This year’s goal is to raise $20,000 on GivingTuesday to fund the purchase of 40 new wheelchairs for William Osler Health System (Osler).
Wheelchairs are one of the most widely used pieces of equipment in a hospital. Their frequent use means they need to be replaced or repaired on a regular basis and as the number of patients who seek care at Osler continues to grow, so does the demand for new wheelchairs.
Used in every area of the hospital, wheelchairs provide essential mobility for patients who need to be transported from one area to another. Whether it’s a mother going into labour, a child with a broken leg or an elderly patient that needs assistance getting to their appointment, there are many different reasons why people use the wheelchairs at our hospitals.
The cost of each new wheelchair is $500. The community must fund 100% of the equipment within our hospitals, and even a portion of any construction costs. This is known as the ‘community share’.
To encourage the community to give generously, John Esplen and The Humberview Group are matching all donations to Osler Foundation—up to $1 million—until December 31. That means that for every $25 you donate, Osler Foundation will receive $50, or a $100 donation becomes $200.
With thanks to John Esplen and The Humberview Group for matching all gifts made on GivingTuesday!
