Thanks to everyone`s generosity and support, VOICE continues to raise awareness of how important local small businesses are in keeping our community vibrant and strong. Many have been severely affected by Covid-19 and we want to continue connecting neighbors with their local shops through this difficult time. We have interviewed 100 local small businesses since April 2020. We tell their stories through our own photography, write-ups and videos. We believe this content introduces people to their local small business owners in their community in a very intimate and meaningful way.
Half of the funds raised through VOICE is donated to a local charity. We are very excited to partner with Ocean Ambassadors Canada. They are a North Shore based, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to save the ocean from the problem of plastic pollution. They set up educational classes to get young people into the water where they can experience by touch and sight what the issues are. By taking youth to the nature and creating a fun learning experience (standup paddling!), it builds relationships and encourages interest and involvement. We want students to learn to love the ocean because at the end of the day, we take care of what we love.
Our goal is to sponsor a class of children that may not have the means to attend otherwise to an Ocean Camp in spring-summer 2021.
If you have any questions, or would like to become a fundraising partner, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: We cannot provide donation receipts for taxes because we are not registered as an official charity yet. We can provide regular receipts. Thank you for your understanding.
