It feels good to make a difference in the lives of those in need. This September, the Canadian Red Cross wants to make it feel even better for you.
If you make a donation online this month, you will earn 100 Aeroplan Miles® or 100 SCENE® points for every $5 you give to the Canadian Red Cross.
Nobody expects to find themselves in an emergency. But when the unexpected happens, the Canadian Red Cross is there to provide emergency food, shelter and support.
As Canada’s largest humanitarian organization, the Red Cross is there when communities flood and forests catch fire. It’s there when hurricanes touch down and earthquakes tremor. It’s there with basic necessities, food, and shelter, lending a helping hand — no questions asked.
It’s there because of Canadians like you.
That’s why from Sept 1-30, they have a can’t-miss offer to say thank you to all generous donors.
The work the Canadian Red Cross does in Canada and around the world would not be possible without help from the countless Canadians who donate every day. And to keep being there when needed most, the Canadian Red Cross needs your help.
Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway, the trip of a lifetime or a night at the movies, this limited-time offer is the quickest way to earn valuable rewards points while helping people in need. People like Jody Anne McDonald, whose home was flooded by the overflowing Petawawa River. When mould made her house unliveable, the Canadian Red Cross made repairing it possible.
“Walking up the steps to the Red Cross reception centre as a flood victim was a humbling experience. But the volunteers made me feel like a flood survivor. I left there knowing I was going to be just fine,” said Jody Anne.
Your donation can be the difference for someone experiencing an emergency. It can mean food, shelter, clothing, and comfort. And in September, you can feel doubly good knowing that your contribution doesn’t just mean warm blankets and life-saving vaccinations; it means family movie nights and unforgettable vacations.
In September, every dollar you give gets you free movies faster or flying sooner. When you give $100, you will earn 2,000 Aeroplan® Miles or 2,000 SCENE® points—enough for a FREE Enhanced Movie Ticket or to bring you one step closer to making your dream vacation a reality.
