Fundraising Management
Turning Goals into Triumphs!

CharityWishList Screenshot_edited.jpg

Mission – Making it easier and quicker to give stuff away to Canadian Registered Charities near you.

To enable people across Canada to quickly and easily find, and self-connect, to a variety of Canadian Registered Charities near them that have WishLists containing the type of item(s) that the person in that moment wants to give away, to the benefit of our society and environment.

To maintain and grow so that more cities and Canadian Registered Charities in Canada are included.

New to cause marketing?

There could be charities out there that would be a good match for you to partner with! For example, I paired the Ottawa Bra Clinic, with the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. I helped navigate the introductions and paperwork.


Pop-up Banner e.g.:

Note that the logo is strategically placed so it will be included in photos of people standing next to it. If it had been placed at the very top, then it would have been well above the height of the average person.
