Send unlimited Givin' Thanks stars for $20

The iconic star cards are back in digital form and are available online to be purchased, customized, sent and received.

As part of this year’s 2021 campaign challenge, you can send unlimited Givin’ Thanks stars to your colleagues for just $20. All proceeds go directly to United Way of Calgary and Area, where they will make a positive difference in our local community.

Start Givin’ Thanks today

Givin’ Thanks has never been easier. Just log in to the Givin’ Thanks page on UCalgary’s United Way donation portal using your university email address.  From there, select a $20 donation and you’ll get your link to send Givin’ Thanks messages by email the next day.

Save that link — you can use it as often as you like to send Givin’ Thanks stars throughout the entire United Way campaign, ending Dec. 10. 

Show your local love with United Way

Having a common purpose brings us together, makes us stronger and creates community. That might look like helping local families put food on the table, connecting Calgarians with crucial mental health services, or giving people a sense of belonging and inclusion. When we stand united to help others, we are part of something bigger than ourselves, and create ripples of positive impact. Give today to United Way.
