Help UGM Feed The Hungry This Thanksgiving and John Chow Will Match Your Donation

Canadian Thanksgiving is less than a week away and what better way to show thanks than to make sure Vancouver’s hungry and homeless have a hot turkey dinner from the Union Gospel Mission. For just $3.29, less than your daily latte, you can make sure someone has a good Thanksgiving.

Union Gospel Mission has been providing hope for the hungry, hurting and homeless since 1940. With 12 facilities placed between downtown Vancouver and the city of Mission, UGM is ideally positioned to help those who need it the most. Employing a full-time staff of approximately 130 and relying on a broad base of loyal volunteers, Union Gospel Mission provides meals, shelter, education, counselling, housing and more to hundreds of people each day.

Everyone’s favourite Vancouver ‘make money online’ blogger, John Chow, is matching donations to the UGM this week – up to $1000 per person. From John’s blog:

I will personally match every dollar donated by John Chow dot Com readers up to a maximum of $1000.00 per person. Simply make a donation at the UGM online donation page, then email me a copy of the receipt to johnchow @

You can donate online via credit card or Paypal. In addition to a donation John will link back to your website or blog if you include it when you forward your receipt to him – if you donate $1,000 or more you will receive a free review on John’s blog.
