LowestRates.ca today announced its intentions to give back this holiday season with its #ensureameal social media campaign in support of the Yonge Street Mission.

The company is donating $1 to the venerable Toronto charity every time someone shares or retweets the hashtag #ensureameal, with the goal of providing 500 holiday meals to Torontonians in need.

“The Yonge Street Mission has been on the front lines of hunger for over 100 years in Toronto, providing care and support for our city’s most disadvantaged, and we know during the holidays they need our support even more,” said Justin Thouin, CEO of LowestRates Inc.

The Yonge Street Mission says the cost of a holiday meal and care is $3.11, effectively making the total dollar goal of the #ensureameal holiday drive $1555.

That means that with just over 1500 shares or retweets, LowestRates.ca will reach its target of providing 500 holiday meals this December. To learn more about the campaign and see how it’s progressing, Canadians can visit the #ensureameal official page.

“Canadians spent an average of $1810 on the holidays last year, yet it only takes $3.11 to provide food and care for someone in need. With our #ensureameal holiday drive we want to show that giving isn’t just really important, it’s also really easy,” said Thouin.

As a special holiday gift to its customers, from December 1 to January 31 LowestRates.ca is also automatically entering those who get an insurance policy through the site into a draw to win a year’s worth of car insurance for their vehicle, up to $2000.
