'Tis the Season for Giving

With the holidays almost here, we at KMG Gold wanted to share the ways we're planning on giving back to the community this holiday season. One of our company mandates is giving back to the communities we operate in and we strongly believe in the importance of this.

KMG Gold supports a lot of community ventures throughout the year (including raising money for the Movember campaign for men's health, supporting a local soccer team, donating to the Goodwill Industries, Easter Seals Manitoba and the Society for Manitobans with Disabilities) but hasn't really done anything special during the holiday season. We thought it would be a great idea to expand our charity giving for the holiday season so we teamed up with the Christmas Cheer Board to help families in need.

The Christmas Cheer Board is a Winnipeg organization that depends solely on volunteers and the charity of others to help families in need through donations of food and money for their "Feed-A-Family" Christmas drive. This is the first year that KMG Gold is participating in the Christmas drive and we've pledged to sponsor a large family by purchasing groceries and Christmas gifts for the family. The food-filled hamper will be delivered to the family on December 20th by KMG Gold President Michael Gupton (possibly in a Santa hat, but no promises!).

We plan on further increasing our charitable donations as 2014 rolls in, so stay tuned on more information about that and how you can help, if you're interested in doing so. But for now we wanted to leave you with a few ways that you can help local families in need this holiday season. Click on any of the links below for more information about how to donate and where the nearest drop-off location to you is.

  • Christmas Cheer Board: Accepts money, groceries and unused toys (you can also donate toys to the Tower of Toys at the Forks Market)
  • Winnipeg Harvest: Winnipeg's largest food bank is especially looking for baby food and formula this season
  • Siloam Mission: Winnipeg's largest homeless shelter was recently damaged by a broken sprinkler head so they're looking for donations of basic supplies
  • Agape Table: A community nutrition centre that is looking for donations of warm winter clothing
  • Salvation Army: You can donate money to one of their iconic kettles or contribute to their annual Toy Mountain campaign
Happy holidays!

KMG Gold wins BBB Environment Friendly Torch Award for 2013!

KMG Gold Recycling wins BBB Torch AwardWe're happy to be adding another beautiful Torch Award trophy to our collection this year. Our second win for 2013, KMG Gold has been awarded the Environment Friendly award from the Better Business Bureau. This is our fifth consecutive award from the BBB and we couldn't have done it without the nominations we received from our loyal and satisfied customers like you!

You might already know that the BBB Torch Awards is an annual program that recognizes businesses that build trust, advertise honestly, remain transparent in their business dealings, honor their promises and display integrity in all of their marketplace KMG Gold Recycling MIchael Guptonactivities. Companies are nominated by peers and customers and the winners are then selected by a panel of independent judges.

We're proud to announce that KMG Gold is currently the only company in the precious metal recycling industry to receive multiple BBB Torch Awards for Business Excellence and the only company to win the Environment Friendly award for 2013.

To be nominated for the Environment Friendly Award, a business must demonstrate leadership and innovation in minimizing the impact the business has on the environment. In our case, the environmental impact is much broader than just our business. All of the precious metals refined by KMG Gold are recycled and placed back into the world's precious metal markets. This helps reduce the demand for newly mined metals, which in turn, helps reduce both the amount of energy required to mine virgin metal, as well as decrease the amount of acid rock drainage generated by mine waste rock dumps and tailings ponds. By recycling their precious metals, KMG Gold customers have helped reduce the amount of acid waste rock generated by virgin mining of gold alone by more than three million tons.

Mike's Movember Wrap Up

KMG Gold's MIchael Gupton supports MovemberAs November came to a close, so did this year's Movember campaign. If you've been following our blog posts or seeing our recent Facebook updates, you'll recall that KMG Gold President and CEO Michael Gupton participated for the first time this year. Motivated by a KMG Gold Mike Gupton's moustache, last daydesire to help raise money for men's health, he decided to do a twist on the typical moustache and grow his into a handlebar!

We think he did pretty well, and so did his moustache! Mike raised over $185 to support Movember which came from donations from his family, friends and even a few KMG Gold customers. He said he had a lot of fun doing it so we're looking forward to round two in November 2014!

Although Movember is officially over, you can still donate to support the cause. You can donate via Mike's Movember page or through the Movember homepage. Donating to such a great cause is fashionable any time of year, whether or not a cool moustache is involved!
