When it comes to raising funds for Development and Peace – Caritas Canada, our dedicated members are full of creativity!
Over the years, we have seen all kinds of initiatives, from bake sales to fair trade products, to cheese sales; from schools organizing walks and auctions, to young people participating in a THINKfast, every initiative is precious and every gesture counts.
It is thanks to your enthusiasm and generosity that we can build a world of justice by supporting the initiatives of our sisters and brothers in the Global South.
Here are some tips and resources to help you organize a fundraiser in your community.
THINKfast is an interactive learning experience designed for young people. You can choose from a collection of activities and reflections that will help you and your group experience the challenges of poverty and injustice in concrete ways.
By participating in this 25-hour educational and fundraising fast you stand in solidarity with those in the Global South who need our support, both through financial support to projects they are leading, and through a greater understanding of the structures that perpetuate poverty and injustice. In one day, you take a stand against oppression and directly support programs in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East that bring about peace, justice, and development.
