Easter Seals Canada thanks the following National Sponsors for their ongoing support of The Drop Zone.
Canadian Real Estate Investment Trust (CREIT)
CREIT is Founding Sponsor of the Easter Seals Drop Zone and helped to pioneer one of the most exciting fundraising events in Canada. Since 2005, CREIT has been a strong supporter of the Easter Seals Drop Zone. In addition to lending its buildings for the cause, CREIT also encourages its employees and business partners to participate in, or sponsor, the event.
“We take great pride in knowing that the Drop Zone event is a fundraising initiative that has brought increased awareness and significant new funding for Easter Seals…” says Rael Diamond, President and COO, CREIT Management L.P. “The Drop Zone Event is a creative way for CREIT to contribute to the communities in which we operate our business.”
In 2015, CREIT went above and beyond by rallying a team of 42 superheroes and raising more than $207,000 nationally for Easter Seals.
CREIT is a real estate investment trust focused on accumulating and aggressively managing a portfolio of high-quality real estate assets and delivering the benefits of real estate ownership to Unitholders. The primary benefit is a reliable and, over time, increasing monthly cash distribution. CREIT owns a diversified portfolio of retail, office and industrial properties.
Amway is a National Hero Sponsor of the Easter Seals Drop Zone. Amway’s Independent Business Owners (IBOs) and Amway employees join Team Amway in taking the plunge for Easter Seals.
Amway is committed to helping people live better lives. This commitment extends beyond its products and business opportunity to its partnership with Easter Seals. Amway Canada is proud to partner with its IBOs and employees to support its charity of choice, Easter Seals Canada, as part of Amway’s global One by One campaign.
“Beyond the outstanding work that Easter Seals does for people with disabilities – which is obvious, our affiliation with this great organization has offered us another great way to connect with our independent business owners,” says Jim Ayres, Managing Director, Amway North America. “Through support of initiatives like The Drop Zone, we’ve been able to work with our employees and IBOs towards a common goal – one which defines our company – helping people live better lives.”
