3 things to share with you today.
1. We are very excited to announce that the Air Canada foundation has donated $10,000 to this cause. This amount has yet to show up on our total on the MCC page (as of October 20th), but we’re well on our way to meeting our goal, which we’re very excited about.
2. We have had a bit of a hiccup with some of our support that has come via paypal. Due to the political nature of the word ‘Syria’ in the United States, paypal has rejected payments for a cause with ‘Syria’ in its name, so all our early donations from people who used paypal have been reversed. If you gave via paypal, please consider re-sending your gift to this so that it gets counted towards the total!
3. The children of this community are stepping up to the plate and doing what they can to make a difference. This has been an excellent opportunity to share with our kids the importance of helping those who need it, and they have really come through. Last weekend, a group of kids gathered a bunch of books and toys and sold them, raising $102.50 towards the goal! More initiatives are happening just like this, and we’ll tell you all about them.
Our fundraising goal is coming ever closer, with generous people from all walks of life really making a difference. News should be coming shortly regarding the family that will, before long, be moving into our community. Keep coming back here for more news.
