Harvey, Cut Your Hair
I have not had a haircut since February 2020! Now it’s been a year and some of those around me agree…it’s about time! To make it worthwhile, Penny and I have turned it into a fundraiser along with Compassion Canada, an organization we have been involved with for about ten years now. We sponsor kids in three countries. In 2013, we visited Uganda and Kenya, witnessing first-hand the work Compassion is doing at the community level. Since then, we have volunteered at numerous functions around Alberta to raise awareness of Compassion’s work and sign-up new child sponsors. So, if enough people contribute enough money…the long hair comes off!
We’re doing this to bring much-needed relief to children and families living in poverty who have been impacted by COVID-19. And we’d like to invite you along on the journey!
Unfortunately, this crisis has the potential to undo at least 10 years of progress toward poverty alleviation in developing countries.
This prediction is heartbreaking. However, we refuse to let it become a reality. Together with your support, we are partnering with Compassion to equip the local church across the globe to provide immediate relief to the most vulnerable communities among us. Through the COVID-19 relief fund, Compassion is seeking to help restore what COVID-19 has destroyed through the urgent provision of critical needs like:
Emergency Food Packs – Provides families with food packs that include essentials like rice, oils, oats, milk, corn and meat every day for two months.
Hygiene Kits – Provides families with items to keep them healthy like face masks, gloves, soap, disinfectant, cleaning products and sanitary items for women.
Rent Assistance – Helps cover rent for those who cannot otherwise stay in their homes because of loss of work.
Home Reconstruction – Helps reconstruct and furnish a three-bedroom home for a family who has lost theirs due to natural disasters while in the midst of a global pandemic.
Will you join us in helping restore what COVID-19 has destroyed for those in poverty?
Our goal is to raise $5000 by March 15th. We have started the ball rolling by contributing the first $500…now it’s up to you. Any contribution helps…$10, $50, $100, $500 or whatever amount you feel led to contribute. Compassion will send you a tax receipt on any contribution of $10 or more.
