Your funding helps us continue our important work cleaning up the planet. We need to purchase cleanup supplies and equipment as well as pay for day-to-day things like web hosting, banking fees, and office supplies. We are so grateful for any donations we receive as it helps us focus less on how we're going to pay for things and more on what impactful project we can launch next.
The Butt Blitz is an annual event that focuses on the cleanup and prevention of cigarette butt litter in our environment. We organize event coordinators across Canada who mobilize groups of volunteers to pick up littered butts and distribute pocket ashtrays. Donations and sponsorship of this event goes directly towards the purchase of pocket ashtrays, shipping supplies to coordinators, and marketing to reach potential volunteers. At our first event we picked up 87,015 butts, and at the second event 122,800. All the butts are sent to TerraCycle for recycling. This year we need approximately $3,000 to cover the costs of this event, not a lot considering it's a Canada-wide event, but more than ever before because we have more event coordinators than ever before! This is good news, we expect to pick up a record number of butts and distribute hundreds of pocket ashtrays. All sponsors will be recognized through our social media and on our website. Thank you for supporting this event, many people underestimate the harm of cigarette butts in our environment.
Love Your Lake is an annual project that includes 100 litter cleanups along Lake Ontario. We start in Niagara-on-the-Lake and work our way around wrapping up in Kingston. This year our program launches on May 10th and we welcome you to join us along the way! We are seeking funding to help cover costs that are not covered by the grants we receive. This includes travel expenses like gas and parking, lunch for our team members while they're on the road, and most importantly liability insurance. We can't run the program without these expenses so your support helps make the project happen! All sponsors will be recognized throughout the project via social media and on our website. Please visit the Love Your Lake webpage for more details about the project.
