Foundation says ‘thank you’ with $50 gift card for frontline health workers

An organisation has donated $50 gift cards to Bermuda Hospitals Boards staff to thank them for their work throughout the pandemic.

Sean McNulty, founder of the Frontline Foundation, delivered the gift cards to Judy Richardson, the BHB Chief of Nursing on Tuesday.

The cards will go to a range of BHB staff in a number of departments, including mental health and acute care, long term care, nurse auxiliary, allied health services and outpatient services.

Environmental service workers, food service workers, transporters and multiple layers of administrative and support staff are also set to benefit from the donation.

In a letter to hospital staff, Mr McNulty said: “This is an everyone initiative, and is a small gesture from us to say thank you very much for all that you do, and particularly for your exceptional effort during this pandemic, which is on top of all the important things that you already do.

“What you and other front line workers are doing for the community is really what we are thankful for; and is the main reason we have started this foundation in the first place.”

Ms Richardson thanked Mr McNulty and the Frontline Foundation for their contributions and recognition of the hard work carried out by staff.

She said: “Our frontline healthcare workers worked tirelessly to treat and save patients during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Their unfaltering commitment to service our community was on display every day.

“With their compassion, these frontline heroes continued to ‘pursue excellence through improvement, to make Bermuda proud’.”

Mr McNulty, the chief executive officer and portfolio manager of Toronto-based asset management firm XIB Financial, moved to Bermuda as a digital nomad last year.

In May, he launched the Frontline Foundation to support essential workers and businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mr McNulty donated $500,000 to the cause himself to fund several initiatives including a 12-day giveaway that offered $50 gift cards to people who got vaccinated.

He pledged that each gift card would be matched with another gift card for an essential worker.
