Remembering those who were lost by helping those in need; that's the meaning behind Charity Day at Cantor Fitzgerald, a leading financial services firm, and its affiliates BGC Partners, Inc. and GFI Group. On September 11, 2018, dozens of celebrities - including President Bill Clinton, Mr. Tony Blair, Common, Saquon Barkley, Alec Baldwin, and more - participated in the firms’ most successful Charity Day event to date, raising more than $12 million in a single day for various charities around the world. Charity Day also kicked off an effort to raise $5 million for Puerto Rico to help families affected by last year’s Hurricanes Maria and Jose to rebuild their homes and their lives.
Each year, Cantor Fitzgerald, BGC Partners and GFI Group donate 100 percent of the global revenues generated on Charity Day to the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and, to date, have raised approximately $159 million globally since its inception in 2005.

Not many people are really able to keep things under tight wraps. Certainly, many a jailbird might be able to or the occasional secret agent perhaps, but at the latest when it comes to grandpas and grandmas, best friends or any typical gossips, information leaks are everywhere. Even in Hillary Clinton’s administration, much to the enjoyment of Wikileaks. However, in Düsseldorf a branch of trade is currently presenting leak-free products, guaranteed for 50 years. If only everyone were able to do what the valves on display at the Valve World Expo are capable of.
