BLR Commits Percentage of Next Week’s Proceeds to High Fives Foundation

Brentwood, TN (July 10, 2017) – Leading information publisher BLR®—Business & Legal Resources today announced it will dedicate 5 percent of e-commerce sales between July 10 and 14 to nonprofit organization High Fives Foundation, furthering its commitment to supporting community and advocating for personal and corporate safety and injury prevention.

"At BLR, we always strive to make a positive impact on our greater community," says Rafael Cardoso, president of BLR. "By partnering with the High Fives Foundation, we have the opportunity to provide real and practical support to an individual in need as they rehabilitate from injury. What’s more, we can reinforce a shared message of safety that resonates on both a personal and occupational level.”

“Every dollar raised helps us fund the requests of all Empowerment Athletes,” says Roy Tuscany, co-founder and executive director of High Fives Foundation. “We’re grateful to BLR for being a company that is built around positive agents of change.”

This campaign also has a personal connection to BLR’s corporate family. In August 2016, an employee’s husband suffered a spinal cord injury that rendered him paralyzed. Both BLR and the High Fives Foundation rallied to support the family during that time and the months that followed.

“I feel incredibly fortunate to belong to a company that supports its own in action and not just words,” says the BLR employee impacted by the accident. “BLR’s generosity and camaraderie during this difficult time has set a powerful and genuine example of what can be accomplished when an organization truly values and stands behind its people.”
