#HOPEbracelet Contest Returns for 2019

by British Columbia
Categories: Blog

After a great first year which saw over 60,000 bracelets given out in 25 cities across the province we are very excited to bring the #HOPEbracelet back this year and have more great prizes available for those who share their support online.


What is the #HOPEbracelet?

In British Columbia, more people than ever live at, or below the poverty line. Everyone needs an Army to support them in times of need and you can show your support by proudly wearing your #HOPEbracelet and sharing it with others.

This holiday season you can receive a #HOPEbracelet when you donate at one of our Christmas Kettles in British Columbia. Share an image online of you wearing your bracelet with the hashtag #HOPEbracelet and be automatically entered to win one of three great prizes including a Sports Fan Prize Pack (with gear from some of our favourite Canadian teams), a Nintendo Switch Lite, or a Tim Hortons gift card.
