Big Brothers Big Sisters has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and is finding new ways to fundraise in 2021.
With that, the organization has launched its ‘Small Act BIG Impact’ campaign.
“Servus Credit Union has been a long-time supporter of BBBS and we feel very privileged to have their support in such a strong way this year, especially given the current circumstances,”
“In these challenging times, children and families are struggling to cope, understand, and deal with mental health issues,” said Rob Lewis, executive director of Youth HQ. “Every child deserves the chance to exceed beyond the circumstances that surround them. Every child needs someone to look up to. “Invest in a child, Invest in a future.”
The campaign is an online crowdfunding initiative that will run until April 30 with a fundraising goal of $50,000.
The strength of a crowdfunding campaign is dependent upon the social engagement reach of all our supporters through their contacts, such as email and social media platforms. As an incentive to donors to make their donation go further, Servus Credit Union is matching all donations, up to a maximum of $20,000.
Donations can be made at visiting www.youthhq.ca or go directly to the campaign at give.charityvillage.com/bbbsreddeer. Donations can also be dropped off directly at Youth HQ/Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer.
