Campaign Description

Give for Good is an online platform that helps facilitate meaningful giving by easily connecting goods and services from those who have to those who need. Every community has vulnerable individuals and families who struggle to access the goods and services they need to make a difference in their lives. These same communities also have individuals and businesses who have goods and services they would like to give but no easy way to do so. Give for Good helps to overcome the barriers on both sides of the equation to connect those who need with those who have. We're currently in the process of piloting our prototype with the Edmonton Mennonite Centre For Newcomers (EMCN), where we hope to assist woman and families who are new to Edmonton. With your support, we hope to expand and reach additional families and communities across Alberta and beyond. We are reaching out to the booster community, Albertans, and of course all Canadians to help us raise awareness and at least $5,000 to help us advance our prototype. These funds will help us reach a wider audience of individuals and businesses who are able to give and ensure that the platform is easy to use and accessible for those in need within our community. We feel so lucky to be initiating this platform in Edmonton- where there are so many generous and thoughtful people and businesses who truly care about improving the lives of our most vulnerable. Thank you so much for your support!

How Give for Good was Born

The idea for Give for Good came about a few years ago when my husband and I were looking to donate a couch. I decided to post the couch online for free, and within minutes my inbox was flooded with heartbreaking messages. Being pregnant with our first child at the time, I was especially moved by messages from parents who were simply looking for a bed for their kids to sleep on.  They couldn't afford to buy one and had no way to travel to a donation depot in the hopes of finding something that could work.  And even if they did find what they were looking for, they had no way of getting it home.  Reflecting on this experience and through many discussions with family, friends and colleagues, I came to realize that there are so many situations in which vulnerable individuals have specific needs that would really make a difference in their lives but no easy way to request and access what they need.  Also through numerous conversations and meetings, I came to realize that there are many individuals, professionals, and businesses who are looking to give back to their communities through donating items or services, but no easy way to do so.  I knew there had to be a way to reduce the barriers on both sides!

Many conversations later and with input, consultation, and support from several community organizations and stakeholders working with vulnerable populations – the Give for Good online platform was born.

Founder

Meighan is a wife and mother of two young children, and is passionate about helping those in her community. Her understanding of the importance and appreciation for public programs and supports was ingrained from a very young age when her youngest brother was diagnosed with Autism. This experience motivated Meighan to volunteer and work in areas near and dear to her heart. She feels particularly passionate about Special Olympics, where she has volunteered as a coach and a mentor to athletes with intellectual disabilities for over 13 years. Meighan’s lived experience of the importance and significance of needing good social policies and programs to help our most vulnerable, motivated her to pursue a Master’s in Public Health. Meighan has worked in a variety of healthcare settings including the Ministry of Health, Covenant Health and Alberta Health Services. Although Meighan loves the meaningful work she does working for the public sector, she recognizes that many barriers exist for individuals and families trying to access the goods and services they need. She is hopeful that with your support, Give for Good will simultaneously foster meaningful giving while connecting vulnerable community members with the goods and services they need.
