Make it Happen is a community of people who are committed to transforming lives — simply by doing what they love to do. It’s never been easier to have fun and raise funds for the Old Brewery Mission.
You can Make it Happen
Together with you, the Old Brewery Mission believes in people, in their ability to overcome the tremendous challenges of life on the streets, and to reclaim their rightful place in society. We succeed by inspiring, by leading, but above all, by being an agent of social transformation.
Here’s where you come in!
Come up with an idea for a campaign. (Ideas listed below but possibilities are endless!)
Sign up and create your campaign page.
Share with your friends, family and colleagues and Make it Happen!
Have fun! Raising funds for a cause is not only exciting, but powerful.
Run a 5k, swim across a lake, fast for a day, bike somewhere; celebrate your wedding, anniversary or birthday; organize an office party, a hockey tournament, a concert or a movie night… It’s up to you! Whatever you do, you’ll be helping men and women experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives and find a place to call home.

Remember, your event can be as small or as big as you choose, and the amount you raise doesn’t have to be huge – every donation is part of the solution!

Here are a few examples of the types of fundraisers you can organize for the Old Brewery Mission:
Special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, graduations, family or class reunions, can be perfect opportunities to raise funds.
Raise funds by participating in a spinning challenge, running a race, swimming across a lake, embarking on a cycling tour, organizing a special yoga session, and more!
Participate in a dance-a-thon, a polar swim, a backwards day…No TV, chocolate, or buying coffee for a month…No speaking for a day (some people may be happy!). Challenge yourself!
Organize a concert, an office cocktail party, a rummage sale, a movie night, a conference, a book club…
There are individuals, who just like yourself, are concerned with the well-being of homeless men and women. This is why the Make it Happen movement is so dynamic. Get inspired by these campaigns!
