A HUNDRED MERCIES
November 2013: Have you ever had an experience where someone has paid it forward and you have received the gift offered? Like – going through the drive thru at Tim’s and only to be told that the previous driver already paid for your coffee/tea – Surprise! Surprise! And what a gracious smile on your face and there in your heart a definite degree of delight, maybe even a tiny muttering of Awesome!
Of course if the driver ahead of you had not paid for your coffee, you still would have had one because you have the resources to do so.
At EveryStudentMatters we know a Kenyan lady who is currently attending the Fall Term at Mount Saint Vincent University at Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. She is a single mother of four and was accepted at MSVU providing she could pay her fees. First term fees have been paid because a few friends cared enough, but so far there are no funds for second term.
If we found a hundred hearts willing to offer just $5 a month for the next six months (just $30 from November 2013 to April 2014) we would pretty much have enough funds to enable her to continue going to school.
One hundred people or groups of people (such as a family, etc.), making a gracious donation of just $5 a month would be A HUNDRED MERCIES granted to this very determined mother to get a university-based education and to care for her children at the same time.
We kindly ask you might consider offering this mercy to another and then you could add to your humanitarian resumé/CV that you are a supporter of EveryStudentMatters.
To meet this lady, whose name is MERCY FAVOUR, please visit website www.everychildcounts.ca and click on Mercy.
You can make a deposit in person or an e-transfer to Account #520 3211 Branch 00003 at the Royal Bank or e-mail funds to email@example.com or send by postal mail and join others who are currently among the ONE HUNDRED MERCIES we are hoping for.
If you choose to share with us please add your name, and we kindly ask that you e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
COUNTING ON EVERY
SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER
IN NOVA SCOTIA
AND EVERY STUDENT IN NOVA SCOTIA TO SHARE JUST A QUARTER BY SEPTEMBER 16 (OR LATER IF NECESSARY)
AND TOGETHER WE CAN SAVE THOUSANDS
OF CHILDREN IN SOMALIA-KENYA
We call it the QUARTOONIE CHALLENGE…
Each classroom teacher multiply number of students x one quarter ($0.25) plus a loonie ($1.00) from the teacher = goal for that classroom
Eg. 28 students x $0.25 = $7.00 + $1.00 (teacher) = $8.00
More would be a bonus!!!!
A simple jar/container/bottle labeled Somalia-Kenya in the classroom would be placed for deposit and our goal (amount) by Sept. 16
Other Location Target:
Each member of staff at a building x one loonie ($1.00)
Eg. 30 staff x $1.00 = $30.00
Again…above and beyond is a worthwhile bonus.
EveryChildCounts…EveryStudentMatters will kick off this special initiative by making a $1000 contribution to the children of Somalia-Kenya.
All fundraising amounts may be sent to
All funds raised through this initiative will be directed to the following major charities as endorsed by the Federal Government of Canada:
