Send unlimited Givin' Thanks stars for $20

For the first time since the Givin’ Thanks initiative launched in 2017, the iconic star cards are available online to be purchased, customized, sent and received from any location.

As part of this year’s 20 for 2020 campaign challenge, you can send unlimited Givin’ Thanks stars to your co-workers for just $20. All proceeds go directly to United Way Calgary and area, where they will be used to make a positive difference in our local community.

Start Givin’ Thanks today

Just log in to UCalgary’s United Way donation portal using your university email address and click on the Givin’ Thanks box. From there, select a $20 donation and, at 9 a.m. the following morning, you’ll get your link to send Givin’ Thanks messages by email.

Save that link — you can use it as often as you like to send Givin’ Thanks stars throughout the entire United Way campaign, ending Dec. 11. 


Show your local love with United Way

Having a common purpose brings us together, makes us stronger and creates community. That might look like helping local families put food on the table, connecting Calgarians with crucial mental health services, or giving people a sense of belonging and inclusion. When we stand united to help others, we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and create ripples of positive impact. Give today to United Way.
