Moderna to Make Donations in Exchange for Signatures at Global Pet Expo
Moderna Products America, based in Gaffney, S.C., is teaming up with Karma Rescue, a Los Angeles-based nonprofit, to raise money for rescue animals at Global Pet Expo, which will be held in Orlando, Fla., March 22-24.
Moderna is asking show attendees to leave their John Hancock on a wall banner at the company’s booth, and for each signature the company receives, Moderna will donate $1 to Karma Rescue.
The fundraiser is modeled after a similar one launched by Moderna’s European headquarters at the Zoomark International pet trade show a couple of years ago. Bruce J. Flantzer, Moderna’s North American director of sales and marketing, said the company secured more than 1,500 signatures at Zoomark and donated more than 1,500 euros in the name of the European pet industry.
“I have had a great experience with Karma rescue and the work they do to rehabilitate people and animals,” he added. “Our goal is to get 2,000 signatures at Global Pet 2017 so that we can give to rescue dogs and cats through Karma.”
