#GivingTuesday, November 27 2018

This #GivingTuesday, help the Festival welcome newcomers to Canada with Open Arms!

In this season of giving, we welcome people into our homes to experience the warmth of the holidays.

In this spirit, we are asking YOU to give the gift of a warm welcome to newcomers to Canada by granting them FREE access to the Festival. This #GivingTuesday, November 27 we aim to raise $2500 for our Open Arms Initiative, which welcomes refugees and newly landed immigrants to the Festival free of charge.

Since 2014 we have welcomed over 250 newcomers to Canada to our Festival through this program. It costs approximately $125 per Open Arms Initiative participant. Your gift this #GivingTuesday will go directly to the Open Arms Initiative for Festival 2019.

$2500  = 20 newcomers to Canada welcomed to the Festival with Open Arms
