The Crohn's and Colitis Canada DIY Challenge

DIY Challenge


Are you one of many people who, during this global pandemic, has had to learn new skills?

If so, we're challenging YOU to share with us your Do-It-Yourself projects on social media using the hashtag #ICanUCanDIY and to donate your savings from having learned this new skill to Crohn's and Colitis Canada's COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund!

All donations received will go directly to help keep key Crohn's and Colitis Canada initiatives running throughout these unprecedented times.

Once you've shown us what you're making, be sure to challenge your friends and family! We want to see how you've managed to learn a new skill while inspiring others to step out of their comfort zones, too.

Here's some ideas on how you can use your DIY skills to find new savings:

  • Cut your hair!
  • Bake some bread
  • Groom your pet
  • Try woodworking
  • Be your own plumber

The opportunities are almost endless! Join us as we rise together to the #ICanUCanDIY Challenge as we work to help bring to life a world without Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis. By passing on our new savings, we can all help to continue funding research as scientists search for the cures to irritable bowel diseases.
