The Intelex team joined in the efforts to help the Red Cross raise $43,000 during Red Cross week this month. Every year over 2.2 million people are assisted, trained or educated by the Canadian Red Cross which is over 43,000 people each week! So that’s just $1 for each Canadian that will benefit from this fundraising campaign. Intelex employees collectively contributed $2,825 during Red Cross Week to the cause with Intelex matching every dollar raised for a total of $5,650!
Red Cross week is about celebrating and recognizing the invaluable work of the world’s larget humanitarian organization. The week also pays tribute to Henry Dunant, the Swiss businessman who founded the Red Cross Movement, marking his birthday on May 8th with World Red Cross Day.
