Chip in for Kids and turn your $10 donation into $30!

Chip in for Kids and turn your $10 donation into $30!

The Shaw Charity Classic has unfortunately been cancelled this year, but Shaw is committed to continuing the tournament’s legacy of giving. They have generously launched a text-to-donate matching campaign – Chip in for Kids!

Chip in for Kids today by texting KIDS084 to 30333 and help us support teens in distress through our ConnecTeen program. Shaw will match your donation and the matched donation will then be matched again by the Shaw Charity Classic up to an additional 50%. Your $10 can grow into a donation of $30 to Distress Centre!

You can also still donate to Distress Centre through Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink (BFK). BFK is a fundraising program designed to give charities the opportunity to solicit donations and receive additional funding of up to 50%. Participating charities will receive 100% of every donation collected on their behalf. Donations are accepted until August 30th for BFK and Chip in for Kids. Donate Now.

We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
