Bloomex continues support for ALS Canada
As a partner of ALS Canada, Bloomex will support fundraising efforts by continuing a special account on Bloomex.ca. This sign up page is available to anyone who wishes to support ALS Canada. By signing up here, participants will receive a 15 per cent discount on any Bloomex purchase in 2019. In addition, Bloomex will donate 10 per cent of each purchase to ALS Canada.
Bloomex is also launching a special bouquet called Summer Joy, which will be available across Canada here during ALS Awareness Month in June 2019. Fifteen percent of each bouquet purchase will be donated to ALS Canada.
"We are proud to continue our partnership with ALS Canada," says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex Canada. "People and families living with ALS deserve all the support they can get and Bloomex is glad to participate in fundraising efforts for ALS Awareness Month."
"It's so exciting to see this partnership with a company like Bloomex," said Denis Blais, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2015. "It means a lot to the ALS community as well as the many people who have connections with the disease. With a partnership like this, people can donate to the cause all through the year, just by offering flowers, or gift baskets to their loved ones. Everybody wins, it's fabulous! Thank you Bloomex for stepping up and supporting people living with ALS."

ABOUT ALS CANADA
Founded in 1977, the ALS Society of Canada (ALS Canada) works with the ALS community to improve the lives of people affected by ALS through support, advocacy and investment in research for a future without ALS. We are a registered charity that receives no government funding – all of our services and research are funded through the generosity of our donors. Through the ALS Canada Research Program, we fund peer-reviewed research grants, foster collaboration and build capacity within Canada's ALS research community and participate in new areas of research where we are well-positioned to have an impact. Within Ontario, ALS Canada has a role similar to that of the provincial ALS societies providing services and support to help meet the needs of people living with ALS. Through advocacy federally and provincially within Ontario, ALS Canada gives voice to the collective experience of people living with ALS to help drive program and system changes for the ALS community.www.als.ca (https://www.als.ca/)
