High Fives for Health Care
Supporting the health of our community, spreading gratitude, and raising vital funds for BC health care. That’s what High Fives for Health Care is all about!
We know. High fiving isn’t in vogue right now, at least in the traditional sense. But with a little creativity and imagination we can safely “redeem” high fives and cheer on our health care heroes who continue to fight on the front lines of this global pandemic.
You can join with three easy steps:
- Donate your chosen denomination of $5
- Post a photo on Twitter or Instagram of your most creative COVID-friendly high five with #HealthCareHighFive
- Tag @vghfdn and five friends to do the same!
Join the #HealthCareHighFive contest on Instagram and be entered for a chance to win one of the weekly random prize draws for a $100 gift card and the grand prize voting contest worth $500. To enter, simply follow these instructions:
- Follow @vghfdn on Instagram
- Post a single photo on Instagram* of the most creative (COVID-19 friendly) high five you can think of
- Use the hashtag #HealthCareHighFive and tag your photo with @vghfdn
- Tag five friends to do the same
*Note: To be eligible for the contest, your Instagram account must be public. Videos, IG stories, and carousel photos will not be accepted. View full contest details here.
Raising funds, celebrating resilience and spreading cheer
We all know that conditions like strokes, cancer, addiction and other diverse care needs haven’t paused during the pandemic. Which is why we are fundraising for the most urgent needs of VCH hospitals and health care centres, while sharing stories of remarkable recoveries.
Stories of patients who have survived and overcome devastating accidents, diseases and complex conditions because of donor support.
Join us and help High Fives for Health Care reach “up top”!
Join us over these next few weeks to help spread the word via social media with (COVID-19 friendly) high fives, donate, and bring together the entire community all in the name of helping provide care for all British Columbians.
And be sure to tune into not just one, but two broadcast events on Saturday, November 14! You can listen on CKNW between 2:00pm and 3:00pm, or watch Global TV between 5:00pm and 5:30pm.
