Registering for The Long, Long Night of Hope is free and just takes a few minutes. You need to create a profile on CanadaHelps.org (unless you already have one), and you have to "purchase" a free ticket to participate. Once you have done that, you are ready to start fundraising. You can personalize your page or leave it as is - just share the link with social media, and email it to friends and family. If you run into any problems along the way, just email us! We are here to help!
We have included a Registration Guide above (hover over the Get Involved tab) to help you.
We know our local businesses love our community as much as we do. We know you want to help, and we have lots of ideas on how you can do just that! Email us for more information.

We use the fundraising platform at CanadaHelps.org to keep our costs as low as possible, allowing more than 95% of money donated to go directly to the shelters in Kelowna and North Vancouver. CanadaHelps.org is a non-profit itself, and only deducts costs involved with processing credit card and PayPal payments.
Once you create your fundraising page, share the link everywhere and often! Tell them why you want to help the homeless, and they will be more than happy to donate! Ask them to share your link, too, to reach even more donors.
