Torontonians looking to donate,but don’t have the cash to do it
Posted On August 6, 2021
TORONTO — It’s time to make a change.
It’s just not right.
The number of Canadians who donate to charities is on the rise.
In 2017, more than 1.7 million Canadians donated $1.3 billion, a 20 per cent increase from the previous year.
But there’s a catch.
There are no guarantees Canadians will see their donations going to the cause that matters most to them.
“People don’t know how long it will take, or that the charities are going to be there when they need them,” said Charla Davenport, CEO of the Good Charity Shop in Torontos biggest shopping mall.
That’s why we’ve been collecting donations for charity since 2006.
We have so many people who have been donating to us over the years, but don’t realize it.
For Davenports charity, the Good Shop’s “good charity” category has been a hit.
The charity, which specializes in helping homeless people and people with physical disabilities, has collected more than $1 million for over two decades.
But donations are not guaranteed.
And even though charities like the Good Samaritans, the Salvation Army and other organizations have a strong track record, many of those programs aren’t funded by the government.
As a result, charities can only make a dollar contribution.
Davenport says that, with a $20 donation, she’ll be able to provide food, clothing and other essentials for an average family.
Not only does it save the charity money, but it’s also a good way to support local charities.
With a little bit of planning and the right person, they can help the people in need, she said.
At the Good Store, volunteers donate all of their donations to the charity they choose.
Volunteers donate to a charity by entering their details in the box and clicking “Donate Now.”
The Good Charity Store collects donations from people around the world, including from people in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Donations are deposited in a bank account or electronically deposited in your bank account.
The donation is then mailed to the recipient.
We have volunteers from all over the world helping in various ways to support charities in Canada.
It’s a great way to show that you care.
We’re not asking for a donation, but we want to give back.
