Vesey’s Bulbs Fundraiser – March 24 – April 5, 2019

Our most loved fundraiser has returned! Vesey’s bulbs is back with their spring collection!

There are options for large gardens, patios, balconies and even some for your kitchen counter top.

Not only do we get an amazing return from this fundraiser (50%!), we are able to place your donation through Shaw Charity Classic’s Birdies for Kids – which will increase our donation rate up to an additional 50%. This means you not only get to plant a spectacular garden this year, but it gives our cause extra love!
That means if you purchase $20.00 of flowers, we initially receive $10.00, and then up to an additional $5.00 from Birdies for Kids. That is up to 75% of your purchase.

2018 Membership Drive

May is Speech and Hearing Awareness Month and this month we are kicking off a membership drive to increase our number of formal members in Alberta Hands & Voices.  Having registered and paid members is critical to our ongoing success.  As a non-profit organization, we are dependent upon registration fees, grants, and other donations in order to function.  Certain grants and fundraising opportunities have minimum membership requirements to qualify, which we currently do not meet. 

That’s why we need your help! 

Annual dues are $25/family or $40/professional. With a paid membership, you will receive the Hands & Voices quarterly newsletter, The Communicator as well as free admission to Alberta H&V events, including our Calgary family picnic scheduled for this September. In addition, all new or renewal memberships this month will be entered into a prize draw. Our goal is to have 25 new memberships activated this month! Please feel free to share the flyer with anyone who may be interested in membership!

Scholarships are available to anyone who cannot afford the membership dues.

Activate or renew your membership today!
