Home of Grace: Bike, Hike and Trike Fundraiser | Joel Martin

$0 of $600 raised

This Thanksgiving between October 3rd to 12th I will be moving for Home of Grace Care Centre in Kenya.

I have been lucky to visit Home Of Grace Care Centre twice and participated on the Canadian board for several years. The staff do a wonderful job of caring for the children at the home as well as reaching out to the community.

I'm going to ride my old school banana seat bike which was definitely not designed for long distances in support of the Home Of Grace feeding program that will assist their neighbours who are in need. My goal is to raise $600 to feed 8 families for one month. 

Please give generously and I will pedal furiously!

Please join us to raise funds to support Home of Grace and its neighbours.

Like Canada, Kenya closed down schools and businesses on March 13. The closing of schools has meant that not only are the children missing out on their education, but they are missing out on daily food as well.  With the lockdown, jobs have disappeared, markets have closed and food has become scarce and expensive. Families are struggling even more than ever. There is no social safety net in Kenya — no unemployment insurance, no food banks.

Home of Grace has begun to distribute emergency food hampers to the most desperate of these families through its Community Emergency Fund. But the money needed to meet the demand isn't there. This event will be focused on funding the Community Emergency Fund, in order to support neighbourhood families during the pandemic.

We have set a goal of raising $6,500 - Enough to feed 100 families for a month. Please join us in stopping hunger in the face of poverty. Sponsor a participant for the sake of the families and children in that part of the world.
