TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Greenwin Inc. (www.greenwin.ca), a leading Canadian landlord, property manager and developer, has
officially announced a partnership with the international Pay it Forward Movement (PIF).
Greenwin is the first real estate firm to join PIF and the very first
corporate sponsor of the new It's Cool to be Kind (C2BK) program,
which, through a simple white bracelet, promotes action-oriented
pro-kindness awareness among school-aged children and young adults from
pre-school to college worldwide.
Says Charley Johnson, head of the PIF Foundation: "We are so excited
about PIF's C2BK program and its potential to change the mindsets of
children. With the support of Greenwin, our goal for this bracelet to
become the new symbol of cool is already gaining traction in a big way."
C2BK was created to associate being cool and popular with being kind,
accepting others and taking positive action in the form of random acts
of kindness. The PIF bracelet, created and patented by Charley Johnson,
was chosen as the new symbol of cool because it can be worn 24/7 by everyone. As well, it is affordable and
can be easily shared as a way to encourage altruism.
"Greenwin's core focus is people. Our residents, our clients, our team
and the neighbourhoods surrounding our properties are all affected by
our company's actions," says Jessica Green, Corporate Communications,
Greenwin Inc. "Given this potential to have such a profound effect on
the lives of others, we have dedicated ourselves to a longstanding
tradition of community-based philanthropy. Supporting PIF and the C2BK
program fits seamlessly with our vision."
Greenwin's sponsorship will be providing bracelets for the program. All
money collected will be put back into the purchase of more bracelets
for more wrists around the world.
