Boys and Girls Clubs Across Canada to Receive Kitchen Makeovers Called
easybites Thanks to easyhome Ltd.

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 5, 2013) - Boys and Girls Clubs of
Canada is thrilled to receive a significant donation from easyhome Ltd.
(TSX:EH) to renovate kitchens in Boys and Girls Clubs across Canada, thus
boosting their ability to provide nutritious food options and teach kids how
to prepare healthy meals.

"Each year, Boys and Girls Clubs provide young people with more than 5,000,000
healthy meals and snacks that boost their energy and keep them active and
engaged during the critical after-school period," said Pam Jolliffe, president
and CEO, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada.

"In many ways, the kitchen is the centrepiece of our Clubs - It's a place
where our young people learn how to prepare meals, discover the importance of
good nutrition and develop life-long healthy eating habits. It's a place where
they re-fuel after a long day of school, socialize with their peers and steady
themselves for the evening activities including homework help through our
education programs, sports, leadership development, and so much more."

Lisa Ray, host, Top Chef Canada, Star of Oscar nominated film 'Water' and
Wellness Advocate understands the importance of good nutrition, especially for
growing bodies.

"What I have learned as part of my personal health story is that Food Matters.
Since becoming the CEO of my health, I've connected the dots and believe it's
crucial that kids get a head start in life with nutritional food which leads
to better life choices. I'm thrilled with the easybites campaign and the
possibilities: that the kids can claim life-long healthy eating habits as part
of their birthright" said Ms. Ray, who was with Ms. Jolliffe at the
sponsorship presentation. 

"As a long-standing supporter of Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, we are
delighted to provide this investment and enhance up to 10 easybite kitchens
and equipment in Boys and Girls Clubs across Canada each year," said David
Ingram, President and Chief Executive Officer, easyhome Ltd.

since 2004. easyhome Ltd. Provides an endowment fund at the national level,
