Help Mesrak raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

Dear friends and family - I hope this message finds you all well and safe!

This year, P2P needs your support more than ever!

Similar to many other charities, the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting necessary restrictions around public gatherings have created a serious challenge for People to People Canada (P2P)’s fundraising eventsThe good news is events like the Scotia Toronto Waterfront Marathon (STWM) which is our primary fundraising venue, has responded to the challenge by pivoting the event to the virtual world. 

I have signed up to raise funds through the 2021 STWM 5k Virtual Challenge that will take place between Oct 1st – 31st and I am once again asking for your support!


Please support me in reaching my $6,000 fundraising goal for P2P's Orphans Support and Community Health Programs

  

With your generous support, P2P’s sponsorship program has transformed the lives of over 600+ Orphans over 21 years, many of whom have become self-sufficient and give back to society. Please take a few moments to watch this short video. 

 

The most recent UNICEF report shows that there are still very large numbers of OVCs (Orphan and Vulnerable Children) in most urban centers in Ethiopia. Many of these children desperately await access to the life-changing opportunity the children supported by P2P and similar charities have. With the generous support of people like you, we are committed to continuing to brighten the future of as many of these OVCs as our resources can reach.  P2P’s Orphan Sponsorship Program is delivered on the ground in Ethiopia by our partner organizations HIDO and HOH. P2P also continues to engage in Community Health and Mental Well-being advocacy and education initiatives in the Greater Toronto area.

 

Thank you in advance for those of you who have been supporting me & P2P year after year! If this is your first time, welcome to the P2P family and let's transform children's lives together!


TOGETHER WE WILL GIVE HOPE FOR A BETT ER TOMORROW FOR THE LEAST FORTUNATE
