Are you feeling what i’m feeling? Yes, this is a great time to do a reset and share a list of top 10 things I’m grateful for. There are far too many bad things going on in this world not to bring up some good right about now.

Hi all, on Wednesday June the 17th at 4:30pm there will be a Peel March for Justice. This peaceful march will start at 7755 Hurontario Street A. (Grenville & William Courthouse) and continue to 5650 Hurontario Street (Peel District School Board). The March for Justice raises awareness for the issue of systemic anti black racism seen within the Peel District School Board. There will be multiple ASL interpreters present to accommodate all individuals attending. The Peel March for Justice welcomes the deaf and Hard of hearing community members to join in on the march for justice.
Here’s a link to the GoFundMe page for those who can’t attend.
The money raised goes towards:
- Paying the lawyers of young black children who have run into trouble with the law.
- Hiring tutors for young black children.
- Any extra money goes towards supporting the families of children who have been killed due to police brutality. Along with other black outreach organizations.
Please do what you can to support the cause.
Thank you and stay safe!
Hi All, today’s post is a list for those who would like to donate towards the fight against inequality. Since there is a wide variety of places to donate time or money do keep in mind that these are only suggestions. Please do your research and assess that your donation is aligned with the type of support you would like to give. I also wanted to remind the Canadians that read this blog that you can donate to Black Lives Matter regionally.
There is also a fundraiser to get justice for Regis Korchinski Paquet. Here’s a link to the Go Fund Me Page that was started by her sister Renee Beals – Justice For Regis. Or, if you’d prefer here’s a link to the Petition – Justice for Regis
To donate to Black Lives matter on a Global scale, there’s Black Lives Matter Global Network
If you’re looking to support the fight for justice in the United States here are 4 links I was able to find:
There are many more non-profits that are taking donations or petitions that you can sign to help. If anyone has anymore suggestions please leave them in the comments section.
There is a lot going on in the world right now that we should ALL be angry about. I use this blog to spread positivity and encourage people but honestly, this past week I can’t!
International Women’s Day is today! Did you know that every year has a theme? The 2020 theme is, I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights. The Generation Equality campaign is bringing together people of every gender, age, ethnicity, race, religion, and country, to drive actions that will create the gender-equal world we all deserve.
- break barriers
- smash stereotypes
- disrupt the system
- speak up for equality
- demand justice
- fight for human rights
Thanks to all the women who began the fight and to those who continuously work towards change. Here are a couple of links about International Women’s Day:
