Giving Tuesday "Cards-4-Care"
Home Hospice Association (HHA) proudly participates in
Giving Tuesday’s mission “to create a world where giving is part of everyday life.”
Help us increase access to holistic care, personalized support, and practical resources for people facing death and those who love them.
This year, the global “Giving Tuesday” is November 28, 2023.
We're collecting “Cards -4-Care” - gift card donations for restaurants, shops, and other products or services in the amount of $25, $50, $100 (or more) - that we'll be selling off for one day only!
On Giving Tuesday 2024*, anyone can purchase the gift cards, and all proceeds collected go towards making it possible for us to help ease the suffering of the dying in your community and those who love them.
*Please note: Due to insufficient card donations leading up to our fundraiser, we've had to postpone our sale until next year.
How our Giving Tuesday fundraiser works
Our Cards-4-Care fundraiser is the easiest way for you to support our work. Simply buy a gift card from our website for a business that you would already spend money at!
Because each gift card has been donated, HHA gets 100% of the funds from the card and you still get to use the full value of the cards you purchase.
Help HHA ease the suffering of our dying and those who love them by purchasing or donating a gift card today. It's that easy!

Help us reach our Giving Tuesday fundraising goal
Our goal is to fund 100 hours of care, which amounts to $4500.
Both gift card donations and purchases help us to meet our goal, allowing us to provide greater access to compassionate care and support across all of Canada.
If you're able, please donate today! We're incredibly grateful for your support! All donations are tax deductible, and businesses that donate gift cards will also be recognized on our website and get a shout out on our social media.
We accept card donations at any time throughout the year, but cards are only for sale on Giving Tuesday!
How we use the money raised
100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser go towards ensuring that HHA can continue to provide access to essential programs & services that directly benefit the 84% of people in Canada who do not have equitable access to quality and free end-of-life care.
Examples of how exactly your money helps:

$200.00 supports the Bello Project in re-homing one person's pet when the time comes if there isn't a family member able to take ownership
$200.00 sponsors a HOPP Family Day, giving children who are facing death, as well as their siblings and parents, the opportunity to have some fun together
$200.00 funds an “End of Life Care Comfort Kit” for those who are living out the end of their life in a setting (such as a shelter or prison) that presents a challenge for providing the basic comforts that are so helpful in the final months, weeks and days of life
$400.00 helps to offset travel costs for our team to visit with key stakeholders in order to establish programs, such as the Compassionate Caregiving Program, in a new community or with a new charity partner
