Over the past months we have focused each Friday on a different charity. Our Charity Spotlights reinforce our ethos in finding ways to be socially responsible.
While we have no new charity spotlight on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day we especially think of all those who are alone, homeless, in poverty and in desperate need. Here is a quick round-up of the charity spotlights we have featured.
Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful illustration of those at risk of poverty, the wider community, non-profit and for-profit sectors collaborating together.
Habitat for Humanity has expanded substantially from its roots in Georgia, USA, in 1976. It has become a worldwide recognized non-profit driving force both in providing much needed support one family at a time, while also advocating strongly for those at risk of homelessness. In 2011, Habitat for Humanity Canada completed its 2,000th home and has now helped 2,700 families. You can read the last Habitat for Humanity Canada Progress Report here.
McKinsey&Company report $44 billion in beyond-the-product solutions in the US alone. Here we explore how multi-national Med Tech corporations can develop health outcome models. Much of the success lies in creating sustainable cultural change owned by the healthcare system.
Content is King. The Big Issue has remarkable content such that I would buy a copy for that fact alone over other magazines and papers. The Big Issue of course is so much more worthy than that accolade alone.
