We're in awe of our incredible community of donors. Whether you donated or lent your voice to help spread the word on #GivingTuesday, you've made a major impact in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. Thank you!
The results are in: A total of $4,522 was raised to grow our community and support core members (people with intellectual disabilities) in their work, volunteer, or day program activities.
Here's what this translates to every month... week.. and day at L'Arche Toronto:
- It takes $1,105 to provide one individual with meaningful community participation for one month.
- It takes $276 to provide one individual with meaningful community participation for one week.
- It takes $55 to provide on individual with meaningful community participation for one day.
...that's 82 meaningful days! Your donations are going the distance -- touching lives by strengthening our services and programs (such as the Work Support Program) -- and building inclusive spaces in the workplace.
...we, the people of this earth, learn to be with people with intellectual disabilities, not just wanting to look after them and give money for their well-being. By living together we will help them to discover their fundamental value. They have gifts to offer our societies and the world. - Jean Vanier, Founder of L'Arche
You help us transform lives every day! Here's a snapshot of how we spend our days:
