NEW YORK, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Zenith-Mart, Inc. has today announced a five-part partnership with charity and nonprofit organizations both in the US and internationally, beginning October 1, 2014. The company will donate 10% of net annual profits to each organization in order to make measurable change in the world.
Corporate social responsibility has become increasingly important in today's world. Businesses can and should give back, both to the local communities that support them, and to the wider world. Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program donates real hair to provide wigs for cancer patients. IBM and Dow have delivered sustainable solutions to Ethiopia. Now ZenithMart wants to do their part.
"We are partnering with UNICEF, the American Red Cross, Save the Children, the ALS Association and the American Diabetes Association to make lasting change," said CEO and founder Tochukwu Mbiamnozie. The partnership will include:
- UNICEF – All donations will help save children, care for orphans and feed the poor and needy.
- American Red Cross – Funding will help support the organization in providing emergency care as needed by disaster victims.
- Save the Children – Donations will help support and sponsor disadvantaged children throughout the US.
- ALS Association – Donations will support research into finding a cure for ALS, as well as for emergency preparedness for those suffering from this disease.
- American Diabetes Association – Donations will go toward research for finding a cure for diabetes, in memory of Mr. Tolulope Ojudun, an uncle to the company's VP, who passed away in April 2014.
For Mbiamnozie and the rest of ZenithMart, corporate social responsibility is about more than building trust with consumers. It's about being a responsible member of the global community. It's about doing the right thing, and helping nations, communities and individuals in need.
