2020 is a milestone year for the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton! This year marks 80 years of promoting the spirit of holiday caring and sharing in our city. We do this by providing a festive meal and coordinating holiday giving to Edmontonians in need.
2020 is also the 20th Anniversary of Canada Helps. To celebrate, they are increasing the grand prize for the Great Canadian Giving Challenge from $10,000 to $20,000!
What is the Great Canadian Giving Challenge? It is a National public contest, whereby for every dollar you donate to our charity in June, we get one entry into a draw to win $20,000!
So, what could the Christmas Bureau do with $20,000? We could help bring joy into the homes by-way of a nutritious, festive meal to:
- 1,334 children, or
- 667 seniors, or
- 200 families of five….that’s 1,000 people.
Thank you for supporting us through the Great Canadian Challenge and for your generous support. Together, we can ensure that no one has an empty plate this holiday season.
