CarbonX Canada, in collaboration with its partner CCRI (Crypto Carbon Rating Institute), determines the average carbon emission for a donation of cryptocurrency by coin type. This data allows CanadaHelps to purchase the required carbon credit to offset this emission and ensure carbon neutrality.

Run an Event

We are very fortunate to receive third-party donations from many generous businesses, associations, and individuals who have held fundraising events on our behalf. If you have a fundraising idea or an event planned, please contact Shelby and let her know how we can help.

Volunteer

Throughout the year, the Boys and Girls Club of London Foundation and BGC London hosts various fundraising events and are only able to do this, through the generous support of many volunteers. We continually have a need for volunteers to help provide insight, expertise and helping hands on our Fund Development and Special Events committees and at events. If interested, please contact us.
