1JustCity’s Escape Poverty Challenge

The goal of this event is to raise awareness about 1JustCity’s work serving Winnipeg’s underloved. We want to show you the impact we can all have by building a better city together.

Between November 14-18, the Escape Poverty Challenge will engage participants with a combination of challenges and opportunities to earn points by interacting with the community, collecting donate-able items and raising funds. This event will promote a cooperative effort, encourage community engagement and create a better Winnipeg!

Start each day with a video — we’ll post them each morning at 5 and share them on social media! Follow us now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Ask your friends and family to participate in the Escape Poverty Challenge! There will be several drop-off locations across the city. Every participant will be eligible to win prizes on social media. Just tag @1JustCity #EPC along with the appropriate hashtag for the day.

Each challenge was created to bring awareness to struggles that people in poverty face every day.

Thank you to our sponsors:
