)-- After supporting the Farha Foundation during the month of June, 10% of sales revenues generated by the healthy offers on Yingo.ca in July 2012 will be donated to The Canadian Liver Foundation, Quebec’s leading fundraiser in the fight against a disease which affects 1 out of every 10 Canadians.
The Canadian Liver Foundation’s Quebec regional director, Betty Esperanza, explains « Canadian Liver Foundation`s partnership with Yingo is the bridge between health and community. Everybody gets to be part of the solution. LIVERight.
Founded in 1969 by a group of doctors and business leaders concerned about the increasing incidence of liver disease, the Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF) was the first organization in the world devoted to providing support for research and education into the causes, diagnoses, prevention and treatment of all liver disease. Throughout the Foundation’s 40+ years, CLF have served as a model for similar organisations around the world.
Yingo Director Natalie Rivière elaborates, "There are over 100 known forms of liver diseases that affect everyone from infants to adults. We are thrilled to be partnering with the organization dedicated to the development of support programs, education and research on liver diseases for our community. For over 40 years the Canadian Liver Foundation has been a highly appreciated resource for thousands of individuals affected by various diseases. Yingo.org will be hosting a special event on July 11th at 1pm with illness survivor Marc Goulet, who has generously offered to share his experience to benefit all those whose lives or loved one are affected by liver disease."
