PIE Day 2022


March 14 = 3/14 = 3.14 = Pi = π

March 14th is Affirm United’s National Affirming PIE Day. Public, Intentional, and Explicit are the standards to which we hold ourselves when we become Affirming, Welcoming, and Inclusive communities! Affirm United founded this day as an official way to invite people across Canada to show what it means to be inclusive.

You are invited to participate in a PIE DAY pie auction! Get your appetites ready to bid on delicious homemade or high-quality bakery pies in an online silent auction March 6-13 . All the funds raised will be shared between CHEW, an Edmonton agency doing vital work with LGBTQ2S+ youth and young adults.   AND our own CAMP DRAGONFLY (summer and winter camps providing a safe space for trans+ and gender-creative kids).

THE ONLINE PIE AUCTION IS NOW OPEN!

Here’s what to do to participate:

  1. Visit our online auction site: www.32auctions.com/SSUCpieday2022
  2. Click “VIEW ALL ITEMS” to see the pies being auctioned as they are donated (click each pie and scroll further down for descriptions).
  3. “CREATE AN ACCOUNT” by inputting your name, email address and choosing a password in order to bid in the auction. Be sure to check your email for a confirmation email to finish creating your account.
  4. Login to the auction site and bid away! You will be notified when you’ve been outbid so that you can return and challenge your friends to the highest bid! All the bidding concludes Saturday, March 12th at noon.

Should you wish, you may also donate to our fundraiser. Do so by e-transfer (info@smsuc.com) on our website (ssucedmonton.com/donate) or by mail/dropoff at SSUC. Mark all your donations with PIE DAY!

Get your appetites ready to bid on delicious pies and thank you for making this March a meaningful and delicious one!
