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!)

02.

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!
