Dear friends and family! January 25th marked a very important day for us and our non profit organization. It is the day when a year ago we started to officially promote ourselves as a "volunteer group" "Stream of Hopes - Потічок Надій". A year ago we never thought we were going to get to where we are today. But today we are positive and hopeful that a year from now we will be celebrating even more accomplishments.
Just as a quick summary of what has happened in the past year: we have tremendous support from all across Canada with people donating from as far as Vancouver to Ottawa. We are supporting over 3,000 children all across Ukraine. We have shipped over 2,700 kilograms of humanitarian aid directly to Ukraine (that's over 6,100 pounds). We have raised over $22,000 dollars that have gone to either pay for shipments or have been sent directly to those in need like little Yana, Nadiyka, Diana, Sonia, Ustynka and many others. Through us, Our supporters have sponsored 4 out of 12 rooms in the new Crisis Centre which will be opening its doors pretty soon, we have funded a good portion of the set-up for Bukovynska Mriya last year and are now working with many organizations who are helping us with our efforts. St.Demetrius Ukrainian Catholic School, Bishop Filevich Ukrainian Bilingual School, BCU Financial Group - Buduchnist CU, New Community Credit Union, IMED - a division of "Feed the Hungry", MEEST Canada, Aurora WDC and many many other individuals who believe in us and who are helping us provide assistance to those in need. We held our first successful fundraiser in December at LB Distillers which was a huge success and featured fashions from Iryna Zhytaryuk and Ukie Boutique. We are forever grateful to everyone for your support, for your generosity and your trust in us. We hope that 2017 will be an even better year and we look forward to continue working with all of you to make sure your good deeds go a long way! Thank you and please continue with your help and support!
