Today, we want to share with you the more fun and personal side of Prometheus and team members. As some of you may know, community and philanthropy is a big part of what we do, so we want to share that with you!
Last year, before COVID-19 took over the world, we attended and sponsored the Kidney Gala, an event hosted by the kidney foundation. The event was an amazing success, and one of our clients actually took the stage and shared her and her family's struggle with kidney health, and why she chose to financially support the kidney foundation. We're so happy that we were able to help her realize her goals.
We also raised money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada last year to the tune of $53,000! They are an incredible organization and have helped so many people who have themselves, or have family, that has been affected by blood cancers. You should really check out their site to see the fantastic research they've done, and how far medical science has come over just the last decade.
Around Christmas time, our team got together to make sandwiches, in order to go downtown to hand them out to those who were feeling hungry. We made nearly 300 sandwiches and managed to give all of them out in under an hour! Everyone loves a good sandwich it seems.
And finally, this year, our team is supporting the CMHA, Canadian Mental Health Association. This is an important issue for all of us, because as you can imagine, in the last year, people suffered greatly not just physically, but mentally as well. We all did a great job in coming together to ensure the physical safety for those around us, but unfortunately, many people felt isolated and distanced from others, as a result. We want to help an association like the CMHA raise money and do some good for those around us. So far, we've raised nearly $15,000! We'd love for you to take a look at how CMHA helps others, and support them as well.
We're a local company, with everyone on our team living in this beautiful city, and we think it's so important for us to give back and make our community a better place. It will always be an important value to all of us, and we want you to find that same fulfillment for yourself too.
