Charity of the MonthHome ServicesOctober 26, 2022by Emma Dietze0October 2022 Charity of the Month: DRIFCan

It’s crazy to think that it’s almost November already. But, it’s even crazier to think that there somehow isn’t a foot of snow on the ground yet?! *Knock on wood.* No complaints from our end. October has been another busy month here at the Mosaic Home Services Group of Companies. 

Our summer seasonal teams have been taking advantage of the great fall weather, providing as many high quality services to our clients as possible. We’re working against time at the moment and thankfully it has seemed to be on our side for the majority of the month! For our year-round and winter seasonal businesses, October and November will continue to ramp up. (Which we’re absolutely loving!)

As October is coming to a close, we’re very excited to announce that our October Charity of the Month is The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation Canada (DRIFCan)! 5% of the sales made by all of our home service companies on Charity Day (which is tomorrow!) will go directly to DRIFCan, supporting their cause. 

About DRIFCan

DRIFCan describes their mission as the following: 

“The Diabetes Research Institute Foundation Canada (DRIFCan) mission is to accelerate the cure for diabetes by directly funding world renowned diabetes researcher Dr. James Shapiro and his team at the University of Alberta. All funds raised stay right here in Edmonton. Our goal is to be a 90/10 foundation, where 90% of all funds raised go directly to cure based research. We are happy to report that in 2021 we were able to achieve this goal. Dr. Shapiro is well known for the Edmonton Protocol, which is islet cell transplantation, and is now being done in 30 countries around the world and all those centers came to Edmonton to be trained by the team here. His latest research is now stem cell research, he is working on taking stem cells from your own blood and gene editing to become insulin producing cells. He is currently having success in mice and next steps in human trials.”

The work that Dr. Shapiro and his team are doing at the University of Alberta is changing lives across the globe. Having the chance to support this incredible initiative and help people with type 1 diabetes to have a cure is very meaningful to our team here at Mosaic.

By supporting DRIFCan, we will have the pleasure of supporting a local charity while simultaneously making a difference on a global scale.
