On Giving Tuesday, Staples Canada supported MAP, a world-leading research centre dedicated to creating a healthier future for all, through Even the Odds, an initiative to raise awareness of inequity in Canada and fund the development of MAP’s program and policy solutions. On Tuesday, November 30, and throughout the holiday season, Staples Canada will raise funds in-store and online, as well as through sales of an Inspiration Pack.

“Playing a part in the Giving Tuesday movement with MAP is important to who we are as a company and what we believe in. The work they are doing continues to shed light on inequity in Canada and help build vibrant, healthy communities,” said David Boone, CEO, Staples Canada. “We are excited to further our partnership with MAP’s innovative research programs and to lend our support, especially during the holiday season.”

Staples Canada has created an Inspiration Pack by Pep Rally, available for $6.99. It includes a set of pencil crayons, an eraser, and a sharpener, with 100% of the proceeds going to MAP, available now and while supplies last at Staples stores across Canada. Customers can also make a donation in-store or online at staples.ca/EvenTheOdds on Tuesday, November 30, and throughout the holiday season, with 100% of the proceeds going to MAP.

Earlier this year, Staples Canada announced a long-term partnership with MAP to Even the Odds and, to date, has raised more than $1.05 million with the generous support of Staples customers, vendors and corporate donations. Through innovative research and real-world program and policy solutions, MAP scientists tackle complex community health issues at the intersection of health and inequity. Even the Odds is a bold commitment to make a difference in Canada’s unique and diverse communities through corporate donations, fundraising and awareness.
