This year, the ‘Caps are aiming to raise $50,000 in support of Covenant House Vancouver and our mental health programs through #BuckUp for Mental Health. The campaign culminates at the ‘Caps match this Saturday, June 3 when Whitecaps FC take on Atlanta United FC at BC Place.
There are more ways than ever to get involved in #BuckUp for Mental Health:
1. Raffle - new this year is a raffle with only 1,000 tickets available at a cost of $20 each. The grand prize is a pair of roundtrip tickets anywhere WestJet flies. Order your raffle tickets online at www.whitecapsfc.com/raffle
2. Auction – fans can bid on one-of-a-kind experiences and unique items with all proceeds benefitting the campaign and Covenant House Vancouver. Check out the auction online at www.whitecapsfc.com/auctions
3. Donate – at the match on June 3 or online at www.whitecapsfc.com/buckup
“A few dollars may not seem like much,” said Whitecaps FC president Bob Lenarduzzi, “but when we all come together for this worthwhile cause, we can make a big difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable youth in our community.”

The Home Depot Canada Foundation is committed to ending youth homelessness, pledging to invest $20 million over five years through The Orange Door Project. This initiative will give homeless youth the housing, support and hope they need to live safe, healthy and productive lives.
One component of The Orange Door Project is The Home Depot’s national fundraising campaign. From now until July 2, The Home Depot customers can buy a $2 paper door in support of a local youth-focused housing charity. All funds raised at the Richmond, Vancouver, and Vancouver Cambie Home Depot stores during the campaign will support Covenant House Vancouver. Encourage your friends, family members, neighbours and colleagues to support the campaign today!

We wanted to remind you about the Matching Gift Challenge. All donations will be matched up to a total of $80,000!
In addition to Robert’s amazing gift, another friend is adding $30,000 to Robert’s $50,000 for a Matching Gift Challenge total of $80,000. Every dollar you give will be doubled. But the deadline is June 9th. We hope that you will seize this special opportunity – this Matching Gift Challenge – to help provide our young people with the love and support they need.
Your gift made before June 9th will provide TWICE the help and TWICE the hope to the young people who seek out our help and love.
Special thanks to Robert Little and our anonymous friend for their incredible support!
