Thanks to you 12 million Shoppers Optimum Points® were donated and $100,406.55 was raised for relief efforts in Japan.
After an earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan on March 11, 2011, you joined together with Shoppers Drug Mart & Pharmaprix employees to donate 12 million Shoppers Optimum Points® and raise $35,646 for relief efforts in Japan.
Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix pledged to match the value of your Shoppers Optimum Points donations and have contributed $65,843 to date. On May 6, 2011 a cheque was issued for $100,406.55 to the Canadian Red Cross –Japan Relief Effort. Additional donations are still coming in!
Though one can never truly understand the impact of one’s donation, here’s what a member of the Shoppers Drug Mart family shared about his wife’s family in Japan:
“Her parents, who are outside the danger zone, being very proud, were quite humbled that our company and customers were willing to contribute so much to help people that they have never met…”
Thank you for your kindness and generosity. This would not have been possible without your support.
