Which Charity?

62 3 9

And now it comes to it.  This is your first decision in the story... and it has nothing to do with the story.

I'm having trouble deciding which charity I want this Your Very Own Adventure story to support.  But why make a decision like this when I have people to do it for me?

I've narrowed it down to three charities.  How convenient.  Vote on the charity that most strikes your fancy.  The charity with the most votes is the charity this story will be supporting.

Voting ends when the story comes to a close, so you have a long time to decide and cast your vote.

Here are your options:

a) The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa

Established in 1923, the BGCO aims to provide a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life.

They have reached out to 4,500 children and youth each year through after-school, weekend and summer programs that build self-esteem and help to develop stronger social skills.

The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa is a registered charity. Charitable Registration # 11881-4565-RR0001
