Polaris Travel Clinic and Pharmacy donates $1 from every vaccine given at our clinic to a charitable organization.
From January to April our selected charity was Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). We are happy to report that Polaris donated $215 to MSF as a result of this program.
Our plan is to rotate charities every 4 months, so we are now looking for a charity to donate to for the May to August period. This time we have decided to make our donation to a local Airdrie and area charity. Even though we have now reached June, we have not decided which charity we will be supporting. There are a lot of worthy causes out there, including some we probably don’t even know about. So we thought we would take suggestions and then we’d make a decision.
How to apply and/or suggest: send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and describe briefly your organization and what you plan to do with the donation. Please include a contact phone number in your message. We would prefer if the organization is a registered charity if possible, but this is not an absolute requirement. If you have any connections to health care and/or overseas programs make sure to include it in your message.
The deadline for applications will be at the end of the day on Monday, June 17, 2013. Keep checking in at our website www.polaristravelclinic.ca, like our Facebook page, or follow us on Twitter to keep updated.
