JOIN AL’S PALS
When you join Al’s Pals, you help us reach the root of the issue. A monthly pledge provides sleeping bags, toothbrushes, groceries, and a real connection to our street family.
Your contributions provide real food, necessities, warmth, and belonging to the people on Victoria’s streets. Join Al’s Pals, and know that you’re truly making a difference.
You’re creative. You’re social. You’ve got a knack for planning events. We need people like you! We are so dedicated to help our street family that it’s hard to find the time to organize fundraising events. That’s where you come in. Our family needs all the help we can get: from sock drives to blanket-a-thons to good old fashioned bake sales.
Your support has a very real impact on our street community. It lets us do more to reach out to our street family. It allows us to focus on providing day-to-day care instead of worrying about raising the funds to do it.
Got an idea? Send us an email with the logistics, and we’ll help you develop your plan for the greatest impact.
Create a giving group on Chimp.net, and select Victoria Dandelion Society as the charity you are fundraising for. Chimp is a great way to organize your donations and make giving easy!
Tell your network about your fundraising event or initiative. Email, Facebook and Twitter are all great ways to get your message out there! Look below for cover images, logos, and photos.
Don’t forget to thank everyone who donated! Your donors will receive an official tax receipt and confirmation from Chimp, but sending them a personal message will make them feel appreciated.
Spread the word
Like a single dandelion spreads its seeds across a field, so can you spread our message of advocacy, acceptance, and love. Help Rev Al sow the Dandelion Society’s message by downloading and sharing these images with your friends and family. We need your voice to speak out for compassion in our city.

Pictures tell a story – we have gathered some of our favourite photos from our street community so that you can help us spread the word through images.
Our volunteers are an integral part of our team; it’s only with their talent, compassion, and creativity that we can reach our full potential as an organization. Whether it’s passing out coffee on the morning run, organizing sock drives, or helping Al and the team with fundraising, there are many ways to donate your time. Join us in spreading the message of hope and solidarity throughout our city.
