Today, October 17th, our corporate partners are embracing the “spirit of giving”. The Day of Opportunity is an inspiring day for companies, management, and staff to get together and lead the change towards ending poverty.
This day of action was started just four years ago by Opportunity advocate and owners of Advance Canwest Flooring, Paul and Stephen Verhoeff. Over the last 7 years, they have generously supported Opportunity International Canada by raising up to $250,000. Since the first day of Opportunity, our corporate partners have unleashed opportunity for over 1000 clients and their families.
Advance Canwest Flooring have continued their generosity this year with a bowling fundraising event. They put the “fun” in fundraising last week by kicking off “bowl for opportunity”. The staff, management, and administration teams across Canada collectively raised $25,000 in just one day! They have surpassed their goals and continue to fulfil their commitment to support the elimination of poverty across the world.
The giving spirit has been spreading across Canada. In the East, we have Bell CPA & Associates Business Advisory Group celebrating the day of opportunity today. Over the years, they have used this day to raise over $29,000! They were so excited that they have teamed up with another business, Commercial Sustainable Flooring, who are getting their team of staff involved in this day as well.
Together, they are using this day to lead the change towards giving entrepreneurs a helping hand. We all have the same vision in mind of replacing poverty with thriving market places and sustainable economic growth in communities across the world.
If you share our vision for change, your business (big or small) can partner with us for strategic alignment and business growth.
