The Great Canadian Giving Challenge has had another GREAT year!
For a fourth year in a row, CanadaHelps, along with our partners at GIV3, challenged Canadians to give their favourite Canadian charity the chance to win a $10,000 donation from the Great Canadian Giving Challenge. How it works is simple. Every $1 donated on CanadaHelps.org or GivingChallenge.ca in June enters their chosen charity to win the $10,000 grand prize that is randomly drawn on July 1st, Canada Day!
From coast to coast, Canadians gave generously making the 2018 Great Canadian Giving Challenge our best year yet! Charities across the country rose to the challenge all month long to encourage their supporters to donate. They launched special campaigns, sent emails, shared, and tweeted to compete. The competition was fierce!
And The Winner Is…
On Canada Day, we drew this year’s winner and contacted them to share the exciting news. Congratulations to Truth For Teens for winning the 2018 Great Canadian Giving Challenge! Learn more about their charity and the work they do on their Charity Profile Page, and hear what Heather Osborne from Truth For Teens had to say about the great surprise:
“Truth for Teens is a grassroots program for youth who often aren’t successful in traditional programs. It is so exciting to be blessed with this gift as it will go directly into youth programming!” — Heather Osborne
For other charities across Canada, June marked another great year as Canadians gave generously to the causes they care about. Check out our amazing results below:
