Bloomex Supports Heart & Stroke during Heart Month
As a proud national partner of Heart & Stroke, Bloomex will support fundraising efforts by providing a $2 donation at checkout option, for any purchase made at Bloomex.ca during the month of February. In addition, Bloomex will offer an exclusive Heart & Stroke collection featuring four red bouquets. 15% of product price for each bouquet sold will also be donated 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 research and will also support its #RedList campaign. Heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of premature death of women yet most women are unaware. Two-thirds of heart disease and stroke research is focused on men and that needs to change. Heart & Stroke seeks to ensure equitable representation of women in the funded research, close the research gap, and stop women from dying unnecessarily.
"Bloomex is proud to continue our partnership with Heart & Stroke and donate funds which assist with vital research, patient and family support, and education," says Sue McDonald, Director of PR and Corporate Sponsorship at Bloomex. "We are happy to help support that effort."
"We are delighted that Bloomex Canada has chosen Heart & Stroke as their charity of choice," says Kari Flannery, National Director, Community Engagement, Heart & Stroke. "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."
