An evening of story-telling
in support of

Access to Justice for Youth

Dear friends and supporters of Peacebuilders,

Peacebuilders would like to thank those who were able to attend or support our recent event, a ‘Dinner for Their Future.’ We welcomed three guest speakers, including the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, Louise Arbour C.C, and David Clayton-Thomas.The event was an incredible success and we want to thank all those who helped make it a memorable occasion.

During the evening we shared a special announcement regarding our fundraising campaign!

At our November 19th “Dinner for Their Future” we announced that a generous Donor will match every gift up to $50,000!

We have now received donations of $17,000! Help us reach the remaining  $33,000 by December 31st!
 
 As you approach the holidays and tax year-end, we hope that you will consider supporting, and include us among your philanthropic priorities. Please help us reach our goal by donating at:  www.theirfuture.ca
