#FirstPayDay Challenge

Can you help us create 25 jobs this summer?

We are looking for supporters to become individual fundraisers or start a fundraising team to create 25 jobs. LITE jobs help people who are struggling in our community to earn a first pay cheque. LITE jobs give people a chance to build a resume, earn some money, and prove what they can do.

Getting involved is easy. Create a team or individual LITE #FirstPayDay page from CanadaHelps and answer these questions:

Do you remember what it felt like to earn YOUR first pay cheque? Do you remember YOUR first pay day?

Share your story and create jobs for people who need your help with a hand up into work. Every $400 raised creates 1 LITE job that supports a person who needs a hand up into a job.

All the steps:

1. Create a fundraising team or sign up as an individual.

2. Share your story with friends online and ask them to donate.

For extra awesomeness-points, take your fundraising out of the digital realm and hold a real-life get-together. Keep it fun (and perhaps in the realm of “things you’d like to do anyway”):

Payday Nachos, anyone? (Mmmmm!)
Friday BBQ? (Mmmm, mmmmm!)
Sun-tan-a-thon? (Ahhhhhhh!)

Get together, share stories of first jobs and that all-important first pay day! Collect donations by donating online.

– If you’d like to go BIGGER, you or your team can raise funds by holding a garage sale, a walk-a-thon, or a concert featuring your Rolling Stones Tribute Band!

3. Spread the word!
