American Thanksgiving is this weekend but for many people, it’s the weekend of online sales. If you plan on shopping on Amazon this Black Friday or Cyber Monday, why not support the Canadian Ski Patrol at the same time!

The Canadian Ski Patrol (CSP) is a registered charity whose 4,500 volunteers provide advanced first aid and rescue services to more than 230 ski areas from coast to coast, including alpine and Nordic. Last winter the CSP provided 260,000 hours of volunteer service to these ski areas. CSP services also extend beyond the snow to offering first aid and medical support for a long list of sporting events such as marathons and mountain bike races, as well as concerts and community events.

As a charitable organisation, the CSP raises funds to support their organisation and they have an Amazon affiliates program that makes it easy for anyone to help raise funds on their behalf while shopping on Amazon. The process is very simple: When you start shopping on Amazon using link the system tracks your purchases and automatically donates up to 8.5 percent of your purchase to the Canadian Ski Patrol. So every time you shop on Amazon, start with this link. It’s that simple.

Help raise funds for the Canadian Ski Patrol by sharing this link with your network by email or on social media. Those who are interested can begin their online shopping on Amazon by simply clicking this link:
