It was a stunning success. With $60,000 committed from the Foundation we were able to raise an additional $177,476 from donors from Edmonton, Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto, Brampton and Halifax for a grand total of $237,476.
We sent out 36 eblasts to 32,000 subscribers - over 1.1 million emails.
So much learning, so much impact. None of this would have happened if it weren't for the journey Derek Weiss and I took last spring. The people we met along the way, and the final plane ride home, inspired this idea (along with digitalcharity.ca). It all feels so divine.
PS - Thank you Anna, Zach, Nick, Amy, Emily, Simone, Heath, Henry, Sophie, Sarah, Mariam, and Devin for making magic happen.
