$1 = $10,000
Yes, that is correct! Each $1 donated will help TRAS win a $10,000 donation through The Great Canadian Giving Challenge sponsored by CanadaHelps and the GIV3 Foundation.
How does it work?
Every $1 you donate to TRAS through CanadaHelps in June earns TRAS a chance to win a $10,000 donation ($3 minimum donation gives 3 chances to win).
If we are the charity lucky enough to win the challenge the $10,000 will go to very good use.
The 500 children at Munsel-ling School in the remote Spiti Valley in northern India are receiving a good education, thanks to TRAS members’ support. But their cleanliness is another story. The children wash themselves and the clothes they are wearing by soaping themselves and standing in a murky grey water pond or in one of the irrigation channels leading from it to nearby farmers’ fields. The results are poorly washed clothes, skin diseases and soapy water ruining the crops.
TRAS has promised to build a large water storage tank to collect clean spring water, 2 simple outdoor laundry stations (one for the girls, one for the boys) and a soak pit to remove the soap residue from the water before it reaches the farmers’ fields.
Results: cleaner clothes, healthier children, happier farmers! Will YOU help make this happen?
Make your donation to TRAS during the month of June via Canada Helps – and help give TRAS a chance to win $10,000 from the Great Canadian Challenge! Every dollar you donate = 1 vote for TRAS in the draw for the winner.
