The COVID-19 pandemic has created enormous challenges which have significantly impacted all our daily lives. At Simply Voting, we continue to work around the clock to support organizations conducting safe elections online. Alongside our work in the voting world, in 2020 we wanted to contribute to efforts being made by our local medical community to combat the pandemic, so Simply Voting donated $10,000 to the McGill Emergency COVID-19 Research Fund.
In 2021 we wanted to further expand our giving back efforts. We surveyed our staff for potential charitable organizations that continue to make a difference in our community and the world, and internally we ran our own secret ballot to determine where our focus would be this year. We are pleased to announce that Simply Voting has made a $10,000 donation to each of the following organizations:
- The Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal (NWSM)
The shelter helps support and provide frontline services to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis women and children to promote their empowerment and independence, by providing a safe environment where women can begin to rebuild their lives. The NWSM is the only women’s shelter in Montreal, QC area that provides services exclusively to Aboriginal women and their children. For more information, please visit https://www.nwsm.info.
- Tree Canada
Tree Canada is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to planting and nurturing trees in rural and urban environments. Through their programs, research and engagement efforts, they have helped restore tree cover in areas hit by natural disasters, guided communities in managing their urban forests, supported over 700 schoolyard greening projects and organized urban forest conferences. To date, with community partners and sponsors, they have planted more than 83 million trees. For more information, please visit www.treecanada.ca. Simply Voting’s donation will help sponsor Tree Canada’s Community Tree Grant program in the Montreal, QC area.
Simply Voting is proud to support the missions and efforts of these charitable organizations.
