When CanadaHelps was created by three entrepreneurial university students, it was to fill a need. We were born in the early days of Google, pre-date Facebook and Twitter, and we were promoting online giving long before doing your shopping or banking on your cell phone – or even on your computer – was the norm. The founders knew that the world was changing. Commerce was moving online, why not giving?
