Arc’teryx is Matching Any Donation to POW Today!

Good news from our friends at Arc’teryx—the brand is making a big move to match all donations made to our favourite non-profit, Protect Our Winters! More below.

Arc’teryx & Protect Our Winters—two things we like.

From Arc’teryx:

To mark Giving Tuesday—the day after U.S. Thanksgiving devoted to making charitable donations—Arc’teryx has pledged to match all donations made on December 3 to the Protect Our Winters organization, up to CA$60,000.
What’s more, every donation of $50 CAD made will enter the donor in a draw for a chance to win one of two Arc’teryx Whiteline kits, featuring a Whiteline GORE-TEX Jacket, Whiteline GORE-TEX Pants, and an Atom LT Hoody.
This partnership with Protect Our Winters is a great opportunity for Arc’teryx athletes to promote the protection of wild spaces and our climate. The donation is timed perfectly with the launch of Arc’teryx and Protect Our Winters athlete Greg Hill’s film Electric Adventures.
Note that all eligible donations will receive a tax receipt via Protect Our Winters “Hot Planet/Cool Athletes” fund.

From POW:

2019 has been a BIG year for POW Canada. We’re a small organization with an appetite for impact when it comes to Climate
Action and we’ve had some significant accomplishments in 2019:

  • Grew our membership to 7500 Canadians and our social media audience to 17,500
  • Reached 12,000 High School students from coast to coast with our Hot Planet Cool Athletes Program
  • Delivered two high impact Election Campaigns: #FactBack and #GetOutTheVote which, collectively engaged hundreds of thousands of people online
  • Launched 10 regional chapters across Canada: Whistler, Vancouver, Revelstoke, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Collingwood, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City
  • Increased our organizational capacity by adding additional staff, athletes and board members
  • Developed policy statements and positioned ourselves as an environmental lobby group beginning in 2020

This Giving Tuesday, we have the opportunity to provide POW Canada with the funding needed to further our important work on Climate Action in Canada. We have the vision, goals and strategy to have BIG impact and we need your help to deliver on this opportunity.
Your donation will be matched so please give generously.
