Say Yes! to Kids
Dear Anglican Foundation Canada Supporters,
I am reaching out to you in my capacity as AFC’s Diocesan Representative for Nova Scotia & PEI to thank you for your history of support for the Anglican Foundation of Canada.
I am also writing to let you know that in our diocese, we have joined forces with the Foundation and the Diocesan Environment Network (DEN) right here in NS & PEI for a community cleanup and fundraiser from May 23 to June 13 for Say Yes! to Kids—AFC’s new campaign, and funding stream, to support children, youth, and young adults in Canada. I have attached an information sheet with additional details. AFC is very concerned about how COVID-19 has impacted young people in Canada and this national campaign—with a $100,000 goal—is meant to have local impact by supporting champions for children, youth, and family ministry across Canada. This will also mean support for ministries right here in Nova Scotia & PEI!
We are encouraging people and parishes to get involved in the following ways: Choose a day between May 23 to June 13 to take part in this family-friendly litter cleanup initiative.
Visit www.anglicanfoundation.org/kids and join the NS & PEI team! Then, invite your friends and family to support your efforts and showcase what you accomplished on social media. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me if I can answer any questions about Say Yes! to Kids. In our diocese we have already raised close to $2,000 thanks to $1,000 from the Anglican Church Women Diocesan Board, and $500 from the St. Catherine’s Group of the Cathedral Church of All Saints.
This is a great start, but I know that we can do more, particularly as more of our churches become aware of, and involved in, Say Yes! to Kids.
