This October we challenge you to give up something essential to your life to help raise awareness and show your support for newcomers to Canada who have given up everything they know to start a new life.
PeaceGeeks is proud to host our annual #GiveItUp4Peace campaign from October 1- 31st. Participants give up one thing for the entire month of October (coffee, a bed, driving their car, etc.) to support individuals who have had to give up everything to start a new life in Canada. By participating in #GiveItUp4Peace you help support our key projects focused on newcomers to Canada and immigrant services. To find out more about these projects go to www.peacegeeks.org.
PeaceGeeks builds digital tools to empower communities in the pursuit of peace. PeaceGeeks collaborates with communities to put technology tools and digital literacy in the hands of citizens, peacebuilders, human rights defenders, and humanitarian responders. We've led projects that build safer and more stable societies, respond to humanitarian crises, connect displaced and conflict-affected communities, amplify discourse for peace, and share critical knowledge. At PeaceGeeks, we operate on the principle of inspiring local action to solve local problems, with a vision to make peace a lived reality for everyone.
So, what will you give up?
