On February 20, 2016, John Weber and I will be walking 5 KM in support of Youth Haven Barrie, in an event called Coldest Night Of The Year.
John and I are each hoping to raise a minimum of $200, and for every donation of $20 or higher there is a tax receipt. Why not donate today and get another tax break for 2015!
This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to join together and make a difference. This even is held all across Canada, with participants in Newfoundland and Yellowknife, Vancouver and Barrie. Last year there were 240 walkers locally and over $250,000 was raised. Wouldn’t it be great to surpass that total this year? But wait, what if you don’t know what Youth Haven does?
Youth Haven Barrie is a safe place for Simcoe County teens and young adults to go if they are struggling with poverty and homelessness. Youth Haven partners with local schools, businesses and churches to meet the needs of the guests. Youth receive hot meals, a place to sleep, counselling, hot showers, blankets, hygiene products, help with job searches and encouragement, love and support. If we can help our youth at this stage in their lives then they have hope for a better future.
So please, visit our donation pages and support us with our fundraising goal as we walk on the Coldest Night of The Year.
