This year, the Maison des greffés Lina Cyr is taking part in Giving Tuesday, a worldwide day of generosity, in order to reach a goal of $1,500 in donations in 24 hours.

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a movement that unleashes the power of radical generosity around the world. Celebrated every year since 2012, Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday – two awesome days for the economy – and is a day that encourages people to do good. Giving Tuesday kicks off the holiday season each year and is now a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.

Why a $1,500 goal?

The House offers accommodations at a low cost of $35 per day including meals, cable and Wi-Fi. The actual cost for a day’s accommodation is $150 per day, with meals alone costing $25 per day.

1 500$ is equivalent to 10 days of lodging or 120 meals.

IMPORTANT NOTE

We use the Quebec platform SIMPLYK for donations, so it is under this name that the transaction will appear on your account statement. Usually, we have to pay a credit card fee of about 3%. Thanks to SIMPLYK, which gives us 100% of the donations, we eliminate these fees which are very costly for an organization like ours. In exchange, SIMPLYK asks you to leave them a tip: you will see a percentage appear at the end of the form. You can choose the amount, no amount is mandatory.

Frequently asked questions

We use Simplyk, a 100% free donation tool funded by contributions from generous donors like you. The model is based on transparency: 100% of your donation goes to the Maison des greffés Lina Cyr, while other donation platforms take a percentage.

That’s why Simplyk asks for a voluntary contribution, or “tip,” to help pay for bank fees, support the operation of the platform, and enable Maison des greffés Lina Cyr and thousands of other nonprofit organizations to increase their impact and change the world. Thank you for your support!
