Engage Your Workplace: Corporate Social Responsibility

There are many powerful reasons why companies should partner with Help Lesotho! Not only will your donations go to work immediately to help vulnerable girls, youth and grandmothers in Lesotho, but will demonstrate your corporate social responsibility to your existing customers and our community filled with new, potential customers.

According to the Edelman Good Purpose Survey (2014)

  • 64% of Canadians will recommend a brand they have tried or heard about to friends and family when it is for a good cause they believe in
  • 67% of Canadians said they would switch brands that are comparable in quality and price if the brand supports a cause they believe to be worthy
  • 71% of Canadians said brands should spend less money on “advertising” and more on causes

There is a lot to be gained by partnering with Help Lesotho and we look forward to working with you to meet your needs. Some suggested ways to align with our cause include:

Benefit Help Lesotho at your next event – Corporate events are a perfect way to recognize and reward your hardworking, dedicated staff and to build team spirit. By naming Help Lesotho as the beneficiary of such an event you will further demonstrate your corporate social responsibility.

Match employee contributions – Show your employees you care and value their dedication to helping others by matching their donations and/or fundraising efforts.

Host a Pearl Party – Support leadership initiatives for girls in Lesotho, and offer your employees a fun and interactive opportunity for team building. Pearl Parties are typically hosted in a private home or at a business and Pearls 4 Girls volunteers will attend the party and be responsible for selling the jewellery. Please note that Pearl Party locations are primarily restricted to Ottawa, ON, but occasionally parties can be arranged in other locations (ie. Kingston, Toronto, Montreal). If you are interested in hosting a Pearl Party, please contact pearl@pearls4girls.org.

Donate AEROPLAN points – Do your employees travel a lot for business? We encourage you and your employees to consider a donation of AEROPLAN points to Help Lesotho via the Beyond Miles Program.
