“We truly believe that health care touches us all but each of us in different ways,” said Judy Neiser, CEO of the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation. “COVID-19 is one of them but we don’t want to neglect the many other areas of health care that need state of the art equipment, the ability to detect early and more accurately and take care of patients in the North. We are powered by the passion of our donors that this is the time for health care more than ever, as we see how it touches all of us, and right now it has the power to bring us all together. CanadaHelps has launched the sixth annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge with an increased grand prize of $20,000.”
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a national public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. As Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation is one of these charities, every donation during the month of June via CanadaHelps.org, automatically enters Spirit of the North in the draw to win an additional $20,000 donation. The grand prize draw will take place on July 1, Canada Day, and one lucky charity will receive this new grand prize of $20,000.
In 2019 over 109,000 Canadians participated, donating more than $14 million to over 12,000 charities, representing a 25 per cent increase in donations compared to June 2018.
“This year we are asking donors to support our campaign to ‘Make a Difference Mondays’ as giving is the difference that truly makes a difference,” Neiser said. “While also entering us for a chance to win the $20,000 grand prize.”
Here’s how it works.
- $5 Donation – fully charitable and a tax receipt will be provided.
- Tag 5 Friends to do the same
- Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation will receive five times as many opportunities to win $20,000 towards equipment for our healthcare system.
