Here's how you can help:
• Continue your support and share messaging. As we practice social distancing, sharing our message is an important way to show your support.
• Become a monthly donor. Turn what you were spending on weekly take-out coffees and lunches into something more impactful by making a monthly gift.
• Look for creative ways to continue to raise funds. We use Canada Helps for online donations. They offer easy ways for people to raise money as a group or individual. The spring is often a time of bake and garage sales or outdoor sports tournaments. Interested individuals can host online peer-to-peer or workplace campaigns. There are also sites that let you do an online auction instead of an in-person event.
• Consider making a gift in honour of a special someone - Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and graduations are just around the corner. A gift to a charity in the name of your loved one is a beautiful way to recognize life events.
We are fortunate to have such a kind and generous community. We know we can count on you in these challenging and uncertain times.
