Buy a Day for Peace to support the cause for peace - and honour a special person or day. All funds received by Ploughshares Calgary are eligible for a tax receipt.

Each day purchased costs $25, and will be marked in colour on our Buy a Day display calendar that we have up at most of our special public events.

Buy a Day donations will receive a tax-creditable receipt. There are four options:

  1. Simply buy a day.
  2. Buy a day for a special person and receive a Buy a Day postcard to give to that person on a special occasion.
  3. Buy a day to honour a peace hero on his/her birthday.
  4. Buy a day to honour a special day such as Earth Day.

Note: If you buy a day for someone and provide us with their address we will mail them a postcard on your behalf to arrive on their special day.
