On September 29, 2010 some 80 donors, volunteers and members of Equitas staff gathered at the beautiful Avmor Gallery in Old Montréal for our annual Donor and Volunteer Recognition cocktail.The event was an opportunity for Equitas’ most valued asset – our donors and volunteers – to enjoy a night out at a beautiful venue, to get to know each other and to hear about how their support is helping human rights defenders and educators in Canada and around the world.
Executive Director Ian Hamilton and Board Member Robert Gervais thanked all of Equitas’ donors and volunteers for their generosity and tremendous support. “Your contributions of time and of money allow us to offer innovative education programs at home and around the world that are making a real difference in advancing equality, social justice and respect for human dignity,” said Ian Hamilton.
Your donations are having a significant impact on the lives of others and there is a multitude of wonderful stories being created thanks to your generosity. THANK YOU. It is thanks to you that we can work to create positive change in the world. We hope you will continue to join us in changing lives and building a global culture of human rights.
