Voices Supports Royal Canadian Legion's Poppy Fund in Acknowledgement of Remembrance Day

LONDON, ON, Nov. 11, 2021 /CNW/ - The Royal Canadian Legion will receive a contribution to its Poppy Fund from leading freelance audio marketplace Voices this Remembrance Day. Headquartered in London, Canada, Voices aims to support impactful action in its community.

Ann Walton, Vice President, People & Operations at Voices, shares "Remembrance Day is an opportunity to honour and spend a quiet moment in reflection and gratitude for those who have fought and made immeasurable sacrifices for our freedoms. It is also an opportunity to acknowledge the battles we continue to fight for equality and reconciliation in our nation. Now, more than ever, is the time to bolster our communities and one another as we strive to overcome the obstacles the last few years have brought forward. Voices is proud to support Canada's veterans at a time when it is most needed."

The last two years have highlighted the critical need for donations across a wide variety of non-profits within the nonprofit sector, including veteran initiatives. After a very different Remembrance Day last year, the Royal Canadian Legion is hoping that a sense of normalcy will return to this year's poppy drive and to fundraising efforts amidst fewer COVID-19 pandemic restrictions across Canada.

This is especially poignant as this year marks the 100th anniversary of the traditional red poppy, originally adopted by the Great War Veterans Association of Canada?the predecessor to the Royal Canadian Legion?in 1921.

This year, the Legion estimates approximately 20 million poppies will be distributed across Canada and is hopeful Canadians will don the red flower made so popular by John McCrae's poem 'In Flanders Fields' as an act of remembrance and respect.
