WE CANADIANS STICK TOGETHER
The forest fires and floods of 2021 is the largest disaster in BC’s history. Homes were lost. Lives shattered. Communities gone. Businesses crashed. Memories burned and washed away. This level of disaster is not something anyone can prepare for.
Hence why a group of international, national and regional musicians, celebrities, dignitaries and everyday people have come together for the Hell or High Water Concert and Telethon.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” Helen Keller

Q and A
Is there an urgent reason to give? 2021 forest fires and floods were the largest recorded disaster in British Columbia history. Thousands displaced, communities destroyed, homes lost, livelihoods drained… so yes there is an urgency like no other before.
Why are you asking me? We think it is obvious. It is either because your business has BC and/or Canada all over it and has made a positive impression on our group over time or someone in our circles talks very highly of you and told us we should reach out to you.
How will my donations be used? All proceeds collected, including those made online and through the telethon, will go directly to Rotary Merritt who will then work with Rotaries throughout the devastated areas to disperse the funds to communities and individuals affected by the natural disasters. Sponsorships of the Live Concert may be partially used to support the event with the rest going directly to Rotary Merritt for dispersal to those in need
How long will my brand be visible on this website? The Hell or High Water website will be online generating awareness for months after the telethon. However, the website will pivot post event to better represent the needs of the affected communities.
What about Covid? The show will go on. The virtual Hell or High Water telethon has prepared, as best they can, for each outcome. Entertainment is committed. Technology is our friend.
Will I have a say over where you use my gift? Absolutely, during the process of donating online you have an option of selecting which affected area/community you would like to contribute funds to.
How do I know your nonprofit is trustworthy? The Rotary Club of Canada is one of the most trusted non profits in Canada. There are over 700. What we most like about them is that their fundraising efforts go directly back into the community and/or region they serve. No middle man. No big administrative fees. Just hard working volunteers who live, work and play in their communities.
Why your fundraiser? Good question. There are so many worthy causes to support. However, with this particular event no one saw the “Hell or High Water” coming. No family, no home, no business, no animal was prepared for the massive destruction. Even our highways were destroyed. There are no long running support systems in place for the 2021 fire and flood casualties of climate change. There is no, long running, annual fundraising event for BC’s worst disaster on record. These people are our friends and neighbours. These people are Canadians. And we Canadians, when we hear, “Help”, we run towards it. So… we are running towards it. Do you want to go for a run?
