WELLAND – Thank you to everyone who has submitted to the “All Welland Good” Neighbour campaign. So far our community has shared some great ideas and stories. For example, one of our neighbours has submitted a poem while another family has shared how they’re staying connected and having fun.
Originally we asked for all submissions to be emailed to us by April 30th but we’re having so much fun reading your stories – they really cheer us up and we can’t wait to share them with you – that we’re going to extend the deadline. For us to share the stories on Tuesday, May 5 we need to have your submissions by Monday, May 4.
Send your good news stories and uplifting activities and messages to firstname.lastname@example.org
#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
While donations to non-profits are a big part of the day, #GivingTuesdayNow will also focus on sharing the good work individuals and organizations are doing during this time, just like our “It’s All Welland Good” Neighbour campaign.
As board chair, Greg D’Amico said in a recent Welland Tribune article, our “It’s All Welland Good” Neighbour campaign is a way to keep the museum engaged with the community during the pandemic as community engagement is one of the key aspects of the museum’s mandate.
The Welland Museum is a non-profit and relies on grants and donations to stay open and to provide a space for our community to come together to learn and have fun. We hope that, if you’re able, you will consider making a donation for #GivingTuesdayNow so we can get back to sharing our history with you when we reopen.
Until then, the Welland Museum board and staff hope you stay safe and healthy.
