Peter and Debra pay it forward
Peter and Debra have found various creative ways to raise funds and continue the good work they began as volunteers first in Tanzania in 2011 and most recently in Myanmar in 2018. From bake sales at their local farmers’ market to barbecues at their local Scotiabank branch, they continue to be instrumental supporters. Their favourite fundraiser to date was a trivia night hosted in their home. “We served our homemade beverages and snacks, and each contestant contributed twenty dollars. This evening was a lot of fun!”
Little Firefly - Creating a brighter future
Little Firefly was created by Jayda, a Grade 12 student, in the summer of 2020 with a simple desire to help people connect and share some joy during a global pandemic. “I wanted to use my artistic passion to care for others, support people who may need a virtual hug, and put a smile on someone’s face,” says Jayda. “Through my greeting cards, I look to create a brighter world. A world of connectivity and inclusivity.” Aligning her philanthropic heart with Cuso International’s commitment to creating a global future free from poverty and inequality Jayda is donating 15% of every card sold (excluding the COVID-19 Collection) to Cuso International.
