The Moffat Multiplier - Triples Your Positive Impact
As many of you know, both our immediate family and our extended families have been positively impacted by the work of the Children’s Aid Society. Each year, to recognize all the effect that CAS has had on our family, we support the Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton and attend their Annual Gala. This year marks the organization’s 30th Anniversary and we were going to celebrate this incredible event with a special donation on April 25th*. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic restrictions, we will not be able to celebrate this anniversary as intended, but we now have the opportunity for our friends and family to join us in multiplying our special 30th Anniversary gift!
We are asking all of our friends and family to consider donating to the Children’s Aid Foundation of Halton. Since they are celebrating their 30th Anniversary, we will be tripling all of our friend’s and family’s donations until April 25th.* So, if you donate $10, we will add $20 to make it $30, if you donate $100, we will donate $200 to make it $300, etc.
We hope that our friends and family who are able to donate will consider donating. However, we know that this is a very difficult time for a number of families across the world, so please do not feel compelled to donate if now is not the right time.
Thank you and stay well,
Angela, Ryan and Brett
* The Moffat family will match up to a maximum of $1,500 in donations, committing a maximum of $3,000.
About the Foundation
At this unprecedented time of uncertainty, our help is needed more than ever as fellow members of our community struggle to stay safe and well within the restrictions of self-isolation or quarantine. The stress on families is enormous: potential loss of household income, lack of social connection to friends and family and uneasiness about completing the school year.
The Halton Children’s Aid Society is currently supporting more than 150 youth and many more at-risk youth in the community. Those who are, more than ever, flooded with feelings of isolation and loneliness, with the added pressure of being without family, particularly when their journey to CAS often includes family loss, trauma, abuse or neglect. It can be very hard to stay positive at the best of times and unfortunately, these kids are often dealing with painful reminders of darker times.
