Envirotech’s Giving Tuesday: The Kids Help Phone Christmas Challenge
Kids’ problems don’t take holidays. That’s why Kids Help Phone is always open. No matter where kids are, what time it is, or what concerns they have, Kids’ Help Phone is there to give them anonymous and confidential advice — even during the holidays.
This year, Envirotech joined the Kids Help Phone Giving Tuesday Corporate Challenge. Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday following Black Friday and CyberMonday and was on November 29th in 2016.
Envirotech and Kids Help Phone’s other 4700 corporate partners and supporters raised $40,000 through the challenge. The money will deliver 200 hours of counselling for youth over the holiday season.
Envirotech held a company-wide coin toss while our production team held an on-shift BBQ on the weekend before Giving Tuesday. The team then took up a collection on yet another day. We also had a raffle and bake sale to maximize participation. You might say Envirotech made Giving Tuesday a week-long celebration of the wonderful work Kids Help Phone does for young people across Canada.
With the money raised from the staff fundraisers, plus a company donation, Envirotech raised $1,000.00.
“This year you enabled 150,000 connections with youth via telephone and live chat. Thank you!” – Malinda DenBok | Manager, Corporate Development for Kids Help Phone
