Guaranteed Rate has donated over $3.3 million to the non-profit organization Baby2Baby. The new initiative, known as Guaranteed Love, raised over $1.1 million in 10 days through employers, families and friends, according to a press release from the company.
“This is very, very powerful,” Guaranteed Rate President and CEO Victor Ciardelli said in the press release. “We’re seeing so many people in need, with nowhere else to turn. As a company, we are blessed to be in a position to make such a positive difference. We have an amazing group of incredibly generous employees who came together yet again to make a real impact on so many families and children. By working together, we can accomplish amazing things.”
The donation from Guaranteed Rate will help over 150,000 children in need during the holidays. Baby2Baby has donated over 40 million essentials to struggling children during the COVID-19 crisis. The nonprofit was able to provide necessities for struggling families by buying essential products below retail price and increasing the donation value.
“We are so grateful to Guaranteed Rate for selecting Baby2Baby as the nonprofit partner for its Guaranteed Love campaign,” Baby2Baby Co-CEOs Norah Weinstein and Kelly Sawyer Patricof said. “The generosity of their employees coupled with the company’s match will allow us to distribute millions of dollars worth of basic essentials to children across the country impacted by the pandemic in their biggest time of need.”
