The Canadian Wheelchair Foundation/ Fondation   

Chaise Roulante  Canada is an independent Canadian

With the support of our Canadian and international

we are transforming lives  throughout the world -- one wheelchair  at a time, a gift that extends hope, dignity, and freedom.

Partners in Transforming Lives Through Mobility

As a Friend of the Global Wheelchair Program we want to let you know about a unique initiative we are participating in this holiday season called GivingTuesday.

 

We are sharing information with you in this special edition newsletter in advance of the date, December 2nd. We hope you will find a way to contribute that is meaningful to you.

What is GivingTuesday?

On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

 

GivingTuesday was established in 2012 by the UN Foundation with the intent of encouraging people to take action around causes they are passionate about. The Tuesday that follows 'Black Friday' and 'Cyber Monday' was purposefully chosen to capture people's attention.

 

The  GivingTuesday movement celebrates and encourages charitable activities, volunteer opportunities and advocacy to

support non-�profit organizations. Please click here to learn more.

 

Doubling your money is always appealing and we are giving you the chance to do just that on December 2nd!

 

We are thrilled to announce that with the help of generous sponsors donations will be matched on GivingTuesday. All new online donations received on Tuesday, December 2nd will be matched, so for each dollar you donate, we will receive $2. We currently have commitments for up to $4,000, putting us very close to our goal of $5,000!

 

We hope you will take advantage of this once a year opportunity! 

We welcome your questions and ideas about GivingTuesday! Please contact us here.

 

Thank you for your interest in our work providing the gift of mobility to those who lack access to much needed wheelchairs around the globe!
