SIGMA Corporation of America, a leading camera and lens manufacturer for both photography and cinema applications, is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Focused on the Fight Charitable Giving campaign. As in the two years prior, SIGMA, whose focus for the fundraiser is a humanitarian one, is partnering with their dealers to help people suffering hardships of any kind. From April 1 through June 30, 2022, 5% of all sales at participating retail partners will be donated to three charitable organizations, including Save the Children - Ukraine, and World Central Kitchen, each of which is providing immediate humanitarian relief to Ukraine.

The first two Focused on the Fight campaigns have raised over $193,000 for charitable organizations across the United States in partnership with twenty-four participating retail partners, and this year, the campaign continues its mission to help provide aid to the communities that need it most right now.

Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of SIGMA America states, "Photography, by its creative nature, promotes awareness, compassion, and empathy; it is at the heart of all we do. And I strongly believe that SIGMA America's picture must match our words. As the US subsidiary of a global company, and as fellow human beings, supporting these humanitarian charities that are providing relief to the Ukrainian people at this time of extreme suffering is a concrete way for us to demonstrate that our community's commitment to compassion knows no boundaries."
