October 12th we had a wonderful lunch in Edmonton at the Art Gallery! David Stiller, the founder of Opportunity International Canada spoke and shared the roots of how out of personal tragedy, he and his wife Evelyn took their grieving and transformed it into creating global change. Larry Reed then shared the model of microfinance and why this powerful tool is the way we are going to eradicate global poverty.
Together, we raised $12,064 on this day! At an average $166 to impact one family, that’s 72 families whose dreams can come true because of this impactful evening.
Thank you to all who came out and shared a meal together, and took the time to learn about Opportunity.
