Pink Shirt Promise
® Brand, trademark of 3M. The campaign included an online social contest where the winner was awarded with a trip for two to Toronto, a guest appearance on Entertainment Tonight and a $1,500 shopping spree. At the core of the campaign, our in-mall display featured a pink Post-It wall between La Senza & Forever 21 where shoppers were invited to write a promise for kindness on a Post-it Note and post it to the wall. For every promise posted on the wall, we will donated $1 to help end bullying in our community. Over 3000 promises were collected for a total of $3000 donated to YouthLink Calgary, Boys & Girls Club of Airdrie and Boys & Girls Club of Calgary.
As part of our commitment to community we are honoured to offer the gift of space, time and funds to the groups, initiatives & causes that make our community great.
CrossIron Mills supports many of the groups, initiatives & causes that make our community a better place for everyone who lives here with us.
We at CrossIron Mills believe that businesses absolutely can – and should – actively support the communities they serve. So we do so, wherever we can.
Charity of Choice
Make-A-Wish Foundation Southern Alberta
CrossIron Mills proudly supports Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta. We have hosted various fundraising initiatives to support them as our charity of choice since 2014. Some of our holiday fundraising initiatives include gift wrap by donation at The Christmas Lounge, which raised a total of $10,000 in charitable proceeds for the foundation in 2015. We also donated $1 for each gift card sold throughout the holiday season.
On January 10, 2016, CrossIron Mills hosted Trade it Up, where shoppers exchanged their holiday gift cards for a CrossIron Mills gift card. All gift cards collected from Trade it Up were then donated back to Make-A-Wish Foundation Southern Alberta for a total of $10,000!
Our partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation Southern Alberta has contributed to the success of fulfilling a young boys wish. Click Here to see how we helped to make Alex's dream come true.
