Make Over My Charity Contest

Calling all charities. Enter the $10,000 Make Over My Charity Contest!

Charities give so much to Canada. So we wanted to give a little bit back. That’s why we’re giving away $10,000 in workplace products to one charitable organization.

Together with our vendor partners, we will makeover the office space of a deserving charitable organization with everything from office furniture to business supplies. The prize consists of $10,000 in workplace products, from various brands including Keurig Canada Inc., Ergotron Inc., Bush Business Furniture, Safco, Plantronics, Acco Brands, Danby®, and Kimberly-Clark Professional*.

“We realize that there are many charitable organizations that are in need of new office furniture and equipment to do their jobs well,” said Michael Zahra, president, Staples Business Advantage Canada. “Our goal is to assist a charity that needs it most so they can continue to support individuals and communities in need.”

Eligible charities must submit a photo of the office in need of a makeover online. The winning charity will be selected on November 30, 2016.

RBC #make150count Initiative

Staples Business Advantage is proud to support and be a part of the RBC #make150count initiative!

To celebrate Canada’s remarkable past and looking to its bright future, RBC launched its Canada 150 initiative by giving thousands of young Canadians $150 with one simple request: use the money to help communities prosper. Through #Make150Count, RBC will celebrate these extraordinary acts of kindness that are generated across Canada.

To kick-off the program, some Staples Business Advantage associates joined RBC employees and used 300,000 Post-it Notes to create large scale portraits that depict some of the young Canadians who have already used their $150 to #Make150Count. The vivid images of these young community leaders are front-and-centre on the windows of RBC’s offices in Halifax, Toronto, and Vancouver.
