December 3 is the annual observation of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.  It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness in every aspect of political, social, economic, and cultural life.  COVID-19 has deepened pre-existing inequalities exposing the extent of exclusion and highlighting that work on disability inclusion is imperative.

We are going Zoom again this year for our December 6, Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women annual fundraising event.  On Monday, December 6th  at 6 pm, we will be providing a Zoom presentation, that will aid in fundraising for the Bow Valley Women’s Emergency Shelter and the Awo Taan Healing Lodge Emergency Shelter.

Your support for these two agencies is vital, especially in today’s conditions.  We are counting on our labour partners to support generously as well as participate in the evening’s presentation.  As you sit in the comfort of your warm home, maybe think of those who are not able to have such a luxury. Maybe consider those who have had to flee their home for their safety, or their children’s.  We must never forget about the most vulnerable in our midst, and our ability to come alongside them.

Without having a ticket price, and a silent auction, which is how the funds were raised in the past, you can send your donations directly to the agencies, or send to us and we will be pleased to forward your donation to them on your behalf. If you would kindly let us know that you made a donation, at that would be helpful in our event tally.

Also, we will be offering a ‘door’ prize that is only available if you are in attendance at the time of the draw.
