"And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." (Paul McCartney)
Do you want to be part of an exciting adventure? Do you want to do something that will make the world turn a little more softly and gently?
At Reaching for Rainbows we are involved in a unique project whereby, every year, we gather in 30 vulnerable girls, six to nine-years-old, and welcome them into a program that builds relationships, encourages empowerment and instills a sense of belonging. Our girls stay under our wing for four wonderful years, attending four afternoons a week for eight months of the year. In our special place, they learn through play, guided and coached by three amazing staff and a team of 25 volunteers. Research has demonstrated time and time again that children learn most effectively through play. Our girls are recommended to us by local schools and social agencies because they represent some of the most fragile children in a community where 37% of the children have been deemed as being at risk.
We invite you to come along with us on this incredible journey by donating via Canada Helps. The love you make will shine in the eyes of our wee girls and make your heart grow bigger.
