    Trickster Theater & SoundKreations Help Fort McMurray Residents! 

    To help those affected by the wildfires in Fort McMurray, Trickster Theatre & SoundKreations Inc. will be making a financial contribution to the Canadian Red Cross. Artists from both teams will be donating their time by hosting workshops between June 15, 2016 and June 24,2016 in schools around the city. All proceeds (workshop fees, and artists usual pay) will be donated to help those affected by the wildfires.

     

    While the immediate dangers may have passed, many homes and businesses have been destroyed, and many families have been uprooted. Now is the time to rebuild and provide hope for Fort McMurray.

     

    If you would like to make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross, you can do so here.


    Wildfires in Alberta - Fort McMurray Crisis 

    On Tuesday, May 3rd, a mandatory evacuation was issued for the residents of Fort McMurray due to a raging wildfire which threatened communities and homes. Through the strength of our community and cooperation, at this point in time nearly 90,000 people in the area have been re-located to safety without severe injury of casualties. This brings hope to the situation and will be a shining moment in Albertan history showing that even in the face of disaster we can achieve greatness.

     

    However, many of these re-located families are without homes in the wake of the devastation. Thousands of households have been lost as communities were razed to the ground, and they will need support at this time of need. The efforts of Albertans have already proven to be tireless and charitable, but they still need your help.

     

    The Canadian Red Cross has begun funding an Alberta Fires Appeal to raise money for those who have lost their homes. They have opened up a funding pool to the community to help. And you can make a difference to local families by donating today.

    Doctors Without Borders - Kids Go Global's Newest NGO Partner

    TestIt is with great excitement that we welcome Doctors Without Borders or MSF as a partner NGO with Kids Go Global.  MSF is a medical relief organization that has been operating for more than 40 years in over 70 countries, providing relief to those needing medical aid from catastrophies such as natural disasters, armed conflicts and epidemics of disease and famine. The medical aid is given in high risk conditions often putting doctors at risk themselves.

     

    With this partnership MSF brings valuable resources to our website for students and teachers.  Find the link to their NGO page here and learn about the amazing work they do world wide to help those most in need of emergency medical care.

    Canada in Paris for Climate Conference

    In Paris, France from Nov. 30-Dec. 11,  leaders and representatives from more than 190 countries are gathering to discuss climate change at COP21.

     

    The United Nations conference is called COP21 because it is the 21st conference of the Parties (or all the countries wanting to take action on climate change).  The delegates are trying to come up with ways to keep global warming under 2 degrees celsius to avoid more extreme climate events in the future.  Countries in the developing world are particularly at risk of rising sea levels and extreme weather.

     

    Commitments from countries will come at a cost as they work to reduce their carbon emissions or perhaps face penalties, if they don't stay on goals agreed upon in Paris.

     

    Stay tuned to see what Canada will pledge to do at COP21.  Let's hope we keep our promise this time!


    McKenzie Towne School Fights Back Against Pollution

    Grade 4 students from McKenzie Towne School have been hard at work studying the many causes and effects of pollution on our planet. Through their explorations these students have created some amazing video presentations that range in topic from air and land pollution to conserving natural resources. Kids Go Global could not be more impressed with the work coming out of McKenzie Towne School and we are excited to see what they will be working on next. You can check out the students videos by clicking the links below.

    Fundraising Campaigns Underway

    Students are passionate about making change in the world. During the past month, many of our partner schools have taken on projects to help their local communities, raising funds to provide affordable housing, gathering supplies and toys for children at local homeless shelters, and organizing a tournament to raise funds to make sports programs affordable for all families. We're inspired by the vision and dedication of these students and are happy to profile their important work on Kids Go Global. Check out these fantastic projects below:
