Year of The Tiger Fundraiser: Empowering Women and Girls


I’m joining forces with CARE Canada and raising funds to empower women and girls around the world to fight global poverty.  

Please help me and SPONSOR my fundraiser today.  You will receive a tax receipt if you donate $10 or more to my efforts.  One of the projects I am most interested in is the BEACON project:



BEACON - Basic Education for Afghanistan


  • Achieve a noticeable benefit for 25,000 students, including children (at least 60 per cent girls), youth and women in remote rural areas with greater access to education, resources and supportive learning environments.
  • Provide 800 teachers (at least 40 per cent women) with effective teaching methods and resources.
  • Increase the capacity for the Ministry of Education to support community-based education on a long-term sustainable basis.
  • Engage the community in educational activities in partnership with the Ministry of Education and other stakeholders.


This project is undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada provided through the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada.

All funds raised will go towards supporting CARE projects and programs that improve access to clean water and sanitation, education, health care, economic opportunities and more around the world. They have a big impact in areas where the need is greatest. 

 Thank you for your support!
