CLICK needs your help to reach our 2013 fundraising goal of $75,000. When you help CLICK you’re making a direct difference in the lives of children and youth living in poverty – and that makes Vancouver a better city for all of us. You can DONATE TODAY by clicking the button at the top of the page or by holding a Fun-Raiser for CLICK. It’s easy! If you’re hosting an event or party – wine and cheese, Christmas party at home or at the office – why not use it as an opportunity to raise funds for kids at risk in Vancouver?
Putting the FUN into Fundraising!
What’s a CLICK Fun-Raiser?
If you’re already planning a party or event, why not also raise money for kids in need? A CLICK Fun-Raiser can be any event, at any venue, where guests are invited to make a donation to CLICK to support programs for inner city kids in Vancouver. Plan a special event just for CLICK, or collect donations at your birthday party, Halloween bash, wine and cheese event or retirement celebration.
Instead of a Secret Santa at your office Christmas party, why not invite your colleagues to donate $10 each to CLICK?
How CLICK will Support your Fun-Raiser
CLICK will support your Fun-Raiser in a number of ways:
• We’ll give you CLICK brochures and newsletters, with information on child poverty
in Vancouver – and how CLICK helps these kids through a variety of programs.
• We’ll provide you with a CLICK donation box.
• We’ll provide special CLICK “blue kid”
stickers for your guests to wear, showing they have supported Vancouver’s inner city kids (the “blue kid” forms the “K” in the CLICK logo).
• You have the option of having a CLICK board member attend your event to speak about the importance of helping Vancouver’s at-risk kids, and how CLICK-supported
programs make a difference.
• You also have the option of presenting a slide show at your event, showing guests some of the programs supported by CLICK so they can see where their donations go.
Why We Need You
Behind the beautiful scenery and affluence of our province is a troubling reality: BC has the second highest child poverty rate in Canada and the highest poverty rate for children under 5 years old. Thousands of children and youth in Vancouver go to school hungry and lack other basics in life, like childcare, healthy meals and safe after-school programs. These same kids also face huge barriers to learning the skills and having the opportunities that could lead them out of poverty. CLICK’s volunteer board is working hard to reach our 2013 goal of $75,000. Please help us help Vancouver’s inner city kids.
Where Funds Go
All CLICK-supported programs fall into three categories: safety, skills and access. Within that framework, CLICK provides funding to non-profit organizations that offer food security and out-of-school care, literacy programs, arts and music programs and sports and recreational activities. Many of CLICK’s board of directors have years of experience working with inner city kids, and because we are entirely volunteer-run, your contributions will go directly to the programs.
