Bloomex Supports Heart & Stroke during Stroke Month
As a proud national partner of Heart & Stroke, Bloomex will support fundraising efforts by providing a two dollar donation at checkout option, for any purchase made at Bloomex.ca during the month of June. In addition, Bloomex will offer an exclusive collection featuring three bouquets in summer colours and one planter basket. Fifteen per cent of product purchase from each sale of these special items will also be donated to Heart & Stroke to provide further support.
Heart & Stroke has helped decrease the death rate from 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. Funds raised for Heart & Stroke will help fund critically important research and support the Women's campaign #TimeToSeeRed. Heart disease and stroke is the leading cause of premature death of women and most women don't even know it. Currently, only two-thirds of heart disease and stroke research is focused on women. Heart & Stroke is on a mission to ensure equitable representation of women in the research they fund, close the research gap, and stop women dying unnecessarily.
"We are so happy to continue our partnership with Heart & Stroke," says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex Canada. "Heart & Stroke helps Canadians lead healthier lives, provides support to families in need, and funds groundbreaking research. Bloomex is glad to support that effort during Stroke Month this June."
"We are delighted that Bloomex Canada has once again chosen Heart & Stroke as their charity of choice," says Kari Flannery, National Director, 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 creating more moments, funding breakthroughs and saving lives."
