Big fan of the theatre but what is this? I don't get it. Is it a real show, some sort of gift box or are they just asking for a donation?

This is the stupid idea of someone who overvalued their sense of humor

Looks like just a humorous way to donate. You do get a tax receipt

The Stay At Home Show tickets make brilliant and appropriate souvenirs of these unprecedented times. Buy one for your scrap book or to frame and hang on your wall of mementos. They are amazing gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, any occasion.

Each ticket comes with a tax receipt for the full ticket price.



Quantities are limited. A charitable tax receipt from The AFC will be emailed shortly after your donation is made. Your souvenir ticket(s) will be mailed to you the old-fashioned way within five business days by Mirvish Productions. Donation deadline: May 15, 2021. Souvenir tickets have no cash value and cannot be returned, exchanged, refunded or re-sold.

The least they could do is have a photo of what you're actually getting on the damn page.

If this is literally just a printed Mirvish ticket with half-baked copy then meh.
They could have at least created a framed ticket memento or something and charged $25...I'm sure plenty of souvenir people would buy

Damnit, RFD, you guys have ruined my look on things and made me a cynic. I would have happily donated money to Mirvish through this half-baked fund raising attempt because I've been going to see productions since I was a little kid thanks to my parents and now my wife and I go and see every show that comes out in Toronto as well and I want to see them survive this pandemic in a healthy way and continue adding culture to our city.

But after reading all the comments above, it's making me feel like they are half-assing it too much and don't deserve my donation...

I'd update the title to be more transparent that this is a link to donate to a Not-for-profit organization.

"Tickets to The Stay At Home Show are only $10 each. There are no taxes, no service charges, no other fees whatsoever.



But if you’re looking for a richer experience, choose our Premium package. It’s the same as the regular ticket but more expensive. At only $100 per ticket, it’s a bargain at double the cost."

umm....

It's just a charitable ask, don't know why people are getting riled up about it.

In order to qualify for a receipt, incentives would have to be nominal or else it would be deducted from the gift itself. Also it is a fundraiser for AFC, so it doesn't benefit Mirvish (unless I missed something)

It's not that it's a charitable ask that I'm annoyed at. It's that it's not very clear as to what it's about or what you're getting. I browsed through it and I thought it was a live stream of a show initially. Then I realized it is a charitable thing which is fine but there's also a ticket component? So what does the ticket look like?

Been a Mirvish subscriber for years and just because it's a charitable thing doesn't mean it can't be done better.

This is dumb. I'm all for amusing ways to get people to donate. But with this they make it sound like it's a live stream of a show. And then it turns out you get nothing. People are going to buy the premium "ticket" without reading carefully and thinking they're getting a 3 course meal box delivered and a live streamed show.

What's the point of tricking people into donating money? Just be upfront. Downvote

I mean, I think the wording is pretty obvious that you're donating money, but you probably do have a point. People can be dumb and generally don't read the fine print (or in this case, the regular print).

poor OP got your downvote. devastating!!!

When I saw the email, I thought maybe there's some show....instead this is what?

HONEST ED (father) would not be amused with this. This deal is "for the birds"
