Be sure that you allocate your donation to the COVID-19 Response, and then screenshot a picture of your name and donation amount to my email at [email redacted]. That way, you will still get a tax receipt, the money will still go directly to the Foundation, and I can update our GoFundMe page with your amount donated and picture of the bags collected. PLS KEEP SHARING!!

My name is Gisella and on March 28th my father was admitted to Humber River Hospital’s ICU for COVID-19 related pneumonia. He was put on a ventilator and two weeks later, began daily dialysis because his kidneys had also shut down due to the virus. One month later, he is still in the ICU fighting for his life. The doctors, nurses and staff work day and night to support his life, while our family cannot be there to hold him.

I am starting this campaign to raise money to help the fight against COVID-19 and provide monetary support to the hospital for things like PPE, coffee and snacks for the nurses on night shifts, funds to help replenish all the sedation medications my father is using, etc. Whatever we can do to help!

The Story - the day before my father went to the hospital, I went on a walk with my mother on the Humber River Trail and we noticed a LOT of garbage. Understanding spring only just arrived and public works will probably get to it eventually, I still decided I wanted to do something about it. So the next morning, I went to the dollar store and picked up a grabber device (thanks to D for the tip!) and some recycling bags. I was determined to start cleaning up the trail on my walks moving forward. However, that idea got cut short that same evening when I found my dad at his home really sick and barely breathing.
~
So, The Campaign - since I still want to follow through with my cleanup idea, for every $100 reached in donations to the Humber River Hospital Foundation for COVID-19, I will fill up a bag full of garbage picked up from the Humber River Trail. That way, not only will YOU be helping the hospital, but I will be beautifying the trail for when we can all enjoy it after this pandemic is over :) If public works ends up getting to more areas before me, I will find other public spaces to clean up... while maintaining physical distancing of course :)
~
The amount of areas I can clean up are contingent on the amount of donations to the hospital, so help me help you help Humber River Hospital! Let’s get through this together, stay safe!!!
