In recognition of contributions made to improve the lives of children and families throughout the global community through Plan Canada, Re/Max Ontario-Atlantic Canada CEO Pamela Alexander was decorated with the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

The medal was created to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne.  It was presented to 60,000 citizens nationwide.

Alexander was honoured for her 30-year commitment to advancing the vital work of Plan Canada, the world’s largest international development agency.  Plan Canada is a global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to support social justice for children in developing countries.  In 2012, Plan’s work impacted the lives of over 174 million people – including 84 million children – in over 90,100 communities around the world.

“I believe that when you have the ability and the opportunity to make a difference, you should seize it,” says Alexander.  “Even a small contribution is enough to prompt change – every little bit helps.  Whether at home or abroad, there is always a need to be filled or a life-altering advancement to be made. We are all inherently global citizens, and there is no better way to celebrate humanity than to be a steward of its progress.”

Money raised through sponsorships provides a child with life-sustaining essentials including adequate nutrition, access to clean water and sanitation, health care, education and family income.  Alexander’s commitment to Plan Canada and its programs began in 1982, with the sponsorship of her first foster child.
