Help me, help you, help others! I’m giving away not one, but two e-gift cards ($25 a piece) and what’s so very special about these particular e-gift cards is that with your $25 you will be able to help one of over 83,000 registered Canadian charities through CanadaHelps.
For donors, CanadaHelps.org simplifies the donating process, making it easy, quick and secure. On any pages where you share personal information or perform financial transactions, CanadaHelps.org encrypts your data using Secure Socket Layers (SSL), allowing you to send and receive information without the worry of having it intercepted. Put simply, donors go online, select as many charities as they wish, make their donation and receive a tax receipt for each donation immediately.
For charities, CanadaHelps.org provides a cost effective alternative to setting up their own online donations facilities: there is no set up fee, no annual charges and charities receive immediate notification when a donation is received. Charities are only charged when a donation is actually made, thereby ensuring a charity is not paying for a service that is not being used. [CanadaHelps – About]
You can win my last contest of 2008 (and first contest of 2009) by sharing how you would spend your donation dollars if you won by either…
I’ll do the draw January 2nd at noon Pacific Time and hopefully we’ll have two lucky winners who can help kick off 2009 with some cheer and good will toward others.
In the meantime, feel free to spread the word about CanadaHelps!
