Christmas Daddies Raises More Than $420,000

Christmas Daddies on Saturday raised over $420,000 for needy families in Atlantic Canada. Nicom has been a corporate sponsor for over 15 years, donating its time and talents to the web site and online electronic payment gateway for donations. It is something we are proud of, and we are proud of our employees who make this happen.

This year, special thanks go out to Mike Hatfield and Ryan Grant for making this a possibility. It is critical that these technologies run flawlessly throughout the telethon. It is a huge responsibility, one they take very seriously.

Christmas Daddies Again a Huge Success

Christmas Daddies raised in excess of $700,000 this year in support of children throughout the Maritimes. We at Nicom are proud to have been part of this charitable cause for the past 11 years. Roxanne Robinson, Executive Director of Christmas Daddies expressed her thankfulness that “people continue to make underprivileged families in our region a priority at this special time of year”.

Clarification

The article on Christmas Daddies as originally published failed to recognize the work of Genevieve Kelly on the web site, which was attributed solely to Matthew Carleton. While Mr. Carleton constructed the web site and implemented the Social Media elements that were the main points of the article, he did so using the look and feel and original design concepts of Ms Kelly. I apologize to Ms Kelly for this ommission.
