Christmas Cheer Fundraiser
Welcome to our Christmas Cheer Virtual Fundraiser!
This year we are taking our Christmas Cheer fundraising virtual! Due to pandemic restrictions, we aren't able to fundraise through bake sales, candy cane sales, High School Christmas banquet and pancake breakfast as we have in past years. However, we still want to bless those who are in need during this holiday season—and also have fun doing it!
From December 1st to 18th, we are inviting RCS families to participate in our Christmas Cheer Fundraiser via our Virtual Christmas Tree.
Here’s how it works:
- Make a donation towards our Christmas Cheer Fundraiser by completing the form here.
- Choose whether you'd like to make your donation 'In Memory', 'In Honour', or 'On Behalf' of a loved one; Or, simply select the 'Donated by' option to fill in your family name.
- Be sure to complete the message you would like to have added to your virtual Christmas Tree ornament. If you would like to have multiple ornaments added, please make a minimum $20 donation for each additional ornament and fill out a separate Christmas Cheer Donation Form for each. E-transfers can be combined into ONE transaction.
- Choose the colour of your ornament.
- Complete the e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org. Record "Christmas Cheer" in the message field. Once we have received your donation, we will add your ornament to our tree! Please allow 1 to 2 days for processing time.
All donations of $20 or more will be issued a charitable tax receipt.
HOW CAN I VIEW MY DONATION AND THE DONATIONS OF OTHERS?
To view the donations, simply click on an ornament on our Virtual Christmas Tree. A new page will then pop up displaying the acknowledgment of the donor, and/or the name of who the heartfelt donation was made on behalf of.
Who Benefits from Our Generosity?
Our funds this year will support families in our own community, Good News Chapel, Souls Harbour Rescue Mission, and families in Kitchener School. Any funds over $5000.00 will go to Impact Ministries to be used for Hurricane ETA relief in Guatemala. Please click on the gifts under the tree, and other items to learn more about where our funds are going and how they will directly impact the needs of those in our community and Guatemala. The high school SLC has planned fun activities to thank everyone for their generosity in giving to our Christmas Cheer fundraising. We also recognize this will be a difficult Christmas for many due to the pandemic and want to lift spirits this Christmas season. Please see the Days of Christmas attachments for dates and details.
