Can you feel that chill in the air? Snow is beginning to fall everywhere… And it’s the season to show just how much you care!
Tuesday, November 28, is #GivingTuesdayCA, as well as the kickoff day for OneWalk’s Operation: Holly Jolly! This festive contest is a chance for Walkers to boost both their fundraising tallies and invite others to Walk with them through fun donation and referral challenges, and here’s how can you get in on all this holiday cheer…
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
Over the next few weeks, we are issuing out a challenge to all Walkers to complete four tasks, and with each task you fulfill, a mystery holiday badge will be unlocked on your Personal Page. Carry out all four challenges—in any order—between now and Wednesday, December 20, at 11:59 p.m., and you will successfully complete Operation: Holly Jolly!
And for your hard work, holly jolly rewards will be had! Each completed task will also give you one entry into our holiday basket giveaway. Should you be the lucky winner of Operation: Holly Jolly, you will receive a gift basket filled with delicious gourmet items courtesy of Vincenzo’s.
HOLLY JOLLY TASKS
- Raise $150. OneWalk is just nine short months away! While you may have all things holidays on your mind right now, it’s also the perfect time to kick-start your event fundraising. How to easily raise that amount? Just ask your friends or family members to donate to your OneWalk in lieu of a holiday gift. Come New Year, you could already be well on your way to achieving or surpassing your goal!
- Update your Personal Page. Sharing why you joined OneWalk is a way to invest others in your quest to conquer cancer in our lifetime and increase your fundraising tally. During the holidays, you can also use your Personal Page to thank the people in your life for the donations they’ve given. Already have a customized Personal Page? Just upload a holiday-themed picture to fulfill this task!
- Make a self-donation. Who said that holiday gifts have to come from other people? By self-donating to your OneWalk, you will show everyone you know just how committed you are to our cause and incentivize them to follow your lead. Plus, a donation to yourself is really the gift that keeps on giving, as every little bit supports research and treatment at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
- Refer a friend. The holidays often mean time spent with loved ones, but what about the rest of the year? OneWalk offers the perfect chance to ask that co-worker, cousin, childhood friend or other favourite person to be at your side in September. Not only will you have opportunities for bonding time as you train, but also you’ll be making amazing memories together during event weekend!
Operation: Holly Jolly is a challenge to both enjoy the holidays and get us closer to our goal to conquer cancer, so join us this December for some seriously festive fun!
