During the holiday season, there are millions of out-of-office emails sent. The Salvation Army wants to use them to help the 1 in 7 Canadians living in poverty who likely can’t afford to take time off. We’re asking Canadians to turn their generic out-of-office email into a generous request for donations. Even if 1% of the emails sent this holiday season use our out-of-office message, we’ll have the potential to reach an enormous number of people.

Just copy and paste the email below and enjoy your holiday knowing your out-of-office email is helping to feed, clothe, shelter and empower those in need.

Instead of being generic, be generous!


Subject: Out of Office for a Cause

Thank you for your message. I am out of office on holiday.

But 1 in 7 Canadians struggling to make ends meet can’t always afford to take time off. While you wait for me to return, please donate to The Salvation Army and help make this holiday season a happy one for everyone.
