It’s that time of the year again – you’ve filed your taxes and, if you’re lucky, your refund is on the way. As you ponder how to spend it, we’d like to remind you of a great investment opportunity: CARE Canada.
This year we encourage you to use a portion of your tax return as a donation to CARE Canada. Your donation will help women, girls and their families lift themselves out of poverty.
The CARE gift catalogue has donation opportunities that can have a powerful return on the lives of people all over the world.
Your investment of $30 can provide a group of women who graduate from a vocational training class with business start-up materials.
Your investment of $50 can send a child to school for a year.
Your investment of $190 can provide a bicycle for a community volunteer who often travels long distances to remote areas to assist communities.
Check out more investment ideas on the CARE Gift Catalogue! And don’t forget – when you spend a portion of your refund on CARE Canada, you’ll receive a tax receipt for next year’s return!
