  • Make the Switch Information Night and Documentary Advanced Screening

    Did you know that you can use your energy bill to help wildlife in need?
    Join us on October 13th from 6 – 9 at Cardel Theatre to learn more about how you can help wildlife at our Make the Switch Information Night and advanced documentary screening. As a charity partner of Sponsor Energy Inc., CWRS receives 50% of the profit made every kWh of electricity and every GJ of gas consumed by their customers who have chosen us as their charity of choice. SponsorEnergy is dedicated to helping charities in Calgary, and to facilitate that, they have offered a tremendous special: from October 1, 2016 – January 1, 2017, for every person or business that signs up and selects CWRS as their community partner, Sponsor Energy will direct 100% of the profit from their energy consumption to CWRS (for those months) and 50% each month after! Switching to Sponsor Energy is easy, and can help save wildlife! To find out more and to have all your questions answered we urge you to attend. You can even bring your energy bill to see how Sponsor Energy’s rates compare to your current provider!
    1 home making the switch will feed 50 duckling patients for 2 weeks.
    1 business making the switch will provide food, medical treatment, and care for the rehabilitation of 1 patient.
    We will also be providing an advanced screening of a behind the scenes documentary that was filmed by Shaw this summer showcasing our volunteers, our staff and some of the amazing patients we had including owls, fawns, skunks and hawks. It’s going to be a fun night that showcases our fabulous volunteers, our hardworking staff, our supportive funders and most importantly the wild patients that are the heart of our mission and work.
