Norwex – 2017 Spirit of Generosity Award

A Gift for a Legacy

In recognition of the 2017 Spirit of Generosity Award winner, Sherri Atkinson, Senior Executive Sales Leader, ON, Norwex has donated $2000 to Sherri’s selected charity, the Addison Jenner Rolke Wish Fund. Addison’s Wish Fund was founded by Nancy and Jeff Rolke after losing their daughter Addison a few weeks after she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. The Rolke Family shared that it is a means of “comfort and support while creating a legacy in her memory and for others that face a similar challenge.” What started as a Norwex Consultant-Customer relationship for Sherri and Nancy has now developed into a friendship, making it an emotional, heartfelt presentation when Sherri met with the Rolke Family.

The capital contribution to Addison’s Wish Fund will grow in perpetuity, as part of the Community Foundation of Mississauga, where every year, interest earned is donated annually to charities. It is not just a one-time contribution to these charities, but giving is felt for generations to come as the growing capital creates future funding. Addison’s Wish Fund contributes toward The Ronald McDonald House, Hamilton; Pediatric Oncology Group of Ontario and Brain Tumour Research Centre at the Hospital for Sick Children.
