If you can’t make the meeting, no worries. We’ll announce the selected charity on our web site and you can call me at 780-434-0838 to get your cheque to us, or mail it to 100 People Who Care, Box 4297, Edmonton, AB T6E 4T3. Some folks have already dropped off their cheques – we’ll fill in the charity’s name at the meeting.
