Cancer Foundation for every job posting purchased in February
TORONTO, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - RetiredWorker.ca, the largest employment website
for 50+ job-seekers in Canada, has just announced that they will donate $5 to
the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation for every job posting purchased in
"Retired Worker was inspired by my mother, who continues to be our model
for the changing face of retirement," says Sarah Welstead, Co-Founder and
Managing Partner. "However, Max's mother died of breast cancer about a year
before we started Retired Worker. This is our way of honoring her memory."
'Max' is Max Stocker, the other co-founder of Retired Worker. "My
mother's illness permanently raised my awareness of the importance of breast
cancer research," says Stocker, 31, who is also the company's CIO. "Throughout
her illness, we were very appreciative of the support we received from the
community - we couldn't think of a better way to give back to an organization
which has done a lot for a disease that takes too many of our mothers, wives,
sisters and daughters far too early."
