The BC Lung Association has launched its largest annual fundraiser – the Christmas Seals Campaign.

For over 100 years the arrival of Christmas Seals in mailboxes across Canada has been a holiday tradition, helping to raise funds for vital lung health and air quality research, programs and initiatives across the province.

BC Lung Association volunteer director Gary Chapple of Abbotsford  encourages the public to use Christmas Seals on their holiday cards, and donate to the cause.

“This year, our goal for the Christmas Seals Campaign is to raise $1 million … We urge British Columbians to give as much as they can this holiday season,” Chapple said.

To make a donation, call 604-731-5864 or toll-free 1-800-665-5864 outside the Lower Mainland, or visit the website bc.lung.ca.
