SYDNEY, NSW: Canon Australia is demonstrating its Christmas cheer this year, donating a large number of laser printers to charitable organisations.
The Australian office of the Japanese office product specialists recently donated 60 printers to charities in need of professional colour printing.
Charities ranged from people with disabilities to environmental protection agencies.
Talking about this is Canon Australia managing director Kenji Kobayashi.
“Our kyosei philosophy of ‘living and working together for the common good’ has practical outcomes in the form of our work with charities,” said Kobayashi. “We are delighted to be able to provide support to such worthy organisations that in turn can use our solutions to help others.”
One of the organisation receiving a printer was the Shepherd Centre, a charity that teaches deaf and hearing-impaired children to listen and speak.
“As a not for profit organisation that needs to raise most of its funds, we rely heavily on the generosity of companies such as Canon,” said Shepherd Centre CEO Anthea Green.
“Canon’s Creative for a Cause campaign was a great way for lesser-known charities to increase awareness for the work that they do and to see Canon following up with another initiative demonstrates its ongoing commitment to charities.”
