Lend a Hand for November Awareness Month


Since 2011, PHA Canada has held the Lend a Hand campaign, through which members and supporters raise awareness of pulmonary hypertension and funds in support of PHA Canada's programs. 

The Lend a Hand campaign makes it easy for anyone to get involved in raising awareness at work, school, or among family and friends. When you order a Lend a Hand kit, you receive everything you need to inform those around you about PH, collect tokens of support, and even raise funds for PHA Canada. 

Update: We're out of Lend a Hand kits for 2016! If you weren't able to order your kit on time and still want to get involved in PH Awareness Month activities, contact our Communications Associate, Mariane, at mblaporte@phacanada.ca

Lend a Hand for PH Online

This year, we have completely redesigned our Lend a Hand materials, whih include an interactive online component. Post our Lend a Hand for PH video on your Facebook page, and tag 5 PHriends or email the link to your contacts and ask them to do the same. 

How does the Lend a Hand campaign work?

Here's how it works:

1. Contact PHA Canada to receive your Lend a Hand for PH kit.

This kit contains: a poster to collect signatures and handprints, fact sheets on PH, flyers to advertise your Lend a Hand event, and PH Awareness window stickers for participants. The kit also contains a sample letter to make a request for a Lend a Hand table at school, work, or community centre and all the info you need to hold a successful Lend a Hand campaign!

We will supply you with as many kits as need! Write to lendahand@phacanada.ca to order your kit, or fill out the online form. 

2. Collect signatures and "handprints" on the poster(s) provided from as many people as you can.

3. Ask participants to donate a loonie or a toonie to support PHA Canada.

4. Count the number of signature you have collected.

Contact our Communications Associate, Mariane Bourcheix-Laporte (mblaporte@phacanada.ca), to let us know how many signature you collected and contribute to our national signature tally! 

4. Consolidate cash donations and send a cheque payable to PHA Canada by December 15, 2016 at:

750 West Broadway St, Suite 917, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1H8

It's that simple but it can make a big periwinkle splash!
