The 2020 National THINKfast

Goal $ 10000.00
$ 0.00 raised
We are living in extraordinary times - the Covid19 global pandemic. This pandemic is yet to hit hard where our human family is most vulnerable - in the Global South. But it is starting. See updates from our partners here: https://www.devp.org/en/covid-19

For over 50 years, Development and Peace - Caritas Canada has worked in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East to build a world of justice, side by side with poor and oppressed peoples.

In order to support this work - young people come together in Canada each Lent through THINKfast to raise funds in their churches and schools by fasting from food and learning about global justice. But this year, we cannot gather in churches and schools or anywhere else in the community. So we are gathering on-line this year instead for the first ever National THINKfast! And this year, THINKfast is not just for young people - everyone is invited to join in!

Show our THINKfasters across Canada that you support their efforts to care for others in these pandemic times by either joining our team or making a donation!

Our National THINKfast team will be raising funds for Development and Peace by fasting from 8pm on Holy Thursday (April 9th) until 3pm on Good Friday (April 10th). Participants will be gathing online for different activities online during this period, which are outlined on the National THINKfast program webpage.

Holy week is the most sacred of times for Christians. While the pandemic prevents us from gathering together, it does not prevent us from being together! Together, in-Spirit and on-line. We hope you will join us for this National THINKfast and make your own holy week special by remembering our brothers and sisters in the Global South.
