I love good fundraising campaigns. I especially love when those campaigns match your donation dollar for dollar. That’s one powerful incentive to give.
In honour of Mother’s Day, The Children’s Aid Foundation and the Ignite the Spark are fundraising for a campaign to bring extracurricular activities to children in need. The wonderful thing about this programme is that they commit to a minimum three-year enrolment so that the children have a good, solid chunk of time in which to explore their chosen activities. It is a guarantee of continuity in lives that often lack that most basic ingredient. If you make a donation before May 12, your dollars will be matched. Have a good weekend, all.
