This is also a way of honouring our community members who are making a difference in these areas, gaining recognition and support for them.
*Raising Funds* We chose to raise funds during these events for 4 local and 4 global organizations
LOCAL- Cafe Adonai, CURE Canada, Fix Our World Foundation, Christopher Clause's Out of The Cold.
GLOBAL- Make Poverty History, The Stephen Lewis Foundation, David Suzuki Foundation, Oxfam Canada
We are reaching out to others to become a Fix Our World Chapter and mirror our events. Each event will be linked on our Web page to show the struggles and accomplishments each area faces and achieves.
Our Events are annual where we will update each year the changes that have been made and where help is needed both locally and globally in an effort to Fix Our World. Lastly, we are involving local schools, groups, etc.. asking them to make a banner for the issue(s) of their choice to be signed by their staff, students, etc.. and later will be sent to the G8 Leaders at an upcoming G8 summit. This campaign will be ongoing until our leaders commit to the Millennium Development Goals.
