This year marks MAZON Canada’s 25th anniversary. Through much brainstorming an exciting new idea came about; a 25 for 25 campaign! Co-Chairs Janice Nathanson and Shelly Markel took up the torch and launched this first ever email campaign. Give25 was born.
What is Give25?
The goal of Give25 is to get as many people as possible engaged in the mitzvah by giving and then sending it on. The idea is to start with 25 people who then send it on to 25 people and each of those people send to an additional 25 people…you get the idea. The important factor of Give25 is to keep the chain going and spreading it far and wide.
Sounds easy? It is!
The campaign involves clicking on the Give25 link to make a donation of $25 or multiples of $25. Then it is forwarded to 25 (or more) friends, family and colleagues asking them to do the same. This campaign will be most successful if everyone spreads the word through the magic of email. As little as $25 does make a difference.
Here’s how the power of 25 will help the hungry:
1 x $25 = $25 – breakfast for 25 children
2 x $25 = $50 – breakfast for 50 children
3 x $25 = $75 – healthy snacks for 74 children
8 x $25 = $200 – 1 year of breakfasts for a child
16 x $25 = $400 – 1 month of food at a community centre serving the poor
25 x $25 = $625 – dinner for 78 people at an Out of the Cold program
36 x $25 = $900 – 1 week of food for 45 families
72 x $25 = $1800 – 90 families fed from a food bank
120 x $25 = $3000 – 3 months of food for 365 people
This is a very special way to support MAZON Canada, in honour of our 25th Anniversary
