The perfect present is a brighter future.

Imagine a Winnipeg where everyone has an opportunity to participate, to share their talents and contribute to our common good. Imagine a gift that will change lives right here in our city.

The perfect present is a brighter future.This year, consider a gift to your community; a gift that will have meaning well beyond the holiday; a gift with potential to change many, many lives, including your own.

With just weeks remaining in United Way’s 2011 campaign and $2.2 million yet to raise, Winnipeggers are counting on your support to ensure stability for an essential network of social programs and services in our city.

A gift in any amount will help create opportunities for lasting change and better lives in our community.

“There are so many incredible things happening in Winnipeg right now,” said Edward Kennedy, United Way’s 2011 Campaign Chair. “But we must also focus on ensuring it’s a great city for everyone.”

Members of the Stroke Recovery Association’s St. James peer support group have the right idea. In the true spirit of the holidays, they opted to forego their traditional gift exchange this year, and instead collected a $95 donation for United Way.

To make your gift, click Donate now or call (204) 477-5360. You can also donate in person at United Way’s office at 580 Main Street, Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 4:45 pm.

Thank you and all the best for a happy, healthy, safe and successful new year.
