Why donate?

  1. All donations go directly to Chai Lifeline Canada, a non-profit organization that provides support and services to children and families impacted by life-threatening or life-long illness. Learn more about them here.
  2. If we reach our fundraising goal of $1000, the current Grand Prize – an Xbox Series S – will level up and become an Xbox Series X!
  3. Every donation will be matched by Soulber and our other sponsors up to $1000. That means if we raise $1000, Chai Lifeline Canada gets $2000!

So please consider donating – not only will this support an amazing cause, the pot will be even sweeter come game day!
