NANNY ANGEL NETWORKFor Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2021, Corum Digital partnered with Nanny Angel Network (NAN) to support mothers with cancer and their children in the GTA & Kingston area. Founder Audrey Guth spoke with our team about how her own journey as a breast cancer survivor inspired her to provide resources and specialized care for mothers diagnosed with cancer and their children. For every dollar that the team raised, Corum Digital pledged a 2:1 corporate match, creating a 3X donation impact.
“We have a vision of a world where mothers in need no longer feel alone during cancer treatment, but are resilient, less stressed and recover quickly. NAN gives young kids excellent care at home, helps them feel less anxious and gives them the chance to share their feelings in a safe environment. Together, we are working to create a reality where every mother with cancer gets the care she needs for her children – so she has enough time to take care of herself.” – Audrey Guth, NAN Founder

GLOBAL RECYCLING DAYThe Corum Miracles team proudly lends its support to The Global Recycling Foundation in support of Global Recycling Day. The Global Recycling Foundation is pleased to announce the theme of Global Recycling Day 2020 as #RecyclingHeroes. This will recognize the people, places and activities that showcase what an important role recycling plays in contributing to an environmentally stable planet and a greener future which will benefit all. Global Recycling Day was created in 2018 to help recognize, and celebrate, the importance recycling plays in preserving our precious primary resources and securing the future of our planet. It is a day for the world to come together and put the planet first.
The mission of Global Recycling Day, as set out by the Global Recycling Foundation, is twofold:
- To tell world leaders that recycling is simply too important not to be a global issue, and that a common, joined up approach to recycling is urgently needed.
- To ask people across the planet to think resource, not waste, when it comes to the goods around us – until this happens, we simply won’t award recycled goods the true value and repurpose they deserve.

CKNW KIDS' FUND'S PINK SHIRT DAY
The Corum Digital miracles team proudly lends it’s support to Pink Shirt Day. Now a movement celebrated across the globe, Pink Shirt Day has humble beginnings. Inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia, CKNW Kids' Fund, working with partners Boys & Girls Clubs and 980 CKNW, was inspired to raise funds to support anti-bullying programs. Bullying is a major problem in our schools, and online. Over the month of February, and throughout the year, CKNW Kids' Fund's Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of these issues, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem. The idea has only grown each year, with worldwide support and participation. Countries across the globe are now organizing anti-bullying fundraisers of their own. In fact, last year alone, people in almost 180 countries shared their support of Pink Shirt Day through social media posts and donations.On February 26, 2020, we encourage everyone to practice kindness and wear pink to symbolize that you do not tolerate bullying.
