For the month of June, Interval House of Ottawa will be participating in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge. This is a national public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to a registered charity in June via CanadaHelps.org or GivingChallenge.ca, automatically enters the charity to win an additional $10,000 donation! The grand prize draw is on Canada Day.
Originally created to save charities coast-to-coast from the summer-giving drought, the Great Canadian Giving Challenge has become an exciting way for charities to engage with their donors.
How Would $10,000 Help IHO?
Here's just a few of the many ways we could put a $10,000 donation to use:
Provide 389 hours of child & youth counselling
Provide over one year of daily counselling for a woman
Offer a woman 97 days of safe shelter, counselling, meals, and crisis support
Prepare 6,690 meals for our 30 residents
Operate IHO for 3.5 days
Purchase 6,720 lbs of dog food
Purchase 7,215 lbs of cat food
and so much more!
Support of any kind is much appreciated - whether it be by donating or simply sharing our message with your friends! Together, we can help women, children and pets escape violence together.
