Milan's Birthday Fundraiser

Thanks for dropping in

Milan is a founding member of Canadian Connections Board of Directors. We are thrilled that he has chosen us as the recipient for his birthday donations.

Since we began, in August of 2021, Canadian Connections has:

  • Raised over $90K in private funds and in-kind gifts.
  • Helped 140 refugee families (900+ people) with new and gently used clothing; access to urgent medical attention; applications for government documents and services; navigation of local banking, school, and public transport systems.
  • Aided refugees via our Move Program – sourcing gently used furnishings and housewares. Financial gifts are used to purchase new mattresses and bed linens, stock pantries, rent moving trucks, and secure storage.
  • Advocated for the rights of the most vulnerable to be treated with dignity and respect.

Our next step is to become a registered charity, so that we can continue supporting newcomers and provide tax receipts to donors.

You can help us get there! There are two ways:

  1. Make a donation now, no tax receipt required.
  2. If you require a tax receipt, you can make a donation to us now, which we will return to you before year end when we become a charity. You then have the option of keeping it, or returning it to us and we will issue a receipt.
