Update: Thank you so much to everyone who took part in Giving Tuesday 2015 and helped raised $1,583! We are humbled and inspired by your generosity. Together, we will continue speaking out for the health of our lake!
Dec. 1 is Giving Tuesday – a global day to give back – and this year, we’ve set ourselves an ambitious goal: raise $2,000 in 24 hours.
We’re spending this week celebrating people who are helping make a healthy Lake Winnipeg possible by giving to LWF, adding a new story each day. We hope their passion for our great lake will inspire you to get involved, too.
For generations, Lake Winnipeg has given us so much. On Dec. 1, let’s give something back.
Occurring on the first Tuesday after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday – immediately after the sales frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday – Giving Tuesday is a day to celebrate and support charities.
We’ve set ourselves an ambitious 2015 goal: raise $2,000 in 24 hours.
We’ve also created a special online donation page that makes giving even easier. (It’s already live, should you prefer to join those who have already begun the celebration.)
Looking to leverage the impact of your gift? On Dec. 1, online donations made through CanadaHelps.org or GivingTuesday.ca using Interac Online will be matched* up to $25 per donation!
Starting today and for the rest of the week, we’ll be using our website, along with our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts, to celebrate some of the people who are helping make a healthy Lake Winnipeg possible by giving to LWF: People like Pam and Rob, who made a donation to LWF in lieu of guest favours at their wedding; Ella, whose connection to Lake Winnipeg spans nine decades; and Gabby and Eddie, two elementary students whose efforts have inspired their entire school to take action.
These passionate supporters share a commitment to being part of the solution. We hope their stories will inspire you to get involved, too.
Thank you for your continued interest in the health of Lake Winnipeg,
The LWF team
* Matching dollars will be granted on a first come first served basis, starting at 8 a.m. CT and continuing up to a maximum total of $10,000 in matching dollars.
