The jackpot starts at $25,000 with proceeds funding conservation projects in Ontario
TORONTO, April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This Earth Day, Ontarians can help nature thrive and win big with WWF-Canada's first-ever 50/50 lottery at WWF5050Lottery.ca.
The progressive jackpot, which runs from April 22 to May 27, 2021 has a minimum guaranteed prize of $25,000. Those who purchase tickets by May 6 at 11:59 p.m. ET will also be entered for a chance to win an early bird draw for $500.
Tickets are available online at 10 tickets for $10, 40 tickets for $20 and 150 tickets for $40. And when you win, nature wins too. Proceeds will go to WWF-Canada to support conservation efforts in Ontario that restore habitat, combat climate change and help conserve a growing number of species at risk in the province.
WWF-Canada’s annual CN Tower Climb for Nature has been cancelled due to COVID-19 and this new lottery is expected to play a crucial role in keeping vital conservation projects running.
Scott Sandison, WWF-Canada’s vice-president of community giving, says:
“It’s WWF-Canada’s mission to create a world where nature and people thrive—and in that spirit, our 50/50 lottery gives people the chance to win big and support conservation efforts that benefit wildlife and habitats right here in Ontario. We are excited to watch the jackpot grow each week and give our supporters an opportunity to have fun while helping nature.”
