Ways to Give
Over the past few weeks, several media outlets (Toronto Life, CTV News, NPR, the BBC, The Guardian, to name a few) have covered my story.
As you can imagine, my email is now inundated with requests and people asking how they can help. Two ways you can help right now are:
Donating to the new GoFundMe campaign Opens in new window I created — all donations will go directly to helping Syrian families settle into new lives in Canada; and/or donating to The Muslim Society of Guelph Opens in new window — our closest ally in helping integrate new Syrian families into Guelph.
Your support is appreciated.
Jim Estill, CEO of Danby
