IS NOVEMBER 29TH BUT YOU CAN START AHEAD OF TIME!
We need you to do what is necessary for those we support throughout the year.
"Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
This is a quote from St Francis of Assisi which we like to use for asking you to ’Help us Help others’ on Giving Tuesday.
Everyone hears about our fundraising events: Bastille Day, Solidarity Dinners, etc.
What is less known is that each and every month we support individuals and families in extremely difficult situations.

Doing what is necessary
We help those in dire need.
Our beneficiaries are faced with unpredictable, short or long-term problems that are impossible for them to solve alone.
Some have to take care of children with serious developmental issues or debilitating conditions, others suffer with severe emotional distress and have nowhere else to turn. Our support is wide-ranging from helping persons with Multiple Sclerosis to several cases of caring for autistic children. We also help in less dire, but still crucial cases, for instance helping to pay Internet bills for the education of a very good young student or with the need for legal advice.
These monthly checks help to make a difference in their everyday lives and allow them to get through difficult times with dignity and hope.
Members of the CT meet regularly to review the needs, decide the level of help required, increase, decrease or terminate the aid based on the particular situation.
Doing what is possible
Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500.
Many hands make light work and every little bit helps.
We rely on the many events that you have come to enjoy, but this is not enough to sustain our programs and to make sure we do not turn anyone away.
Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity to support our mission.
A monthly donation, however small, would help us to better manage our response to these needs.
Suddenly you are doing the impossible
We want to thank all of you who, over the years, have helped us do what at times seemed impossible. Please continue to make sure we uphold the commitment we have made to be there for those in need.
Each time we are faced with a new challenge we have been able to count on you, and thanks to your generosity, beneficiaries have a better quality of life and are able to surmount their difficulties. They can live without the fear of tomorrow.
