These cards are perfect for hiding in the tree or bringing along to your next get-together. We can also mail cards anywhere within Canada or the U.S. on your behalf! (To ensure delivery within Canada before Dec. 25, make your donation and/or contact us by Dec. 15.) Learn more here – or visit our special CanadaHelps page to make your donation now.

Fundraising products

When you shop LWF, you make possible science-based solutions for Lake Winnipeg. Merchandise available for purchase through our website includes:

Additionally, make sure to check out Winnipeg jeweller Hilary Druxman’s sterling silver necklaces, designed in support of LWF. And don’t forget stocking stuffers! One dollar from the sale of every bottle of Tiber River’s H2Whoa foaming hand soap is donated to LWF.

Luckygirl Holiday 2017 Pop Up Shop

Live in Winnipeg? Come shop with us in person at the Luckygirl Holiday 2017 Pop Up Shop – happening on Sunday, Dec. 17.

We’ll be set up at 300 Ross Ave. in the Exchange District (the space attached to Hut K) between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Warning: Last year we sold out of both sizes of our K.BARTESKI wooden ornaments by early afternoon!

Thank you for your continued interest in Lake Winnipeg; your ongoing support throughout the year is a source of inspiration and motivation for all of us here at the foundation.

Wishing you a warm holiday season and a happy new year,

The LWF team
