A few weeks ago Council received a proposal from the Affirming Team to redirect the celebration coins from the Canadian charity Sleeping Children Around the World https://www.scaw.org/ to Gukwas sa Wagalus (Rainbow House) https://dawntodawn.org/category/gukwas-sa-wagalus/
Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on this proposal.
Based on your comments, Council decided that, for 2024, the money collected as birthday coins will be distributed evenly between these two worthy causes.
This allows us to benefit young people in our community while continuing to benefit young people in other countries.
Thank you for bringing your birthday coins to share with children and youth, locally and globally.
