SAINT-EUSTACHE, Quebec--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Thanks to the support of its vast network, HGrégoire presented a cheque for $35,000 to Opération Enfant Soleil as part of the organization’s 33rd telethon. For the fourth year in a row, this contribution was made possible in part through a Facebook campaign called “One comment, one donation,” through which the company made its subscribers aware of the organization's exceptional work. For each comment or share of the publication, HGrégoire contributed $0.50 to the campaign.
“Again this year, we were able to count on the amazing involvement of the public and our employees, which enabled us to donate this amount to Opération Enfant Soleil,” explained Harry Kasparian, Vice-President of Marketing. “For HGrégoire, the best way to remain involved in our community is to ensure that children—our future—are able to remain healthy.”
