MISSISSAUGA, ON — The Collette Foundation, Collette’s charitable arm, has pledged $200,000 to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine.
The announcement comes on the heels of Collette’s decision to cease operating tours in Russia and to withdraw from all other business interests.
The $200,000 pledge will aid specific organizations on the ground to assist refugees and persons impacted by the crisis in Ukraine.
“The commitment to making the world a better place through travel has always been Collette’s core purpose,” said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, President of Collette. “Providing this level of support is at the forefront of why our family chose to create the Foundation and situations such as these are exactly why we do what we do.”
