SASKATOON, Saskatchewan - The inaugural year of Grow Hope in Saskatchewan was an outstanding success! The generosity of two Saskatchewan farmers and 63 donors helped to raise over $111,000 for Canadian Foodgrains Bank food security projects around the world. After being matched by the government this can turn into as much as $550,000!
Grow Hope is a unique project that brings people together - local and international, urban and rural, Catholic and Mennonite - in a common goal of working to end global hunger.
In fact, it is easy for people from all backgrounds to participate in Grow Hope. Individuals have the ability to become 'virtual farmers' by sponsoring an acre of farmland for $300. That money is used to provide seed, fertilizer, fuel and other inputs. Throughout the duration of the growing project, we will send you updates about the field, giving you insight into the farming process.
Grow Hope is a demonstration of generosity, both land and finances. Together, we are working to support people around the world with emergency food supplies and long-term food security.
As Olympic Gold Medalist, Cindy Klassen says, through Grow Hope "we are building a bigger table that reaches from Saskatchewan to Syria and Lebanon, to Bangladesh and Nepal, to Ethiopia and Congo and South Sudan. We are demonstrating care and compassion for people we will probably never meet, and we want to let them know that they are not alone - they are welcome at our table."
Join us in extending our table. You can be a part of Grow Hope Saskatchewan by clicking on the donate button and sponsoring your acre today! Together we can help spin straw into gold and create a world without hunger and full of hope.
