As always, July 1st is when Canadians celebrate this spectacular nation from coast to coast. Whether you and your family go camping, stay in and get cozy, or venture out to local festivals or Canada Day events, some sort of preparation goes into this holiday. With the beginning of July fast approaching, consider getting a head start on your Canada Day celebrations by gathering the necessities ahead of time.
FlipGive is an online-based fundraising site, dedicated to providing easy and hassle-free service to groups and teams looking to raise money for certain events. FlipGive works with many popular, amazing brands that offer cash back on all purchases made through a FlipGive fundraising page. Shop online for your Canada Day 2017 supplies, and give back to your community at the same time.
No matter what you do on Canada Day, chances are, you and your family will need to eat. There are many partners on FlipGive that offer gift cards to their dining establishment, so save the dishes and head out for a nice night on the town with your family on July 1st.
Organize a Potluck
Another way to celebrate Canada Day 2017 with your community is to organize a potluck with family, friends, and perhaps, strangers. Spread the word on social media, rent a space at a local park, and set up a BBQ for the day. Invite attendees to bring their specialty dish, or some food to cook on the BBQ throughout the day. Set up some lawn games, and bring a volleyball or two to get some activity between the spread of fabulous food.
Head to a Local Event
Do your research ahead of time, and find out what sort of Canada Day 2017 events are going on in your neighbourhood, town, or city. Prepare a daypack, and some snacks to sustain you through the day. The Container Store has all of the food storage solutions you need and gives 5% cash back on all purchases made through FlipGive fundraising pages.
Scope Out Some Fireworks
Putting on a fireworks show of your own can be costly, and dangerous. Many cities offer lavish firework displays on Canada Day that can be seen from a distance. Find out where the fireworks display will be in the city nearest to you, and scope out a good spot away from the crowds before the show starts. Lay out a blanket, cuddle up with your loved ones, and enjoy a beautiful Canada Day fireworks display.
Purchase your Canada Day 2017 supplies ahead of the rush from one of the the amazing brands that support FlipGive’s fundraisers. FlipGive allows shoppers to support fundraisers, while purchasing what they need, all year long. There are no fees for fundraisers, and the hassle-free registration is as easy as signing up and inviting friends and family to shop.
