#ChipinforKids Text to Donate Campaign

Canadians on any mobile operator can text KIDS to 30333 to donate $10 to the Shaw Charity Classic Foundation between July 13 and August 30.

Shaw will match every donation made on a dollar-for-dollar basis, up to a total of $150,000. In addition, donations made directly to Shaw Birdies for Kids-participating charities will be matched again by the Shaw Charity Classic — up to an additional 50 percent of the Shaw-matched donation. It means that an individual donation of $10 can grow into a donation of $30 to participating charities.
The donations and matched contributions raised through #ChipinforKids will help ensure that more than 200 Alberta charities that have been strained by COVID-19 will be able to continue their work in our communities.
