fundraising update.

After watching and posting the video 'The Miniature Earth,' I was struck by how blessed we are here in North America... no matter what the media tells us about the economy. We have beds to sleep in, food in our fridge, and a roof over our head - all of our basic needs are met, day in and day out. For that, we are incredibly lucky; it reminds me of a Scotiabank advertisement that read, "You're richer than you think."

Many of us are also blessed richly with various communities, connections, and a unique network of relationships. Since I have started sharing this journey with others, I have been amazed at the support and encouragement shown to me!

In terms of fundraising, I have surpassed the halfway mark to my goal of $2,000.00. Thank you to those who have generously contributed! I have been blown away by the generousity that I have experienced, and it is very deeply appreciated.
(Spoiler alert: shameless plug ahead!)

Just an FYI... This Friday, February 6th I will be hosting a fundraising event at the Maranatha Christian Reformed Church in York, Ontario. Doors open at 6:30 pm, and refreshments and desserts will be offered before we show Fireproof, a Christian film about a firefighter attempting to save his marriage. I will also be giving a short presentation about the Beyond Borders program and my plans for Ukraine.
Admission is free, and there will be an opportunity to donate to my fundraising efforts. Please contact me if you are interested in attending!
