American Heart Association's 2021 Go Red For Women

The BMD Season of Giving in 2020 was a great way to help out organizations that help others. Continuing community involvement in 2021, we will be looking to the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women campaign. Healthcare and Hospital Law Member and Vice President Amanda Waesch is the Chair of Go Red for Women for the American Heart Association, which is kicking off the 28 days of Heart Health. Show your support on February 5th with “Wear Red and Give” Day. Consider hosting a Jeans Day every Friday in the month of February at your place of business in support of Go Red For Women, even encouraging remote employees to participate. Snap a pic of your team members in their red gear and post on social media (socially distanced in person or a virtual group photo will work, too!) – see the toolkit here for sharing on your favorite social platforms.

BMD's Season of Giving

This holiday season, BMD felt an overwhelming urge to give back to the communities in which we live and work. That is how BMD’s 2020 Season of Giving program was created. In honor of our 20th Anniversary, we designated $20,000 and asked each of our offices to propose charities and causes that were important to them—organizations that lend their care, support, services, resources and education to others on a daily basis.
