Welcome to our fundraising page. Ewan and I have been selected as Cuso International volunteers to the Philippines!
Cuso International is a development organization that works to reduce poverty and inequality through the efforts of highly skilled volunteers, collaborative partnerships and compassionate donors.
We will be volunteering on 2 amazing projects in Manila for 6 months starting late January 2019. We both feel very privileged to be able to give back by sharing our skills, experience and passions to help people gain more skills and build capacity for development and growth.
For me it is a pleasure to have been selected to work with the Philippine Red Cross as a Volunteer Management Advisor. Having worked with former refugees for the Red Cross in NZ being able to continue in a role of developing people aligns with my deep value of supporting people to flourish.
Ewan will be volunteering as a Business Development Specialist, helping local entrepreneurs launch and grow their businesses.
We have had a very enjoyable 2 years of travel, work and study overseas and have found ourselves re-energised and wanting to give back.
As part of our journey with Cuso International, we are fundraising $4000 to help sustain their vital work and enable them to mobilize volunteers, like ourselves. We hope you will consider making a gift today in support of our campaign. Together we can give hope and change lives!
The festive season is here and it is time to think of others. Right now, for every $1 you donate the Canadian Government will provide $9.That means a $25 contribution becomes $250 and a $100 gift becomes $1000! Imagine what can be done with that!!!
