Bloomex partners with MADD Canada
MADD Canada's mission is to stop impaired driving and to support victims of this violent crime. Impairment-related crashes remain Canada's leading criminal cause of death with nearly 60% of fatal crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs.
Every day, on average, up to 4 Canadians are killed in alcohol and/or drug-related motor vehicle crashes on public roads involving at least one "principal highway vehicle" (i.e. passenger cars, vans, trucks, and motorcycles)
As part of its support, Bloomex is pleased to offer a $2 donation at checkout option for each order during the month of November. November is a key month for MADD Canada with the launch of Project Red Ribbon, which runs each year throughout the holiday season (November to January) to help keep the sober driving message top of mind when the risk for impaired driving is especially high.
In addition, Bloomex will donate flowers and gift cards for key MADD Canada events including the premiere of the 2019-2020 School Assembly Program, MADD Canada's annual run/walk event Strides for Change, and for MADD Canada's National Leadership Conferences in September and the Victims' Weekend in April.
"We are delighted to partner with MADD Canada," says Sue McDonald, Director of Public Relations and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex Canada. "MADD Canada provides amazing education, support and activism with an aim to stop impaired driving. Every year, too many innocent lives are lost to or impacted by violence that is totally preventable. We're proud to be part of this campaign to end these deaths and support these victims."
