Winter fundraising in partnership with our community.

About The Program

Looking to help raise money for your school or organisation this winter season? Registration for our Gift Card Fundraising is now open! We are accepting participants until December 4th and gift cards will be available for pickup from November to December.

If you have participated in our fundraising program in the past, this year will be a little different due to the pandemic. Rather than our usual range of holiday arrangements, we will only be offering our Gift Card program at this time due to product shortages and our aim to reduce potential contact transmission through deliveries.

However, the program will still function similarly as before! For each gift card sold, a portion of the cost will go towards your organisation’s fundraising efforts. For program details and benefits, please get in touch with us and we'll send along the fundraising packet with more information.
