SPEND: A Virtual Brushstrokes For Hope

Covid has changed most things since 2020 – including our annual fundraiser!

For many years we’ve been hosting an annual event called Brushstrokes for Hope. What began as a small event raising $5K grew and grew to where last year we raised $63,000! These funds brought huge help to our global partners and were so very grateful.

This year -2021 – another Covid year – while we can’t host a safe, in-person Brushstrokes for Hope event – we’ve come up with a virtual equivalent!

Monday to Friday – November 1-5, 2021

SPEND: a virtual fundraiser for children living in extreme poverty

SPEND each day with our global partners!

Every day we will share a new video our Global Partners have filmed and update you on what is happening.

We invite you to SPEND a few minutes learning and hearing their updates and then SPEND a little generosity to help the children we stand with.

GOAL: $25,000

Covid continues to bring to our global partners new challenges as they do all they can to provide for the well-being of the children they care for. The lockdown has brought many issues to the children. There was an increasing amount of domestic abuse happening and increased mental and emotional health issues.

Thankfully, the children are back in school where they are able to receive emotional and spiritual support, along with a vital education and daily meals.

The monies raised through SPEND will be used by our global partners to make the improvements needed to continue to operate the schools in a Covid era and keep providing for the children’s well-being.

  • Daily food and drinking water to help nourish the children’s physical health.
  • Help their communities through care packages to the most desperate families.
  • Continue implementing washroom and sanitation improvements
  • Well-being programs – mentor groups, counseling, extra curriculum activities to aid in the emotional, spiritual, and physical care of our students and families
  • Improved health and social work programs
