Alex's campaign for YW Calgary

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! It can be hard to ask people for money, but it's a lot easier when you know it's supporting a good cause. 

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit YW Calgary, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

More information about YW Calgary: YW Calgary is the largest and longest serving women's organization in Calgary. For more than a century, we have touched thousands of lives and have continually evolved our programming to meet the changing needs of women in the community. Thank you for your support!

Want to know where your donation goes?
