‘Tis the season for giving, but let’s be honest, one of the best parts of the holiday season lies in the getting. Don’t get me wrong, giving to others, especially those in need, is an amazing feeling, but it’s also nice to be the beneficiary of someone’s thoughtfulness.
Thanks to the Ottawa-Gatineau Youth Foundation, there are a number of ways that you can do both, just in time for Christmas.
Though the organization is no longer affiliated with the Ottawa Senators, one of their prime fundraising methods over the years has been auctioning off Sens memoriabilia, much of which is signed by players both past and present. The proceeds of which go towards giving young people in the Ottawa community more access to sport, recreation, mental health support services and post secondary education.
As luck would have it, the OGYF has over 600(!) Senators-branded items to auction off. Everything from signed jerseys, pucks, pictures, and more are all available, with proceeds going to making the the Ottawa-Gatineau area a better place for deserving youth.
The organization, today, launched the Sensapalooza Locker Room Sale and Auction. Want to get your Sens collectibles (before I buy them all up)? Head over to http://ogyf.givesmart.com/, and find the items that’ll make your holiday season. There are even some that you can buy outright, instead of bidding on, so hurry before they’re gone!
The Ottawa-Gatineau Youth Foundation is giving us all an amazing opportunity to be the star of Christmas, or get a little something for ourselves, all the while giving back to the community that we love. Head over now, while the getting is good!
