Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
It’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes.
In 2021, the Wolfe Pack Warriors gave out $10,000 to charities chosen by our people.
The Mustard Seed
The Mustard Seed is a safe and supportive place where individuals experiencing barriers associated with poverty and homelessness can have their physical needs met in the short term. In the long term, the process to heal and grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually for a better life down the road can begin.Edmonton and Calgary

Providing food to those in need can be hard even at the best of times. With COVID-19, that task became much more difficult. Food Banks across Alberta and Canada are the first line of emergency food support for families and individuals living with food insecurity. Together, we can help them fight hunger and its root causes because no one should go hungry.Donate in Calgary Donate in the Bow Valley Donate in Edmonton
Giving Tuesday 2021
Our organization supports local non-profits creating opportunities
for women, kids & their families, and access to the outdoors & athletics.
Leading up to Giving Tuesday our Wolfe Pack Warriors’ team members told us about the organization they would like to support
and made the final decision between the top three picks.
Here are the winners:
Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS)
Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS) provides immediate
and low-barrier 24/7 shelter, a drop-in resource centre, temporary
supportive housing, temporary independent cohort housing,
and individualized wrap-around supports for young people aged 15–24.
Kids Kottage is a crisis prevention and early intervention service
that keeps infants and children safe, and families strong. When a family
is under toxic levels of stress whether it be from job loss, homelessness,
the effects of poverty, mental or physical health issues, abuse,
or whatever the case -so are the children- they are the hidden victims.
Brown Bagging for Calgary's Kids (BB4CK)
BB4CK works to ensure no child goes hungry in their community. With a
dedicated group of volunteers, they come together and prepare healthy lunches
that are delivered to kids in school; whether they are based in the central
kitchen, or one of the 24 community groups that are spread throughout Calgary.
Project All In
Project All In Foundation and “the coin” was created to help the first responder
community start conversations about their mental wellness, help debrief calls
and ultimately to aid in suicide prevention.
One of the biggest hurdles in getting help is finding the best way to ask for it.
