Headlines in recent weeks have been dominated by the Syrian refugee crisis, and the tragic photo of 2 year-old, Aylan Kurdi, whose image on the cover of newspapers around the world flooded our hearts with sadness and moved many people to action.
Now, it is your turn. Small actions can lead to big change.
The federal government recently started an emergency relief fund and will match every eligible dollar donated by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities in response to the impact of the conflict in Syria, up to $100 million, effective immediately and until December 31, 2015.
Let’s open our hearts – please join Sea to Sky SUP, Yoga & Fitness on Sunday, September 27, at 4:30 pm for a karma yoga class at Soul Fitness in North Vancouver, with all proceeds going towards Oxfam Canada in their effort to reach more people in Syria.
September 27, 2015 from 4:30 pm-5:30 pm
Soul Fitness, 275 Fell Ave #114
