Though she had stepped into a new unknown adventure in her career, she started to sense God planting new dreams inside her heart again—dreams that would combine her love for creativity, for Jesus and for the marginalized.
In 2020, we launched our brand-new, online fundraising platform. We asked Canadians to join us in a goal of raising $100,000 for our COVID-19 relief fund through online fundraisers. And we were blown away by the response—together raising over $105,000! We wanted to introduce you to some of our amazing Canadian fundraisers and give you a peek into the creative ways they set out to bring practical help and hope to children and families in poverty during COVID-19.
We could all probably use an inspiring quote as we welcome this new year. We’ve created these graphics just for you—to download and share, and to inspire you as we continue fighting poverty in Jesus’ name. Which one is your favourite? ____ 1. “But let justice roll on like river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.” […]
We’re finally in the last moments of 2020.
