It’s a SIGN! The EmeraldMos are rallying for their MoBros again this Movember!
Stop right there! Have you seen it? It’s not just a light; it’s a sign—a symbol of solidarity, support, and spirited commitment from the EmeraldMos to their MoBros this Movember!
Here’s what The SIGN stands for:
1️⃣ Unity: Every moustache is a beacon of support, a sign that no MoBro stands alone in the fight for men’s health.
2️⃣ Commitment: By donning the moustache, we’re making a visible pledge to raise awareness, foster conversations, and ignite change.
3️⃣ Action: The Emerald Sign isn’t just for show—it’s a call to action. It’s a reminder to get checked, to look out for one another, and to donate to the cause.
Our province is currently facing a challenging situation with forest fires causing significant damage throughout Alberta. Our thoughts go out to all those affected by these destructive events. As Alberta grapples with devastating forest fires, we at Emerald Management & Realty Ltd. are deeply concerned for all those impacted by these destructive events. Our province has been experiencing unseasonably warm weather, which raises concerns about the potential impact on air quality due to the ongoing fires. Today, we witnessed firsthand how rapidly the air quality can change, highlighting the need for vigilance and adaptability during this dynamic situation.
Additionally, we want to extend our support to those impacted by the crisis. We are collecting donations for the Calgary Food Bank and have made a donation to the Alberta Fires Appeal managed by the Canadian Red Cross. If you would like to contribute to these relief efforts, you can drop off donations for the Calgary Food Bank at our office during regular business hours.
Emerald Management & Realty Ltd. is committed to helping our community during these challenging times. Together, we can overcome these challenges and support one another during this crisis.
Spring Clean Challenge – For the month of April, as the winter chill faded away and the vibrant colors of spring emerged, Emerald Management & Realty Ltd. sought to celebrate the season of renewal in a unique way. We organized a spirited Spring Challenge, encouraging our team members to step outside, bask in the warmer temperatures, tidy up their workspaces, and even lend a hand to those in need. Through this endeavor, we not only fostered a sense of camaraderie and team spirit but also supported worthy causes Making Changes and the Dream Centre.
Spring Cleaning Beyond the Office: The Spring Clean Challenge extended beyond office spaces as we encouraged our employees to declutter their homes and, specifically, their closets. By undertaking this personal spring cleaning mission, our team members not only created more organized living spaces but also discovered an opportunity to give back. We collected clothing items for Making Changes and the Dream Centre, both of which work tirelessly to support those in need, by donating gently used clothing and household items. This dual purpose of personal renewal and community support made the Spring Clean Challenge all the more meaningful. By participating in this initiative, our team members experienced the power of renewal and the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community. As we move forward, we are inspired to continue fostering a culture of collaboration, positivity, and support within our company, and look forward to our next meaningful endeavor.
