"Celebration of Life"
Our New Annual Fundraiser
On September 19, 2013, at the Annual General Meeting, we voted to have a mail-in fundraiser
this fall. We have called it "Celebration of Life." This is our solution to the conflict
experienced in using the phrase, "Walk for Life" for our former annual walk/fundraiser.
We would like to ask you to please come up with ways YOU can raise money on your own or in
a group with friends or family. Please do not use "Walk" in naming any of your activities.
Please mail-in your donations by December 27, 2013 to the following address:
members and non-members get together and work for our cause. This could be educational and
bring awareness to others who may not know about us. Think of watching the Empty Stocking
Fund and how they ask, "Now how did you raise this money?"
A few ideas that come to mind:
movie night with friends at home
helped a neighbour
Maybe you could solicit pledges and stroll around Uptown! That would be great!
donations over $10.00 will get a tax receipt at the end of the year
to record the Name and Full Address of all donors or new volunteers
If possible, please send a photo and description of your fundraiser!! Perhaps we will use some
or all submissions for advertising!
If you need anything from the Respect for Life Education Centre (i.e., DVD, poster, book-markers),
please just let us know.
Let's work together in fresh new ways to raise the funds to carry on our important mission of
education! I look forward to the outcome of our new endeavours!
