Give 'n' Thanks

Submitted by Debby Herold on Tue, 09/29/2015 - 2:57pm

To give and say thanks to a colleague, friend or secret admirer…
give a Give 'n' Thanks star!

What is Give ‘n’ Thanks?

The Give ‘n’ Thanks campaign is an exciting fundraising activity for UCalgary’s United Way campaign. Golden stars can be purchased with all proceeds going to UCalgary's United Way campaign. You can then write a message of thanks, words of encouragement or let someone know how they make Calgary a better place for all. You can then deliver the golden star anonymously or in-person to the recipient of your choice. 

How much does a Give ‘n’ Thanks golden star cost?

Each golden star is sold for a minimum of $1 per star. Check with your faculty/unit to see what they are selling for. 100% of the proceeds from each sale goes directly to United Way.

When are they on sale?

Stars are on sale from November 7 until December 16.

When will they be delivered?

You can purchase the golden stars from your United Way representative (stay tuned for list of sellers) or contact Kelly Knight Dasko. After purchasing the stars, you can hand-deliver these to your recipients. It is an opportunity to recognize, support and encourage your colleagues, employees, teammates or even strangers, across campus!

On sale from November 7 until December 16!
