"WE CARE" CHALLENGE – The Sign of Hope
The “We Care” Challenge – The Sign of Hope - is more than just a fundraising campaign; it is a movement and an opportunity for children and youth to learn about the programs and resources provided by the Agency and to spearhead fundraising initiatives for the Sign of Hope.
With the support and encouragement of Edmonton Catholic Schools, including principals, teachers and district staff, “We Care” harnesses the energy, passion and compassion of children and youth to bring about change in our local communities. For tips on how to get a fundraising activity started click here.
Within classrooms, gymnasiums, and gathering areas throughout the District, “We Care” brings some of the social issues of today – Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder; homelessness; elder abuse; domestic violence; drug and alcohol addictions; AIDS and HIV; and poverty - to the forefront, and invites students to create change in their communities and to make a difference.
