Something special is happening in Guelph…

Guelph is making the news this week.  With heads of business stepping up, and everyday people doing all they can, Guelph is standing out as a city that is going above and beyond to do something about the current crisis that we as a planet find ourselves in.

Many, many people are asking ‘How can we help?’.  Well there are many ways, and there are many groups as well that need all of us to contribute.  A website has been set up that is outlining all that is happening in this sphere in the city of Guelph.  When the families begin arriving, the work will really begin, and this will become a vital resource.

It’s now on the sidebar to the right, and is a great resource for all information regarding Guelph, and refugees:

Aaaaand….we’re back up!

We were able to reach our goal of sponsoring a family to come to Guelph! The response has exceeded our expectations. Rather than turn away support and d73072891_thumbnailonations, we are really excited to continue our efforts and sponsor a second family to come to Guelph!

Thank you very much for your continued support!

We are awaiting the arrival of our first sponsor family. We don’t have an arrival date yet, but you can check our website, Facebook or Twitter page for updates and stories along the way.

In the meantime, the MCC page is back up and running, hit the ‘donate money’ button to the right if you’d like to partner with us to welcome even more refugees into our community.

Big Fundraising Update!

thank-youWe officially reached our goal through MCC fundraising!  There is still a small amount of funds to be raised for the family, but the ‘official’ online support form is now gone.

Our final fundraiser will be this Sunday at the Guelph Community Santa Claus Parade (in front of the Children’s Art Factory) at the corner of London and Woolwich streets.  We will have warm drinks and snacks, so bring some change!  More info regarding that later.

We would like to say hearty Thank You to everyone who helped make this happen.  The money raising portion of this project is now drawing to an end, and the real work will begin shortly.  The paperwork is working its way through the system, and we now know a few details about the family (we will share everything as soon as we can).  We will need stuff for this family, and we will soon have more details on what exactly we need more of.

Keep up with us here, or at our facebook page, and/or twitter account as we continue this journey to help one journey come to an end.
