Canadian Tire JumStart charity has chosen the ZipGive Text to Donate program to assist in its fundraising efforts. 1 n 3 Canadian families cannot afford to have their children in sport and recreation activities due to financial barriers, which means that these kids are missing out. The Canadian Tire Jumpstart charity is dedicated to removing these barriers, so kids can participate in organized sports and recreation.
Participation in organized sports and recreation increases a child's chance for success in life - they discover and participate, gain self-confidence, develop self-esteem, learn leadership skills, and their lives become richer. This is Canadian Tire Jumpstart which is a national charitable program that helps to cover registration, equipment and/or transportation costs. There are more than 300 local chapters, made up of volunteers committed to helping get kids active and healthy. Working in partnership with other local non-profit organizations to discreetly identify kids with the greatest need in their communit, Canadian Tire Jumpstart then covers registration, equipment and/or transportation costs to help them participate in a sport or recreational activity of their choice. Since launch in 2005, Canadian Tire Jumpstart has given 300,000 kids across Canada the chance to play.
ZipGive is pleased that the Canadian Tire Jumpstart charity has chosen ZipGive's Text to Give platform to support the charity's mobile giving donations and donor outreach campaigns.
