This Post is a radical departure from my usual writings in that it is based around Westjet Airlines, a Canadian company that has their employees involved in profit sharing plans.

This past year saw the town of Fort McMurray devastated by forest fires, and the following is a quote from Westjet:
“As we talked to our friends in Fort McMurray, one of the common themes that emerged was that many residents felt forgotten and that the approaching Christmas season wasn’t going to be the same. They needed a boost over the holidays, so it was an easy decision for us to focus this year’s Christmas Miracle on a very deserving community.”
