Give IT UP!


Shuswap Hospice is a volunteer society that provides compassionate support for patients with a terminal illness and their loved ones.

What Is the Challenge?

After the excesses of the festive season we can feel ready to take a break from some of our less healthy lifestyle choices; maybe alcohol, or chocolate or that afternoon latte and treat.

So why not GIVE IT UP FOR HOSPICE? Get healthier and support hospice services in the Shuswap.

How Do I Take Part?

Step 1
Think of something to give up for 3 weeks in January. Coffee? Pop? Beer? Chocolate? Sugar? You get the idea. Whatever money you save by giving it up is donated to the Shuswap Hospice Society. You can choose any 21 days in January you like.

Step 2
Register for free and receive a badge, stickers for a collection jar and a poster so you can let everybody know what you are doing. The Shuswap Hospice Society is a registered charity. Income tax receipts will be provided to registered participants with a minimum donation of $10.00.

Register by email. Send us your name, address and phone number to admin@shuswaphospice.ca

Or call our office at 250-832-7099

Step 3
Keep track of your progress for 21 days and make your donations to Hospice. Any of these three methods are accepted:

Drop off cash or cheque at our office. 781 Marine Park Drive, Salmon Arm.

Donate online by credit card. Click on the DONATE NOW icon on our home page http://www.shuswaphospice.ca

Send us an email with your Interac e-transfer. admin@shuswaphospice.ca

 Are You Worried About Slip Ups?

Slip up? No worries! We know it happens. Clear your conscience by paying a $5 penalty fee and start again.
Special Occasion? If you have a special event during this challenge and need a day off, then pay $15 per day of indulgence.

Can We Invite Others to Join us?

Yes! Be creative. Challenge your co-workers, family and friends to join up or support you with donations.     Make it a friendly competition – we have certificates and recognition rewards.
