International Women’s Day is upon us! In the lead up to this day celebrating women we thought we would highlight a few ways you can make your SPUD purchases make a difference in directly improving the lives of women across Greater Vancouver. What’s more, this will come at no extra cost!
We are proud to currently support four fantastic organizations who focus on uplifting women and girls in our communities. Through our Fundraising program you can support any one of them by either purchasing a fundraising box from spud.ca/fundraising or a fundraising gift card from spud.ca/spudcards. Just follow the directions listed at the top of either page and enjoy your SPUD delivery while also contributing to the essential work these organizations do! We will donate 10-25% of every fundraising box or gift card you purchase on your behalf.
