YOU, Taking New Steps to Fundraise

In Uncategorized on October 16, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Every October, volunteer canvassers hit the streets to raise money for our annual Door to Door campaign. Equipped with their canvassing kits, route map and enthusiasm to help our cause these volunteers make the time to help others.

Along  with visiting friends and neighbours in the community, our volunteers have found a new way to fundraise  this year. It’s called e-canvassing.

E-canvassing is simply fundraising online by sending emails to friends,  family and supporters asking them for donations. It’s great for someone who is unable to canvass in their community or for those who want to try a new way of communicating with their donors.

The Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia makes it easy for canvassers to start raising money online.  As a canvasser, YOU can sign up and create your own fundraising page. Then, people will be able to search you by name and make a donation to your personal page. To visit the fundraising page for canvassers, click here 

“We have seen an increase in funds raised online compared to last year,” says Michele Charlton, Door to Door Coordinator. “It’s great to see our volunteers trying new things like e-canvassing.”

The Door to Door campaign is aimed at raising funds in search of the causes, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. The campaign runs throughout  October and there are many volunteers who help in different communities across the province.

If YOU are interested in becoming a Door to Door volunteer, please contact Michele Charlton at 902 422-7961. Or, YOU can always make a donation by visiting  the website

Thank YOU to all of our Door to Door canvassers for your passion to help those living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. YOU are making a difference in your community, while helping to raise awareness about the many programs and services available for families.
