April donations to the Red Cross will be triple matched thanks to Economical Insurance

April 01, 2019

Red Cross hands out supplies

At the Canadian Red Cross, we’re called upon to respond to emergencies and disasters year-round. But as spring settles, we are entering what is typically our busiest time of the year. 

We're readying for floods, wildfires, tornadoes and extreme weather; we're recruiting volunteers, training them, and taking stock of our disaster response supplies. And for us to be as prepared as possible, we need your generous donations this month. Thankfully, Economical Insurance has signed on to help give us an extra push by matching donations from individual Canadians.

From now until April 30, 2019, Economical Insurance will triple match every dollar donated to the Canadian Red Cross*.

Triple your impact

It’s difficult to express the true value of donations from generous Canadians like you. Often, there are simply no words to describe just how much of an impact they can have on someone experiencing a crisis. When you give to the Canadian Red Cross, we use your contribution to care for vulnerable people; to provide food, shelter, clothing and comfort to Canadians in need.

This month, thanks to Economical Insurance's generous triple match, every dollar you give will go three times as far. That means an already generous donation of $100 has the impact of $300, but only if you give before midnight on April 30, 2019.

The proud supporter

One of Canada's leading property and casualty insurance companies, Economical Insurance has been protecting Canadians' homes, cars, businesses, and farms since 1871.

"Economical is proud to partner with the Canadian Red Cross and help build safer and more resilient communities," said Rowan Saunders, President and CEO, Economical Insurance. "Through this national partnership, Economical is helping Red Cross deliver training that helps prepare people for emergencies so they are better able to help themselves and assist those who cannot, including children, isolated seniors and persons with disabilities.”

Why we need your help

When disaster strikes, we mobilize. On average, we respond to an emergency every three hours, helping more than 300 Canadians  per day as a result. As we enter flood season and ramp up for summer responses, your donations will go towards training and recruiting volunteers, and will also help us replenish our disaster response supplies, including but not limited to food and personal comfort kits. 

Do your part today 

Every dollar donated to the Canadian Red Cross makes an impact on the lives of those affected by emergencies and disasters, and this month, those dollars go three times further. There is no better time to donate: every dollar gifted, and then tripled thanks to Economical Insurance, will go toward keeping Canadians safe and helping those affected by crises with the vital assistance they need to recover. 

When it comes to helping, we can’t hesitate. We hope you won’t either – you only have until April 30 to make your gift have triple the impact


*All donations made by April 30, 2019 will be matched up to a maximum of $150,000 by Economical Insurance.
