Hope Gathering 2019

A BENEFIT TO PROVIDE HOPE AND SHOES TO CHILDREN IN NEED IN CANADA

Dear Friends,

Samaritan’s Feet Canada is excited to announce our 1st Annual Hope Gathering (date to be confirmed) at a grand venue in downtown Toronto. This event, along with your support, will provide shoes, education, healthcare, and hope to children in Canada. All proceeds raised will go towards our mission to make Canada a country with zero shoeless children.

Samaritan’s Feet International was founded in 2003 by Manny and Tracie Ohonme. Samaritan’s Feet International is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that wants to inspire hope through the gift of shoes and the act of washing feet to those who need it the most. Children with no shoes are often not allowed entrance to education in many countries and can find their way into slavery, or unsafe and inexcusable child labor environments. Since our founding in 2003, Samaritan’s Feet and its partners have distributed over 7 million pairs of shoes in 108 countries and 389 U.S. cities.

The Hope Gathering is an opportunity to kick off your shoes and enjoy a night full of laughter, fun, wonderful stories, a delicious food and drinks, music and dancing and the chance to make a difference by offering HOPE throughout the world. This event is expected to attract over 100 individuals from corporations, foundations, and organizations in the GTA area.

We would love for you or your company to be involved in this event, please see opportunities in the following pages. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our President of Samaritan’s Feet Canada, Dawna MacLean at dawna@samaritansfeet.ca or 416-993-4366 .

Thank you, in advance, for your consideration and support from the Samaritan’s Feet family.
