The Red Deer Hospice Society live butterfly fundraiser is back for its third year! Purchase a live butterfly to release in remembrance of a loved one, to celebrate a milestone in their life or to give hope to someone who needs it, all while supporting end of life care in Central Alberta.
Butterflies will be distributed to those that ordered via curbside pick up on June 24, 2022 here at Red Deer Hospice (99 Arnot Ave). If placed an order, please check your email for full pick up instructions that were sent out Monday June 20th, 2022.
The release of butterflies is a healing experience that can comfort family and friends who have experienced a loss. They are also often considered beautiful representations of the various stages of life and demonstrate that despite adversity, simple changes and time can make life even more beautiful than before.
Every year we host a memorial butterfly release to remember and celebrate with the families who have had someone journey through Hospice in the previous year. We knew there were people in our community who wanted to continue the tradition as well as celebrate new chapters in their lives. We are honored to share this tradition that is so special to Hospice while also creating a greater connection with our community.
Butterfly purchases do not qualify for a charitable tax receipt.
