About Campaignends 31 Oct 2020, 11:59 PM
Because of COVID-19, funds have declined. Hence, we wanted to do our part by creating an online fundraising campaign in support of the Spare Your Change For Suzy campaign. Suzy is the nostalgic icon that represents cerebral palsy, a physical disability that results from brain damage. Did you know that October is World Cerebral Palsy Month?
We had an idea to reach out to donors like you by sharing a bit of our day-to-day work. GROW is a sheltered workshop for our adult trainees who are not able to find open employment. We do vocational training for them, in hopes that they will one day find employment or be able to earn an income.
We have started IT skills training. Some of our trainees will work on simple designing work such as stickers and greeting cards. These will be sold at our Pushcarts located at CPAS and at 2 hospitals (currently closed due to COVID-19).
We want to do more for them and we need your help!
You can help to turn our ideas into reality.
Your small donation today to our campaign will be doubled by Tote Board and the Government. Thank you!
