A&B is proud to announce that, on March 2, 2012, our firm donated one million Aeroplan miles to the Air Canada Foundation. The not-for-profit organization, which focuses on the health and well-being of children in need, was launched on February 29.
As one of the first donors to Air Canada’s new Foundation, we are pleased that our firm’s Aeroplan miles donation will be used to provide flights to children and their parents so that they can obtain medical care from pediatric hospitals, such as The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
“We are grateful to Aird & Berlis LLP for their generous donation of one million Aeroplan miles to the newly launched Air Canada Foundation,” said Priscille LeBlanc, Chairman of the Air Canada Foundation. “These miles will directly benefit the Hospital Transportation Program which uses donated Aeroplan miles to transport ill children and a parent to centers offering medical treatment unavailable in their community.”
Through the Air Canada Foundation’s Hospital Transportation Program, Aeroplan miles are provided to 15 pediatric hospitals across Canada, enabling sick children to reach the medical care they need. The program runs entirely with the donation of Aeroplan miles.
“At A&B, we are committed to making a difference in the communities in which we live and do business,” said David Malach, partner and member of the firm’s Executive Committee. “Our lawyers and staff are passionate about being able to help those who are less fortunate, particularly children who are in need. We are delighted to have the opportunity, thanks to Aeroplan and the Air Canada Foundation, to donate our Aeroplan miles and know that they are being used for such a worthy cause.”
