“We only have what we give.” – Isabel Allende
The Reasons Why
For our team here at Pelee Island Winery, this quote best captures what the spirit of giving means to us. So when the MS Society of Canada reached out to us, we knew we wanted to give.
“At Pelee Island Winery, we were approached by MS Society regarding a potential partnership; And, for us that made sense. We are all part of a community affected by MS and fortunately this is something we can help in our own small way. Personally, my sister-in law was diagnosed with MS in 2008. Our family has been supportive of MS Society of Canada’s initiatives. We believe in research and understand the investment has helped to improve the lives of all Canadians affected by MS,” Darryl , Sales Manager.
We have multiple team members who have one or two family members and/or close friends whose lives have been affected by MS. It is a cause that is close to many hearts here at Pelee Island Winery.
This is why starting Friday, December 12th until Thursday, December 17th, we will be donating $5 from every order of $75 or more from our online Wine Shop to the MS Society of Canada when you add the code MS to your order at checkout.
We are also offering you the option to ignite your own holiday spirit of giving by matching the $5 donation. You will see this as an option in your check out cart.
MS Society of Canada
Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world. Approximately 1 in every 385 Canadians live with MS. On average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with MS every day.
There is hope for a future free of MS. The MS Society of Canada has contributed more than $175 million towards MS research since 1948. Their research investment has enabled for ground-breaking research in a variety of important topics, including causes and risk factors, symptom management, mechanisms of disease, imaging, wellness, and treatments.
We hope you will join us in supporting the MS Society of Canada.
