We’re fundraising again

We’ve submitted applications to sponsor two generations of an Afghan family, currently living in Turkey. The government sets the amount that we have to raise, and as they treat this as two families (so thinking of two set-up costs, two apartments, etc.) the amount is substantial. We have $30,000 to go. We could use your help.

We’ve made our apple crumbles for the third year in a row, and they are delicious. They’re available for sale, frozen, just ready for your next family gathering or dinner. Contact hansencathya@gmail.com to order. They’re just $10 each for the family size and $25 for a new party size.

We’re also doing the “Ride for Refuge.” You could sponsor an individual on the team or the whole team. Tax receipts for donations over $20. Go to https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/TeamFundraisingPage.aspx?teamID=873835&langPref=en-CA and click on “donate”. The ride is coming up in a week, so donate soon!

OR…you could donate the old fashioned way and get a tax receipt for anything $20 or more. Details here: https://erinrefugeeaction.ca/donate/

Thank you in advance for any donations. If now is not the right time to donate, perhaps you’d consider volunteering with us. We need volunteer drivers and general help. Contact erinrefugeeaction@gmail.com for more details.
