Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, a San Diego, California-headquartered nonprofit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of children with physical deformities through reconstructive surgery, kicked off a partnership with Get Maine Lobster  on November 28 that will extend through the Christmas and New Year holiday season.

Based at the historic 48 Union Wharf in Portland, Get Maine Lobster produces a wild-caught product line that is distributed in in flash-frozen, fresh and live formats. On “Giving Tuesday” and beyond, the company will be giving back to Fresh Start by donating five percent of specific online sales. Visitors to its website will see an icon associated with Fresh Start that can be clicked to allocate financial support for the charity. Upon making a purchase, Get Maine Lobster will make the donation at no additional cost for the customer.

“Teaming up with Get Maine Lobster is such an amazing opportunity for us,” stated Shari Brasher, chief executive officer of Fresh Start Surgical Gifts. “Our mission is all about transforming the lives of children in need of life changing care, and this partnership is taking us another step forward in that journey.”

The goal of this campaign is to encourage monthly giving, with options for Get Maine Lobster’s customers to allocate a percentage of their purchase donated on every transaction.

“We are thrilled about our partnership with Fresh Start, a collaboration where a little indulgence meets making a big difference,” said Mark Murrell, Get Maine Lobster founder and chief executive officer. “With every purchase our customers not only can savor the exquisite taste of Maine’s finest lobsters, but also contribute to a wave of positive change. Together, we’re not just sharing the bounty of the sea, but also fostering a tide of generosity and hope.”
