Fundraising events such as this help us to raise money to meet our operating budget of approx. $3,000 USD per month.  With the decline of the Canadian dollar over the past year, a significant strain has been put on ODO resources.  We would like to establish and maintain a regular donor base to ensure the stability of cash flow, fund a vehicle purchase and any future education costs for the children.  We would like to encourage you to become a dedicated monthly donor so we can continue to provide for the children so they can have a bright and stable future.  For ease of making monthly or one-time donations we have set up automatic banking withdrawals.  Please see the attached link below to fill out a donation form.  It can be returned to ODO via email or mail.

Sharon Dugard, president and founder of Open Doorways Orphanage, has visited our school in the last few years to speak of her experiences in Haiti.

The students have been very inspired by her and her dream of building an orphanage for children in that country struggling with poverty.

They were moved to hear there are many children without a home, food or even a chance to go to school, all of which many of us take for granted.

With new awareness, Student Council decided to help this charity and began raising funds through sales of cookies and Freezies.

There is nothing more important in the world than making sure children are fed and sheltered.  We thank this organization for their hard work and thrilled Open Doorways is now a reality in Haiti.  We will continue having fundraisers for this wonderful project and happy to be able to contribute in a small way.

Open Doorways has given us the opportunity to learn not only with our minds but also with our hearts.
