Friends… read on for a very special promotion from the Canadian Red Cross!
Every day in Canada and abroad, vulnerable people come to the Canadian Red Cross in their time of need. Whether they’ve just seen their home destroyed by a fire, or have lived through a natural disaster like a hurricane or earthquake, the Canadian Red Cross provides care and support when people need it most.
Familiar with their work? Trust me, it’s more than you know – and then some. As one of Canada’s leading humanitarian charities, here’s what the Canadian Red Cross has accomplished in the last year alone:
2,977 disaster responses in Canada
132,472 Canadians assisted
More than 6,000 engaged volunteers
More than 3 million assisted globally
557,000 Canadians took Red Cross First Aid courses
8,600 first aid instructors trained
1,100 lifeguards trained
There’s no doubt about it: the Canadian Red Cross is synonymous with humanity.
Now I know that donating to the Canadian Red Cross is certainly its own reward, but here’s a little extra motivation: during the month of September, they’ve team up with Aeroplan and SCENE as a way of thanking its donors for their generosity and support. For every dollar you donate to the Canadian Red Cross at redcross.ca/points, you’ll have the option of collecting either 20 Aeroplan Miles or 20 SCENE Points!
For example, if you were to donate $200, you’d receive 4,000 points. If you’re a SCENE collector, this would earn you enough points for a fun date night, including premium movie tickets and snacks for two. If you collect Aeroplan Miles, your $200 donation could get you one step closer to a trip to visit family, or you could cash out for some handy gifts or gift cards.
Watch my recent What She Said radio segment for more info:
The best part? Donors who collect both Aeroplan and SCENE points can split their reward points 50/50! This means for every dollar you donate, you can choose to receive 10 Aeroplan Miles and 10 SCENE points.
There’s no limit to how much you can earn – the more you give, the more points you’ll collect! And the greater impact you’ll have on people suffering through a crisis in Canada and abroad.
This promotion only runs from September 1-30, 2018. Visit redcross.ca/points to donate.
Wow! That is a great incentive to give to a good cause!

I hope they run this promotion again because I missed it and would definitely use my Scene Points for a bonus for giving.
