How can you help?
We need your help to unlock the mystery of Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, so that all babies will be born without these serious and often life threatening health conditions. What can you contribute?
- TIME: Be a volunteer. Help out at one of our fundraising events, contribute to our newsletter, stuff envelopes… Let us know how you can contribute your time.
- SERVICE: Does your business provide a service that we could use? Printing of promotional materials, installation of wheelchair ramps, adaptation of bicycles…?
- DONATION: All cash donations will be gratefully accepted, and a charitable receipt will be issued to you for tax purposes. Please mail your cheques to our office.
If you have questions about what kind of contribution you can make, please contact us.
We are looking for volunteers to work at our upcoming casino in Calgary. The casino is our main avenue of fundraising, and without it we would not be able to offer funding programs to our members.
Each member that wants to access the SBHASA funding programs is required to complete volunteer hours — this is your chance to do yours. Joe Dzurilla will be contacting all members that have accessed funding during the past year to find casino volunteers. Please check your schedule and be ready to let Joe know when you can work.
It seems that the same members and their extended families have been doing the lion’s share of volunteering over the last few casinos. It is time for other members to step up to the plate and take some of the load off. If we do not have enough volunteers, we will lose our casino and subsequently will have to make cutbacks to our funding programs. We’re all counting on you! Please pitch in and do your part!
The SBHASA also has coin collection cans to be used for fundraising during the month of June, national Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Awareness Month. We are looking for members to place cans in local businesses.
Each can you place will count as 2 volunteer hours for your family. Members are required to complete 5 volunteer hours each year in order to be eligible for SBHASA funding programs.
If you are interested in taking part in this fundraiser, please contact Sherri by email.
