It Pays to Show How Much You Care!
The results are in! Canada showed everyone how it's done by casting their votes in the Show You Care Today Canada campaign. Following an exciting month of online voting via Facebook, $50,000 cash will be donated to three of the country's leading social and environmental foundations.
The David Suzuki Foundation [www.davidsuzuki.org] emerged as the winner of the Show You Care Today campaign. A $25,000 donation will be made from Seventh Generation to help the foundation continue its efforts in finding solutions to help build a sustainable low-carbon future, protect habitats, and address toxic chemicals in our environment.
Second-place winner, WWF-Canada [www.wwf.ca] will receive a $15,000 donation that will support ongoing initiatives to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.
YWCA Canada [www.ywcacanada.ca.] will receive the third-place award of a $10,000 donation to support their work building a voice for women and children and promoting an equitable society.
Ashley Orgain, Executive Director of the Seventh Generation Foundation, said the company was, "thrilled with the online response to this program. As always our mission is to inspire a more conscious and sustainable world by being an authentic force for positive change. We believe that supporting organizations like WWF-Canada, the David Suzuki Foundation, and the YWCA through our Charitable Giving Program is an impactful way to achieve this."
