Making a difference has never been easier

on April 27, 2012

What if you could make a difference in Asia and Africa with just one click? You wouldn’t have to leave your comfortable chair in front of your computer, let alone the comfort of your home and country. What if just one click raised up to $9 for development initiatives in the areas of health, education, rural and development, community capacity, gender equality, and the environment? Would that be incentive enough to make the click?

Here’s your chance to make a world of difference.

All you need to do is “like” the “World Partnership Walk Edmonton” page on Facebook and you’ll help raise $1 for Asia and Africa. Every dollar we raise locally gets leveraged through partnerships with organizations like the Canadian International Development Agency (aka CIDA). These partner organizations match up to 8x. And just like that — the 10 seconds you took to “like” the WPW Edmonton page means upwards of $9 for Asia and Africa. Pretty good return on investment, eh?

So what are you waiting for…visit World Partnership Walk Edmonton and click “like”. Your generosity will be felt on the other side of the world. Isn’t that a great way to kick off your weekend? I’d say so. And I also say THANK YOU.

Read the document What are you Walking for? for more stories about how we are making a difference one step at a time through the World Partnership Walk.

And if you are inspired to participate in the Walk, which takes place in 10 cities across Canada — and you can even participate in the Virtual Walk if you do not live in one of the cities. You can walk in Toronto, Vancouver, or Victoria on Sunday, May 27, 2012, in London, Montreal, or Regina on Sunday, June 3, 2012, or in Calgary, Edmonton, Kitchener-Waterloo, or Ottawa on Sunday, June 10, 2012.
If you aren’t able to participate in the Walk and want to make a donation instead, you are welcome to sponsor me or donate directly to the Walk. Keep in mind that 100% of your donation goes directly to projects in Asia and Africa; not a single cent is spent on administrative costs. And if you donate online then you will get your tax receipt electronically within a few business days – and there is no minimum donation amount to qualify for a tax receipt. You can donate even if you don’t live in Canada.
And here are some images of my trip to East Africa in 2009. No other place has quite captured my heart in the same way as the African land and the African people. ImageImageImageImage
