VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Uniserve Communications Corp. (Uniserve) is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of a year-long “Share the Love” charity fundraising project, which will engage with Uniserve’s 13,000 residential and business customers across the country to support the Variety Children’s Charity as well as the SOS Children’s Village BC.

Variety’s mission is to step in when health care ends, providing direct help to children with special needs in BC. SOS Children’s Village BC provides “homes, a supportive community, and programs to help foster children and youth in need grow into caring, self-reliant adults.”

As Nicholas Jeffery, Uniserve’s CEO said, “Uniserve’s business is all about connecting people, places and things ... a business that has proudly been providing services to BC and Alberta customers for 30 years with telecommunications, media and technology. We are thrilled to sponsor Variety at its major Gala event in BC and will continue the support them throughout the year. Variety Children’s Charity complements beautifully the support we have already been providing to our other major charity, the SOS Children’s Village BC.”

As part of the initiative, starting in May, 2018, Uniserve is asking all its BC clients to consider donating one dollar ($1) from their monthly invoices for a year, all of which will go towards Uniserve’s two charities of choice: Variety’s BC Chapter and SOS Children’s Village BC. Uniserve will then enter every client participant’s name into a year-end Grand Prize draw providing a VIP one-week trip for two to Havana, Cuba.

Uniserve will also be the premier sponsor for the upcoming April 14th Vancouver “A Night in Havana” fundraiser for Variety. “We are so pleased Uniserve will be joining us for what is sure to be an exciting and memorable Gala,” said Cally Wesson, Variety BC’s CEO. “And of course, we’re extremely honoured to be one of Uniserve’s two charity of choices for the year.”

For over 50 years, Variety has ensured children have the support to reach their potential and thrive. Since 2010, Variety has distributed more than $30 million in funding to families and organizations in communities across the provinces. With Uniserve’s help, and the new “Share the Love” initiative, even more can be raised, making it possible for Variety to continue being there when children and families need help the most.

Uniserve is also a proud sponsor of the SOS Children’s Village BC, providing free Internet, Telecommunications and Media Services for their entire Village.  Uniserve supports foster children and vulnerable youth because they believe every child should belong to a family and grow with love, respect and security.
