H&M and Children’s Health Fund Celebrate Giving Tuesday

 

In celebration of Giving Tuesday, H&M is supporting Children’s Health Fund and its mission of ensuring access to high-quality healthcare for some of America’s most disadvantaged children. Through a gift card sales drive online and in all stores this holiday season, H&M will donate 5% of card purchase amounts to the Children’s Health Fund, with a minimum donation of $350,000 and a maximum of $500,000.

Additionally, on Giving Tuesday, November 27th, H&M, along with employee volunteers, will hand out nearly 400 H&M coats to students at the Harlem flagship location of Healthy and Ready to Learn (HRL), an innovative program supported by H&M Foundation. Another 250 coats will be distributed to children who are seen at CHF’s clinic in the South Bronx as well as other schools who participate in the Healthy and Ready to Learn program. This Giving Tuesday effort launches a nationwide volunteer program that will roll out in 2019 to continue giving the gift of healthcare to children in need. H&M employees across the country will be volunteering in a variety of ways to help support Children’s Health Fund’s programs and the children they serve.

“We are so grateful to H&M for donating coats to the children we serve here in New York so that they are prepared for the cold winter months ahead,” said Dennis Walto, Chief Executive Officer of Children’s Health Fund. “It’s the perfect illustration of H&M’s commitment to keeping the students at this school healthy and ready to learn.”

Children’s Health Fund is committed to ensuring high quality health care to America’s most disadvantaged children. They achieve this through expanding access to comprehensive primary care, reducing health barriers to learning, responding to the needs of children impacted by major public health crises, and improving the health and wellbeing of children through advocacy and public education efforts.

The H&M Foundation currently partners with the Children’s Health Fund, supporting an innovative school-based program in New York, designed to get children healthy and ready to learn. In the first phase of the project, Healthy and Ready to Learn was designed to determine best practices for addressing health barriers that risk slowing down children’s ability to learn. During the coming years, Children’s Health Fund will continue to support the HRL model and increase both services and dissemination of practices that reduce health barriers to learning in New York City while also preparing the model to be tested and scaled nationally.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
