Canadian Red Cross personal disaster relief Disasters and emergencies are unpredictable and can happen any time and in any community across Canada. So it’s important that help is ready and able to arrive quickly for those who need it most.

The Canadian Red Cross can respond rapidly and effectively whenever events such as house fires, floods, hurricanes and storms occur because of donations from generous Canadians and support from corporate partners like Aviva Canada.

This month, Aviva Canada has become the first insurance company to join as a National Corporate Partner of the Canadian Red Cross’ Ready When the Time Comes program with an offer to double match every dollar donated to the Canadian Red Cross*.

Triple your impact
From now until April 30, 2015, each dollar you donate will be worth triple. That means for every $100 of support, donors will actually be providing $300 worth of impact. That’s more food, shelter, clothing and comfort to Canadians during their time of need.

The proud supporter
Aviva Canada is one of the leading property and casualty insurance groups in Canada providing home, auto and business insurance to more than three million customers.  Aviva Canada invests in positive change through the Aviva Community Fund, Canada’s longest running online community funding competition.  Since its inception in 2009, the Aviva Community Fund has awarded more than $5.5 million to over 100 communities nationwide.
 
Why your help is needed
Every day, Red Cross volunteers are mobilized to respond during disasters ranging from house fires to forest fires, tornadoes and flooding. Their priority is to help people affected by offering comfort and meeting their basic needs including shelter, food, clothing and personal items.

In 2014, the Canadian Red Cross helped more than 40,000 Canadians make it through nearly 3,000 emergencies and disasters.
 
Do your part today
Every donation makes an impact on the lives of those affected by emergencies and disaster. But  while this offer lasts, you can triple the outcome of your generosity and provide more Canadians with the vital assistance that can help see them through a crisis.

Don’t hesitate to make your gift have triple the impact – support the Canadian Red Cross today.

*Aviva Canada will donate up to a maximum amount of $200,000 in total for donations made prior to April 30, 2015.
