Ottawa, Canada, June 14, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Bloomex Canada is proud to announce the launch of their partnership with the Heart & Stroke Foundation (HSF) for 2018/2019. Bloomex will support fundraising efforts with in-kind donations for staff and donor recognition as well as for major events such as the Red Dress Gala.
As part of the partnership Bloomex will also provide a two dollar donation at checkout option for Stroke Month in June, and for Heart Month in February. In addition, Bloomex will create a signature sympathy bouquet that will see 15 percent of sale donated straight to Heart & Stroke.
Bloomex will also be creating an exclusive red-themed collection to help raise funds for Heart Month in February 2019.
The HSF has helped decrease heart disease and stroke in Canada by 75 per cent over the past 60 years. A staggering 1.6 million Canadians live with heart disease and stroke with 9 in 10 having at least one risk factor. Heart attacks are more deadly for women than mean so the HSF has developed The Ms. Understood initiative to help improve women’s heart health through research and healthcare programs.
“We are so excited to be partnering with the Heart & Stroke Foundation,” says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex Canada. “They do such amazing work and we feel honoured to be joining their campaign to help Canadians lead healthy lives free of heart attack and stroke.”
“We are delighted that Bloomex Canada has chosen Heart & Stroke as their charity of choice,” says Kari Flannery, Interim Vice President of Community Engagement. “Everything we do is aimed at reducing the death rate and risk factors associated with heart disease and stroke. Because of organizations like Bloomex Canada, Heart & Stroke is saving moments, funding breakthroughs and saving lives.”
