Make a Will Campaign launch

Join Central Okanagan Hospice’s Make a Will Campaign by logging onto www.iwillpledge.ca today to get started.

Fifty per cent of Canadians don’t have a will, a fact the Central Okanagan Hospice Association (COHA) wants to change.

The COHA is committed to changing views on death and dying, by opening conversations and providing information about wills and health care planning.

You can join COHA’s Make a Will Campaign by logging onto www.iwillpledge.ca today to get started.

Those who sign up will receive an information package, list of professionals who are available to help, our gift of a reminder magnet and other valuable information.

Making a will is an opportunity to ensure that our wishes are carried out, and not left to others to make decisions, even after we’re gone.

Consider these disturbing facts: If you don’t make or update your will, others may decide who raises your children; others may take your pet to a shelter; and family members may have difficult and sometimes adversarial decisions to make about property and personal items if no direction was given in a will.

The COHA has also organized a public forum with tax, estate, legal and health experts for Oct. 22, 7:30 p.m., at the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre in Kelowna.

This will be a webcasted event as participants will be provided information and an opportunity to ask questions of the panel of professionals.
