Our previous giving campaigns
2021 - Fundraising for women and children in need in Calgary and Edmonton
Cause to Smile was motivated to spread support and reach as far as possible in 2021, and our primary winter initiative accomplished just that. Through the generous support of donors, we raised nearly $50,000 in support of the Women's Emergency Outreach Centre in Edmonton, the Calgary Women's Emergency Shelter and the E4C School nutrition program focused on providing critical meals to food insecure school children.
2020 - Donation drive for CWES
In 2020 we were able to rally the community to donate both essential items and cash in support of CWES. Through this campaign, CTSF raised over $25,000, or enough funds to provide essential needs and shelter for 10 women and families fleeing dangerous domestic situations.
2020 - Canadian Blood Drive
Cause to Smile rallied dentists, patients and supporters in Alberta to show up and roll up their sleeves for the Canadian Blood Bank. All in, through our participation, enough blood was donated to save over 50 people in a life threatening condition.
It all counts
Whether it's during one of our seasonal fundraising drives, or any other time of year, Cause to Smile ensures that donations make it directly into the hands of those who need it most by donating to the organizations that support them.
In the past 2 years, we have raised more than $75,000 for amazing organizations including:
- Calgary Women's Energy Shelter
- Women's Emergency Accommodation Centre in Edmonton,
- E4C's school nutrition program
- Canadian Blood Services
- Momentum Calgary
- Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Calgary
