Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend has added a Virtual Garage Sale to its Scotiabank Charity Challenge program through a partnership with GiveShop – a new online marketplace where users can donate or buy gently used items with all proceeds supporting their preferred charity.
Now Scotiabank Charity Challenge participants and donors can add to their fundraising efforts simply by clearing out a few items from their basements and storage lockers and posting them on GiveShop or by purchasing one of the hundreds of great items already listed on the marketplace in support of one of the Scotiabank Charity Challenge charity partners. To support Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend using GiveShop, shop for items with ‘Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend’ tags on them or post items for sale and link them to participating charities. In addition, all GiveShop charities who are part of Race Weekend are indicated with an “RW” at the end of their charity name in the charity dropdown menu.
