The Youth Philanthropy Council from the West Vancouver Foundation is adapting their #100YouthWhoCare Event which enlists youth from our local community to help us grant to local charities. Although we are unable to host this event in person for June, we are taking a different approach to grant funds through our ‘Charity of the Week.’
Over the next four weeks (April 27th-May 18th), we will post about a charity on our Instagram account @ypcwestvan. Each like on the post = $1 donation and because of our donors, 1 like = $4. Our goal is to have 250 likes per week; equivalent to a $1,000 donation.
The first week was extremely successful and we reached out goal on the first day, within hours. Nonetheless, we still need help and ongoing support on social media. We will donate to three more charities : The Harvest Project, the Northshore Crisis Services Centre, and the Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention of B.C.
Like @ypcwestvan ‘s posts and you are supporting initiatives which support other youth in need during COVID-19.
