We are working to help an amazing Syrian family, currently living in Lebanon, arrive here to safety and settle in the Ottawa/Gatineau region. An apartment has been secured for the family and they are expected to arrive in one month! We need to fundraise $11,000 to ensure that we can help support this family for their first year here. We need your help for this.


I am looking for some awesome teenagers to join me on a fundraising team. We will brainstorm ways to raise more money. We will come up with creative ideas for sharing this more widely on social media. We will get the most current needs list and figure out ways to get the needed items for the family’s apartment.

This will be such a fantastic, heartwarming, uplifting experience for all involved.


We will have our first meeting on Monday, Nov 1 at 7:00 pm. Then we will determine what our meeting schedule should look like.

If you want to be part of this group, but can’t make the Monday meeting – register anyways and we will loop you into the discussions and planning. Or send me an email at worldchangingkids@gmail.com

We will host our meetings on Zoom. The link will be emailed to you shortly before each meeting.
