I *heart” MADD Canada

With Valentine’s Day just behind us, I gotta say I loved MADD Canada’s Valentine’s text to donate banner (now gone from their site but not forgotten)! It was very “Natalie” if you ask me. What do you think?

MADD Canada Valentine's Day

How cool is that?! You can text 45678 to donate $5 to MADD Canada. It’s such an easy way to offer your support and every little bit counts so I hope you’ll consider it.

This reminds me of Amber West’s #GoWithout Movement. Amber had the great idea that each week we could go without a little something to give back. She had some great text to donate charities and I added a few of my own to the list. I thought a recap might be nice:

You can find a pretty comprehensive list of other Canadian charities that accept text donations here. Or contact a local charity you love and drop off your $$$!

What are your thoughts on charities starting to use text to donate? Do you think the smaller amounts make it “easier” to donate? Or do you feel like your small donation wouldn’t “matter anyway, so why bother”? 

Two years ago, my beautiful mother-in-law’s life was cut tragically short by an impaired driver. In honor of Donna Jean Kennie, please don’t drink and drive. Impaired driving is 100% preventable. Think about it.
