We're looking to raise $100,000 in order to send e-gift cards for groceries to hundreds of households in times of need.
During this global pandemic it's extremely difficult to help one another with day to day necessities. Social distancing makes a "helping hand" an impossibility. And while many of us are out of work and doing our best to make ends meet, the demands of our landlords, our families, life necessities, or medical conditions make spending money on our basic nutritional essentials feel like a desperate decision. Our goal is to try to ease that pressure just a bit for people in our community.
We're hoping you can help make change for a hundred.
Any bit helps. Thanks, everyone.
What else is there to know? Here are some FAQs
How will I obtain and distribute the gift cards? I've setup an account with Loblaws to make it possible for me to purchase e-gift cards in bulk. They send me a spreadsheet with all of the codes and I enter them into a spreadsheet I've created that matches them up with people in my community who have reached out via my instagram asking to send gift cards to friends and family who are in a pinch during this rough patch.
How are people chosen? Until we can partner with an organization that will help identify specific households in need, I am functioning on absolute human faith that good people are reaching out for themselves or nominating friends in need to receive these cards. Good people exist, and if you're reading this far, you're probably one of them. So, thank you for being you.
