This Week at Sonic Promos 9.11.12

In lieu of our traditional Tuesday post summarizing work in the office, we'd like to instead call attention to one very special client project in honor of today's significant date.

On September 11, 2001, Cantor Fitzgerald tragically lost 658 employees from their corporate headquarters on the 101st-105th floors of One World Trade Center in New York City. Every year since the attack, the company and its affiliate BGC Partners, Inc. have hosted a Charity Day event to commemorate these employees.

From Cantor's website:

Beginning in 2002, Cantor Fitzgerald commemorated the employees we lost by reaching out to help others through our annual Charity Day. Continuing this caring legacy, each September 11 (or the business day nearest September 11), Cantor and its affiliate BGC Partners, Inc. operate their business as a global Charity Day to help those less fortunate than ourselves. 100% of our revenues worldwide are donated to charities as our way of commemorating those we lost on 9/11, totaling more than $77 million through 2011. With these funds, we can help children by investing in medical research as well as taking care of those with special needs, provide support for injured veterans, and assist medical and social service organizations around the world and assist many other humanitarian causes. Charity Day for us is very special, as it turns the most difficult day of the year into something positive and uplifting.

We are honored to play a small part in Charity Day and join Cantor Fitzgerald in remembering the lives lost 11 years ago today.
