Giving Tuesday: 3 December 2019

 

For several years now, charities have been promoting Giving Tuesday. CanaDares Society has been participating in this new tradition, which was conceived as a sociological balance to “Black Friday” - a symptom of the consumerism "virus" which is so prominent at this time of year.

Each year end, CanaDares Society has always published a “Wish List” - a list of things that our children in residence need or would be thrilled to have. This is how it works:

Make a donation to CanaDares Society* on behalf of your children, grandchildren or any other special people in your life - perhaps that special person who “has everything”. 

In exchange for your donation, CanaDares will send you a colourful printed gift card with a picture of what the funds from that donation will purchase.  You fill in the name of the person for whom you have made the donation, sign the card, and gift it.

Note that some of the choices might represent a major purchase, like a swing set, bunk beds or a second school bus. Other choices might be an item which we need for each or many of our children, like shoes and clothes. Remembering that we now have thirty needy children, we ask that you make a donation at your comfort level, which is why the cards read “A donation has been made in your name towards _______”

Last year, our Wish List focused on items that we needed to outfit the classrooms in our new school, like story books, desks, window coverings and swing sets.  As we are continuing to expand our school, you can donate towards any of those items! The latest two classrooms are finished but need to be furnished for the start of the new school year on January 6th.

And the Climb-N-Slide which we designed and had built in 2018 is so popular, that we need a second one!

The year before last, we requested donations towards a school bus, for collecting the children from around the village who attend our school. We are so grateful to have received enough funds to purchase that bus, which is now making two runs, morning and afternoon, filled to capacity. This means that within this next year, we will need to purchase a second school bus.

Additionally this year we have a dairy project which we are 
undertaking as an income-generating initiative. Your gift could go towards the purchase of a (pregnant) milk cow, milking equipment like buckets and stainless milk jugs, or the renovation of our cow barn.
And we have recently received nine new children who all need shoes, clothes, school supplies and bunk beds.
