Bucket List 50/50

Why is it called the Bucket List 50/50?

At Hospice we aim to create opportunities for individuals and families to talk about end of life. We advise that everyone plan for end of life, consider their wishes, and pursue quality of life each and every day. It is our hope that when playing this lottery people will consider these things and what they would check off their “bucket list” if they won.

What does this fundraiser support?

Your participation in this program will assist in raising funds for vital Hospice programming…but that’s not all! In an effort to build a more compassionate community, we’re sharing the wealth. This fundraiser will also provide funding support to additional charities with likeminded mandates.

Great! So, how does the game work?

Step 1

As a new player, you will drop in to one of our retailers (listed below) and fill out a Registration form with your unique number. Only one person per form, but you can register as many times as you wish. The number(s) remain your registered number(s) for life unless retired by you in writing.

Step 2

Tear off and keep your half of the form and deposit the registration form in the Bucket List Bucket. You are now a registered player with a unique number; however, you must play your number in order to win any weekly draw.

Step 3

The cost to play is a Toonie a week for each of your numbers. For each Toonie, write your number very clearly on a sticker provided at location. Attach the sticker to your Toonie and drop it in the bucket. That’s all you need to do!

Step 4

The cut-off time at our retail stores is Noon each week on Wednesday. Weekly draws from registered numbers are made every Wednesday at approximately 5:30 p.m. and the winner will be notified by telephone and/or email that same evening.

The draw’s value is 50% of the total pool each week. In the event a number is drawn that has not been played that week, the pot is carried over and added to the following week’s draw. The pot will only roll over four times, guaranteeing a winner every month.

Where can I register and play?

Did you know... Hospice has a wonderful community of volunteers who lovingly create our “lapghans".

Many of our lapghans, or lap blankets, are crocheted by the talented group pictured above at the Creative Café at the Valley United Church.

They regularly use their crochet skills to make sure that our volunteers are able to give these comforts of home to as many patients as we can on the Palliative Care Unit. For more information about our "lapghans" and how you can help out, please call (902) 893-3265, drop by our office, or message us on Facebook.

We asked Colchester East Hants Hospice Society Vice-President, Ricardo Garcia: Why is Hospice important to you?

"One of the precious things that we have in our life is family, who we could not live without. Originally from the Philippines, and growing up in a culture where family ties are valued the most, I certainly faced personal challenges when I moved to Canada almost a decade ago.

I created my own version of family with my friends, my patients in the long term care facility and the community that I served. As a registered nurse, I experienced grief and loss through people who were family to me; patients and friends. Fortunately, Hospice was there with us every step of the way. It gave me comfort and peace of mind to know that there were volunteers keeping a friend company when I was at work and to offer support to a patient after my visit.

To pay it forward, I volunteered to be part of the Hospice family knowing that Hospice resonates with my dream to build a more compassionate community."

Did you know... our Memorial Garden was created by the combined hard work of wonderful volunteers, plants and trees from Joanne Venner's Garden and a grant from the United Way?

People often remark how beautiful the garden is when it is in full bloom. That beauty is not possible without volunteers who love to work with the earth.

Here is our garden view from May 15, 2019. Watch our garden grow over the coming months... and be sure to check out our Garden & Chat events if you are interested in helping us out this season.

If you have a green thumb, or just love being outside with great people, contact us at (902) 893-3265, or send us a Facebook message.
