I want to get the message out about a Colon Cancer Canada fundraising initiative that's going on right now.
It's called Top To Bottom
and is spearheaded by 40 oncologists, surgeons and cancer researchers in Calgary, London, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver and Winnipeg. Their goal is to raise $750K to support initiatives in local colon cancer communities. To date, the campaign has raised close to $512K.
There are some great incentives to giving.
75% of the net funds raised stays in the community that raised it. Your area cancer team will use the funds to support their projects in your community.
There are some great rewards. For example, each contribution of $250 gets you a $50 gift card for the participating restaurant of your choice plus a $200 tax receipt. A donation of $500 gets you two gift cards and a tax receipt for $400. And so on. If you want, you can choose to forego the gift card and get a tax receipt for the whole amount. There are also options for making a corporate contribution.
So Canucks, click the link for the Top to Bottom website and then click on the community/team/doctor of your choice to make a donation. Credit card and Paypal options are available.http://ccctoptobottom.ca/
All of these doctors are passionate about putting an end to colon cancer. They deserve our support.
In my case, I am going to line up with the Ottawa team. Now I have to decide which of the excellent participating restaurants to choose - Rare, Salt, or Fresco. What a dilemma!
Thanks for reading this, thanks in advance for responding, and Merry Christmas!
