About the charities

CIRI Alberta has partnered with Social Venture Partners, and the proceeds will be used toward the purchase of a new clothing baler for the WINS Social Enterprise project. The clothing baler will provide WINS with the ability to increase its annual revenue by $14,000. The estimated lifespan of the baler is 10 to 15 years.

Get Real offers social responsibility programs designed to demonstrate an awareness of the impact of bullying, harassment, violence and isolation on individual self-esteem on Alberta youths. The programs have been running since 2005. Proceeds will off-set the costs of offering this program in the schools, allowing Get Real to become a life-changing movement in the schools.
