YOUR SUPPORT TRULY MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
By purchasing a Lotomania ticket, you have a chance to "Live Free for a Year" while helping ensure the Canadian Red Cross is always there when needed to assist Atlantic Canadians coping with disaster.
Our volunteers respond an average of once a day to Atlantic disasters or emergencies that come in many forms - from house fires affecting a few people to community evacuations impacting hundreds. Real, recent examples have included forest fires, storm surges, chemical leaks, derailments and ice storms, among others. Lotomania proceeds defray costs like emergency purchases of clothing, food or medicine, temporary shelter, and training and equipping our volunteers who respond 24 hours a day.
We receive letters of thanks from every corner of Atlantic Canada. Here's part of one from a woman whose family was forced from their bungalow by 2012 flash flooding in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick:
But there is hope!
"Despite our best efforts, we lost everything in the flood; it just came so fast. Then, when all hope seemed lost, I found out the Red Cross was willing to help. It was the first time I've ever needed to turn to them and they were phenomenal. They gave us a place to stay ... as well as vouchers for meals, grocery and gas cards. It reminds you that there are better things to come, that there is hope."
That's what your Lotomania ticket purchase does. It provides a wonderful chance for you to win great prizes, knowing all proceeds will be used by the Canadian Red Cross to bring hope to others when they need it most.
