Volunteer Opportunity Details
Description of Duties: Fundraise with us

ShelterBox Canada is an organization made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right - that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. Last year only one in five families worldwide received the support they needed following disaster. At ShelterBox, we are impatient to create a world where no family is without shelter when disaster strikes. Together, we are making an impact and you are a critical part of our movement.

As a ShelterBox Canada Changemaker, you will help us raise funds to help us in our mission to see no family without shelter when disaster strikes. We are looking for people who will participate in our campaigns as well as host their own fundraising events such as participating in sponsored sports events, craft sales, hosting a ShelterBox themed party, and much more.

Commitment:

At least twice a year coordinate a ShelterBox fundraiser of your choosing:
Donate a special occasion to ShelterBox (ex. birthday, Christmas, anniversary, etc.)

Host a Shine for ShelterBox event
Go Off-the-Grid
Host your own fundraising events

Activate in times of disaster - when major disasters strike, families need our help more than ever. During this time we need the support of our volunteers to share important updates about our current response. We need your support to share these urgent updates with your network and help us to raise funds and awareness while the disaster is in the media spotlight
