The gift of giving

The advantages of donating

In addition to it being a generous gesture and the joy it brings to the people that are receiving, there are several other benefits to give your things rather than throwing them away or selling them. You give items that are still usable a second life in which they can be enjoyed all over again. You’re also helping to reduce your environmental footprint by recycling and so much more.

Practical tips
  • To avoid surprises, always check the Fraud Centre of Canada and the list of charitable organizations to make sure your donations are really going to an accredited organization.
  • Donation can give you the right to provincial and federal tax credits.
  • We always feel more generous around the Holidays. Don’t forget that people who are sick or in need exist all year long and can benefit from your help at anytime!
