ALIGNMENT Matters issue 22 – Canadians Serving Canadians
ALIGNMENT Matters issue 22 [Oh Canada!] With Canada’s big 150 celebrations right around the corner, the ALIGNED team from coast-to-coast-to-coast is gearing up to mark this historic milestone. It is amazing to see so many people and organizations rallying together to express their pride in this country and Canadian accomplishments!
Pride in Canada, in being 100% Canadian & independently owned, is just one of the reasons why we actively support so many Canadian non-profits and charities on a regular basis – a recent example was our “build day” with Habitat for Humanity. You can learn more about what inspired Joan Schwegel, Finance Manager and Owner, to organize this event here.
Right from the very start, helping others has been a fundamental part of the ALIGNED culture. Thanks to the success our recent 2017 GIVE GENEROUSLY campaign, we had the privilege of spreading the good word about 25 incredible Canadian charities that are close to the hearts of our clients. In the end GlobalMedic was voted “by the people” to receive our 2017 donation, but we wanted to take this time to thank all those that participated in this years campaign!
With nearly half of 2017 already behind us we are increasingly encouraged by the support and interest both existing and future clients of ALIGNED are showing us! We are excited and humbled by how our continued growth will allow us to help more Canadians and give more frequently, consistently and generously to support the growth of our great country!
