Compassion goes hand-in-hand with solidarity
Share Lent 2011 is the annual awareness and fundraising campaign of the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace.
Jesus felt compassion when faced with human suffering. We are called to feel that same depth of compassion when faced with the suffering of our brothers and sisters in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.
Through your generous donations to Development and Peace this and every Lent, you help build a world of justice.
A blog for Share Lent!
This year, in addition to the printed material, Development and Peace has also created an interactive blog that will use the testimony of members to publicize the work being carried out by its partners in the Global South.
There you will find photos, videos and articles to share.
The blog will be active starting on the first day of Lent, March 9, 2011. You can subscribe to the blog right away! You will receive an invitation to follow the blog during its launch and a weekly update of published articles.
In the meantime, you can receive daily information about Development and Peace, its campaigns and its partners in the Global South by becoming part of our community in the social media:
New: Participate in fundraising online
This year, for the very first time, you can participate in our online fundraising efforts for Share Lent by creating a personal page. Offer your talents to those who need them (music, gardening, cooking) and, in exchange, ask your entourage to give to Development and Peace.
Fundraising online will be possible starting on March 9, 2011. You can sign up now to the blog to receive the necessary information in the week before Lent.
Share your comments and questions here and stay tuned for updates from the Share Lent Blog 2011.
