As bitter temperatures are forecasted throughout Central Alberta, I have moments of wonder about living in Canada – until I remember the good economic fortunes we enjoy, and the kindness and thoughtfulness of the Canadians I live among. In a year where the economic downturn has slowed our progress somewhat, we can still celebrate the tremendous generosity of our supporters.
recent report has tallied our medical professionals volunteer support at nearly 60,000 hours
! That’s the equivalent of 30 years of full time work. And it is likely that the number captures the true contributions of volunteers, as countless hours went unrecorded by humble souls who don’t acknowledge their time and effort. Many of our volunteers have stayed with us for years, and served in a variety of roles. I thank everyone who has contributed to the success of A Better World.
Despite a slow economy, we have still managed to fund more than 75% of our planned projects for the year. I am optimistic that the final two months will bring us closer to completing our goals. Please read below about a few of our recent accomplishments, and to find available opportunities to support projects that will change the lives of children.
