We're so glad you want to support people seeking refuge, simply by doing your regular everyday shopping!
When you get gift cards from our program, you get the full value of the gift cards you select, AND, without paying any extra money, you also make a donation to support people seeking refuge!
Here's how it works: (using an example of a $100 grocery store gift card)
-Click on the "Support Now" button, set up a profile, and choose a $100 gift card for your favourite grocery store.
-You receive your $100 gift card in the mail, and spend it, just like you would any gift card.
-Your purchase triggers a $3 donation to the Heyd Refuge Fund - a fund set up at the Toronto Foundation specifically for helping people seeking refuge!
There are many retailers to choose from besides grocery stores. In fact, there are over 175 retailers! Some cards result in a donation of 10% of the card value. Amazing! You spend $100 to get a $100 gift card AND you make a donation of $10! Some cards offer even bigger donations!
In addition to everyday purchases, we hope you'll remember to shop with gift cards for holidays and special occasions, too, as there are SO many great retailers to choose from, and every time you shop with these gift cards, you support refuge seekers.
How much could you contribute to support people seeking refuge by shopping with gift cards?
If you purchase $350 to $700 per month of gas and groceries, and you use this program each month for a year, you'd be making a donation of $114-$228 per year to support refuge seekers - just by shopping like you normally would, and choosing to pay with gift cards!
If supporting refuge seekers means a lot to you, please tell your family and friends about this program.
Together, just 50 people doing their everyday shopping can raise between $5,700 and $11,400 in just one year! That's significant! (see calculation at the website linked below.)
Thank you for caring - and for your decision to ShopForRefuge!
