TORONTO, Dec. 19, 2012 /CNW/ - Canadian company, d'Avicenna is getting
into the holiday spirit. Through December and January, packages of
eaurganic (TM) certified organic beauty products will be shipped to
spouses in the Greater Toronto Area who have husbands deployed
D'Avicenna is working with Canadian Military Family Resource Centres to
expand the distribution nationally in the New Year and, to include
immediate family members. In addition to the care package, the
company is offering Canadian Forces families reduced pricing on all
eaurganic skin and hair care products.
"The holiday season can be an emotionally difficult time for spouses and
families who are separated from their Canadian Forces loved one. This
thoughtful gift depicts the support Canadians have for our CF members,"
said Roxanna Gumiela, Executive Director, Toronto Military Family
Resource Centre. "This donation embodies the true spirit of the
holidays - the act of kindness and of giving."
The idea to give back to the armed forces community came from Shahin
Kalantari, president of d'Avicenna. Shahin was an artillery soldier
during the 1985-1986 Iran-Iraq war. Serving in the war heavily
influenced the direction he took in business. In 2004, he invested his
life-savings to build d'Avicenna, an environmentally green and ethical
certified organic beauty products company that uses natural plant-based
products and green manufacturing processes.
"I know first-hand the strength it takes to serve in the middle of a war
zone and how hard it is to be away from your loved ones," he said.
"This gift is a way of honouring the courageous work of Canadian
soldiers, and to give back where I can. I am also hoping that this
will encourage other Canadian companies to follow suit."
