Big News! Fundraising Update!


How exactly do you type a drumroll?? Because this post is certainly worthy of one. The Bloorcourt Sponsors are excited to announce that we have surpassed our $50K year-end fundraising goal and reached over $58,000!!! That means in just 30 days we raised $38,000!  A HUGE thank you goes out to all of you who contributed and helped make this happen. We couldn’t have done it without your help. Whether you donated, baked a carrot cake, put out a collection jar at your workplace, shared or tweeted our 30day-$30K Campaign posts to spread the word, we thank you for your big heart and generous spirit.

As some of you may have heard, we have been matched with a family of 3. The family has been approved by Lifeline Syria but now they must undergo health and security screenings. While we are waiting for the final approval by the Canadian Government we will keep busy getting ready to welcome the family, find them housing and prepare to support them as they get familiar with Toronto and Canadian culture, visit the dentist and doctor, improve on English language skills, start school, find employment and become inspiring and involved members of our community. It could be up to 6 months before the family arrives but we are hoping for it to be expedited. Please stay tuned to hear about new developments and how you can support Bloorcourt Sponsors as we enter the next phase of the sponsorship process and prepare for the family’s arrival.
