The BIG news and buzz from the Foundation continues to be the hugely successful 15th Anniversary Concert which I hope you got to enjoy. The accolades poured in from across Canada and the world. This from South Africa “It was an outstanding Concert. Hats off to all the organizers!” – Lyn (Springs, Gauteng, South Africa) and this from our Executive Director Meg French “It was a wonderful evening of performances that were powerful, and entertaining. The Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign is an integral part of the Stephen Lewis Foundation and we are privileged to have the support of so many amazing women. What a way to kick off the celebration of the 15th Anniversary of the Grandmothers2Grandmothers Campaign. You will be pleased to know that the concert raised $121,125,00 and is still counting.”
It was sad to hear from Stephen Lewis that his cancer has returned but lovely to see him at the concert. I’m sure we all wish him well and hope he remains as comfortable as possible. This is a very good article about him written by Steve Paiken. https://www.tvo.org/article/stephen-lewis-is-fighting-for-his-life
As usual there is an amazing amount of activity emanating from the grandmother’s groups. Please keep checking the website events calendar for ideas and events. There are so many activities you could take part in every week! Please join the campaign calls whenever you can. It is so nice to meet grandmothers from all over the country and hear some great ideas for fundraising.
