It’s ice cream time! One is high in calories; one is zero. Take your pick. Both will raise money for Save The Children Canada. Appliance brand Frigidaire has pledged to donate a maximum of $25,000 via its Sundae Funday initiative. It’s part of the company’s commitment to donate $100,000 to the charity this year, specifically to better the lives of Aboriginal children in Canada.
Until July 16, people can go the site, www.sundaefunday.ca, and build a virtual sundae. For each online sundae made, Frigidaire will give $1 to Save the Children Canada. It takes less than a minute. Simply choose a glass, scoop the ice cream, pick the sauce, add the topping and name sundae (mine was Bliss Carnival).
If that suddenly gives you an ice cream craving, Frigidaire is also challenging families to host their own Sundae Funday fundraising event for Save The Children Canada. Under “party kit,” the section provides invitations, shopping list, sundae recipes, decorating ideas, colouring pages and step-by-step instructions. They suggest a donation of $5 for every sundae with a goal to raise $150 and there is also a donation tracking sheet on the site.
Funds raised can be donated directly to Save the Children Canada following the party (online or by mail). Through the website, one can also learn about the initiatives carried out by the organization, while simultaneously teaching kids about giving back.
