Change Happens 2018 is over, but you can still donate online
Thank you to everyone that listened and donated. Together we raised $66,800!
As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday so many of us truly have much to be thankful for. Now we have an opportunity to give back.
Just $3.11 provides a meal. That means for $108.85 you could feed 35 people. Or, for $326.55, you could feed 105.
We had over $400 come in overnight, helping us start the final day at $28,066.95
We also started day three with a $1,000 match from Charleswood Roofing.
Super Lube Auto Centres also matched another $10,000. Jim Brousseau talked to us about what inspired him to give and encouraged others to give what they could. Then he topped up his donation with another $8000 to help push the total over $60,000.
Ken Talbot from Freightliner Manitoba stopped by and donated $5,000. He also challenged everyone in the Manitoba trucking industry to donate, too.
Charleswood Roofing joined by giving a $1,500 of their own.
To finish off the day, Siloam Mission success story Will Gault showed up and shared his story, using Siloam's services and today donating to Siloam. After his wedding six weeks ago, Will and his wife made a donation in lieu of favours for wedding guests and donated $326.55.
We finished at $66,800

Kristin works in transition services at Siloam. The reality is when you donate to Siloam you're not just helping somebody have a warm meal - you're helping somebody find their worth and find new life.
Winnipeg musician David Bracken stopped by and shared his heart for Siloam's work.
He also shared some music from his new EP.
JJ is the Community Education Coordinator at Siloam Mission. He recently spoke at a TEDx event about what happens when you look past homelessness.
