Spring has sprung! That also always means time to refresh and renew. Almost everyone engages in a good spring clean of their house (or it is recommended!) during this time of year. What better time to declutter those junk drawers (we all have one!), and donate those gift cards with some spare change on them? Every dollar and cent helps. You can send the giftcards via Canada Post, drop them in one of our dropboxes (check insta for current locations) or reach out to a re:give team member directly to coordinate a pickup.

This quarter we decided to highlight a local Calgary Charity – Made by Momma, to spread the word about their mission and connect our community. Helping others understand where the need is and what the need is within our community is at the core of what re:give does. We also spent time consolidating some existing cards, and creating a bit of friendly competition to top-up our cards to donate to Made by Momma. From this campaign, which took place over March, re:give consolidated $341.45 worth in donated gift cards. Thanks to generous donations, we then raised a combined total of $409.19 to top up the existing gift cards. Then to make it a nice even number, re:give rounded up each card by donating an additional $14.36. Through out March, re:give was able to raise awareness of the Made By Momma cause, and donate $765!
So what do our next steps look like? We are looking to partner with some great Calgary business to raise funds to top up gift cards! Keep your eyes trained on our Instagram feed for updates!
