Give With Target Campaign: Thank You for Helping Kids!

Back in November, Target launched the Give With Target Campaign, where up to $1 million would be donated to select Canadian charities – including YMCA! The social media campaign asked Canadians to vote for a cause through Facebook. In less than three days, voters helped YMCA Canada receive a whopping $325,000, and YMCA Calgary received a total of $11,908.05!  Thanks to you, YMCA is able to raise awareness for active play and use the donations raised towards YMCA Strong Kids, to allow children and youth to belong, grow, thrive, and lead.

Thank you for voting with the Give with Target campaign and helping kids and youth have more opportunities to lead healthy and active lives. Because of you, we can help reduce barriers to access so more children and teens will be able to access YMCA programs and engage in active play. Thanks to you, more children and teens will have a positive and safe haven where they can realize the benefits of active play.

Congratulations to all of the charities who participated in the Give with Target campaign.
