[HOT] SickKids - Gifts matched up to $500!

Deal Link:
Expiry:
December 31, 2020
This is a hot deal, although not your traditional one. There are two donation/gift matching programs for SickKids right now. It's been a bad year with COVID-19 and layoffs so while you're trying to find deals this weekend, consider buying a matched gift as well. There are kids and parents out there that could really use the lift.

The first one is from Kraft Canada:

Up until December 31, 2020, Kraft will match gifts donated to SickKids. You can donate through that program here.

The second matching program is from Samsung Canada through a collaboration with Ryan Reynolds (of Deadpool fame):

Up until December 24, 2020, Samsung will match gifts donated to SickKids. You can donate through that program here.

Don't forget you get a tax credit too! The federal is 15% up to $200, then 29% after that. Each province has their own rules and percentages.

If you down vote this, you have no soul. I hope no one ever has a child needing care at sick kids, but whether or not you can relate, I hope you have empathy to act.

Thanks for this OP. I'd give it a thousand thumb ups if I could

You donate in hopes that it goes towards treatment of sick kids, but there are some sick bosses too who need a paycheque too:*<
Article from 2009, but not sure what you are suggesting as there are bad apples everywhere. This is a program where you are buying a specific gift which is doubled. While I wouldn't know if the funds are being used inappropriately, at least in my heart I've done my part and living my values.

Thanks for quoting an 11 year old story. I dare you to find a charity that is perfect.

While your linked story admittedly looks awful on their part, I'll choose to believe it was an anomaly and funds are managed appropriately now.

Can you provide proof that funds are being used appropriately? I like facts, and by no means I’m discouraging individuals from donating, but people should be asking for transparency. I don’t want to see fancy commercials that cost thousands of dollars.

You can read about about their fiscal accountability and transparency here. If you want to donate, cool. If not, then that's fine too.

What's their total amount limit? Usually businesses are happy to offer matching donations but up to a certain total amount. Hopefully, it's quite high.

Please give the money to your local womens or homeless shelter or community kitchen/food bank. Our healthcare system is to be cherished despite all of its privatization but your personal dollars will go much, much further with a local charity free from executives and profiteering corporations inserted as middle-managers.

Any act of charity is a good thing, all good ideas including going local

100% this

Nothing against ops charity but I think it is almost always better to donate locally.

at 72% of money donated to SickKids goes towards their mission statement. Which isn't bad at all, compared to other charities.

How come hospitals rely so much on donations? Shouldn't the government provide the funding that is needed for them to operate and to maintain/improve their facilities?

They saved my 1 day old baby boy... i wish I could give more than I do. One of the best hospitals in the world. If you have a little extra this Christmas, consider donating to TSK. You really do make a difference.
