BGC Partners is one of the world’s leading inter-dealer brokers with 18 offices across all major time zones with over 1,400 brokers worldwide. This year, we are joining BGC Partners, and more than 20 other U.S. charities, for the 8th Annual BGC Charity Day.
Sadly, BGC was the largest corporate victim of 9/11, losing 658 staff in the attacks. Since then, every year BGC holds a Charity Day in commemoration of the victims of September 11. Their offices around the world are visited by celebrities, on behalf of charities. All profits raised from this event are then given from BGC to charity — $12 million was raised last year!
God’s Love is extremely grateful to have been chosen as one of the charities to take part in this event on September 11. As many of you know, God’s Love We Deliver cooked and delivered over 3,000 meals for search and rescue workers in the days following September 11. This anniversary and this day are close to our hearts.
God’s Love will receive fantastic support from some of our wonderful celebrity ambassadors on the 11th. Tamara Tunie, Kyle MacLachlan, Leila Lopes (Miss Universe) and Olivia Culpo (Miss USA) will take time out of their busy schedules to join forces with us and help raise funds to ensure that no one has to face the dual crises of hunger and illness.
We are thrilled to have this wonderful opportunity on this important day and we’re grateful for the support of our celebrity ambassadors who will be there on the 11th.
