December 4th is CIBC Miracle Day - Investing in Children
For those who bank with CIBC, please consider making a trade on December 4 2013, to show your support for children across Canada!
CIBC Miracle Day is an employee-driven fundraiser that started at a Wood Gundy branch in 1984. Every year, on the first Wednesday in December, CIBC’s wholesale banking employees and participating CIBC Wood Gundy Investment Advisors donate their fees and commissions to help kids in need.
Since its inception, Miracle Day has raised $69 million for children’s charities across Canada and $219 million globally. The CIBC Children’s Foundation is a registered charity that administers the funds raised each Miracle Day. This year, the CIBC Children’s Foundation will donate $4.5 million to children’s charities in 125 communities across Canada.
The donations serve to support a range of programs benefiting children, including hot meals to start the school day, shelter for families in crisis, camp opportunities, and skills development. If you are a CIBC customer and are planning to make some trades in the next few days, consider making the trades on December 4th. You'll be doing your part to benefit a great cause!
