Yard Sale for the Cure
The concept is simple. You have a yard sale on May 27th and donate all or some of the proceeds to the Yard Sale for the Cure.
More about the Yard Sale for the Cure from the official web site:
“Yard Sale for the Cure is an organization that raises money for Breast Cancer research and treatment by holding a massive series of Yard Sales in selected neighbourhoods across Canada. In 2005, the inaugural event was held in the Toronto Beaches. It was a huge success, raised $45 000 and brought people together with a great sense of community and purpose. Now a growing number of people from across Canada are taking on this idea and Yard Sale for the Cure will be launched in 28 new communities including Edmonton, Oakville, Lorne Park, Bloor West Village / High Park, Leaside / Victoria Village, Thornhill, The Beaches and Peterborough. We imagine that this will create even greater interest for explosive growth in 2007.”
We’re going to participate by auctioning off an Envirolet® System as part of Tara’s Yard Sale with the proceeds going to the Yard Sale for the Cure. The system is going to be a pretty unique one too… We’ll have some photos when it’s ready. Tara is with Re/Max Spirit Inc., in the Brooklin office.
If you’re in one of the areas (most of Ontario and Edmonton) why not sign-up! More info.
