Small but Mighty!

I had the pleasure of speaking at Gordon King United Church just before Christmas about the power of hope, and recognizing what we take for granted just before Christmas. The congregation though few in the pew is strong, vibrant, energetic and innovative. I had so much fun! And they’re sending us to the beach!

People experiencing poverty can’t afford the luxury of a quick take off the the beach on a hot day, whether it’s the transportation or swim trunks stopping them from going for a dip or enjoying nature’s bounty lake side at Birds Hill park, this is a small pleasure to many of us that we may take for granted. With contributions over $2000 and $1000 specifically for the beach trip Gordon King is making a day at the beach a reality for many this summer!

Want to help out? Consider having a beach party fundraiser for 1JustCity, ask your friends to get together for a great day at the beach and bring doubles of everything they need. Collect the duplicate swim suits, sunscreen, bug spray, towels, re-usable waterbottles, etc. and we’ll happily arrange to have them picked up for you!

In Solidarity,

Tessa Blaikie
