The “One” Campaign
Kindness, Compassion & Joy
The days we are living in right now are marked by that one kind word, one meaningful gesture, or one thoughtful gift. The Joyful Living Joyful Giving Foundation recently received One Gift that will make a difference. This gift bears witness that one person, one couple, one family can be the difference and make a difference for many.
The children and grandchildren of Vicki & Peter Dueck have provided a legacy gift of $24,000. This generous donation will be used as a 1:1 match for all gifts given to JLJG Foundation over the next 49 days up to that amount.
Forty-nine days marks the number of years of Vicki & Peter’s love story. Both from humble beginnings, Vicki (Ray’s sister) and Peter always had hearts as big as the sky for that one child that didn’t have a place to call home, or that one family that didn’t have enough food for the week or that one lost or forgotten stray animal. They never had much, but they always had enough for just one more.
So in keeping with their legacy and to honor them, this family have asked us to launch a simple campaign beginning on Peter Dueck’s birthday May 4th concluding and it seems fitting on Father’s Day, June 21, 49 days later.
Each gift given will honor these lives well lived. All gifts given whether $1, $10, $100, $1000 or $10,000 will receive a 2nd Edition pair of Joyful Living Socks as a keepsake.
The total amount received will be divided equally to three of Vicki, Peter & Ray’s favorite organizations that are currently embodying what Kindness, Compassion & Joy look like as we live through these history making days of the pandemic.
You can make your gift online at Canada Helps or you can mail your cheque to Joyful Living Joyful Giving Foundation, PO Box 12019, RPO Murrayville, Langley, BC V2Y 0M6.
