If you are connected with us, you likely already know that we’ve started a new initiative here at YACC: an electronic newsletter. Up To Here is a monthly update that tells you what’s happening with YACC and the young adult cancer community in Canada sent right to your inbox. (If you haven’t heard about it yet, sign up!) Up To Here replaces our quarterly printed newsletter and allows more of our funds to go directly to the young adult support programs we offer.
This is only one of the recent efforts we are making internally at YACC in order to reduce paper usage and become more efficient. We have also begun sending out electronic tax receipts for your donations when an email address is provided. We need your help. If you have donated to us in the past or think you might in the future, we encourage you to contact us and let us know your email address. I promise you, it will be as good as making another donation, but without having to pull out the checkbook!
The more we can communicate with you through email, the better. We will save time, which will making us better able to focus our efforts on young adults with cancer, and paper, which will help the environment. You will also start to see the benefits. Your tax receipts will come much quicker than usual, you’ll be informed of YACC news and special events through Up To Here (if you wish to be) without having to visit our site every other day. Don’t get me wrong, we’d love for you to visit our site every other day, and you’ll have the knowledge that you’re helping us and the young adults we serve by taking your support to another level.
So please consider calling us at 1.877.571.7325 or send your electronic address to us at [email protected] to show your support and help us to become more green!
