The amount on my tax receipt does not match the total amount of my donation. Is this normal?

How do the GOLD, SILVER, and BRONZE Challenge types differ?

How often you can abstain from drinking depends on the type of Challenge. The Gold Challenge means that you cannot drink alcohol during the entire month of February. The Silver Challenge allows you to drink on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, but not on weekends. The Bronze Challenge allows you to drink on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, but not on weekdays.

How do I fill in my calendar?

When filling out your calendar, you indicate whether or not you drank the day before or the days before, if you forgot to fill in several days at once.

You can choose between two options, depending on the day you choose: “I was sober” or “Oh no, I drank alcohol”. Simply choose the option that best suits your situation, and your day’s calendar is filled.

Only you have access to your personal calendar, and you cannot update it on the same day.

What happens if I forget to fill in my calendar?

Your calendar can be filled in at any time. The calendar boxes can be modified at any time, as long as the most recent day has passed.

What happens if I drink on a day I shouldn’t?

We won’t hold it against you. The 28 Days Challenge is yours to do at your own pace.

You can also add an extra day to the Challenge, or donate more to compensate for the day you drank alcohol. The choice is yours.

Can I complete a registration or sponsorship for someone else?

Yes. Donations or payments can be made for different people using the same credit card. Before registering or sponsoring for someone else, you must log out of the platform.
