Virtual Canvass

This year, Heart & Stroke canvassing will look a little different, but the goal is the same - to save lives. Now’s your chance to connect with your community in a new way, and share lifesaving information. Together, we can beat heart disease and stroke.

An easy way to make a bigger impact

When you fundraise online, more of that money goes directly to research — and that means more lives saved. Payments can be accepted by credit card, and tax receipts are issued immediately. You can make a big difference with the device you’re using right now!

Heart disease, stroke and related conditions take a life in Canada every five minutes. And the need to treat these diseases is more urgent than ever people with these conditions are at higher risk for complications, and death, if they contract COVID-19. That’s why I’m raising money with Heart & Stroke, whose cause is so important to me [because personal reason, if applicable].

As well, in February, which is Heart Month, Canada Pacific Railway will match your donation (up to $100,000). Now’s your chance to double the impact of your donation!

Together, we’ll beat heart disease and stroke. Will you help me with a donation?

LinkedIn #1: Starting Out

This month, I’m supporting Heart & Stroke [because personal reason, if applicable]. I was surprised to learn that in Canada, one person dies every 5 minutes from heart disease, stroke or vascular cognitive impairment. And that people with these conditions are at higher risk for complications, and death, if they contract COVID-19. But we can help save lives. Please donate to my fundraiser to help fund the next research breakthrough. In February, Canada Pacific Railway will match your donation (up to $100,000), DOUBLING your impact! Together, we’ll beat heart disease and stroke. [insert personal fundraising page link].

LinkedIn #2: Goal Update
