La mission de la fondation -The mission of the foundation { English Follows }

C’est à Montréal, en décembre 2005, lors de leur premier spectacle au Centre Bell, que les membres du groupe Simple Plan ont annoncé la création de la Fondation Simple Plan.
La Fondation Simple Plan s’est donné pour objectifs de venir en aide aux jeunes en difficulté, en intervenant dans les trois domaines suivants :

Appui aux différents groupes et organismes travaillant auprès des jeunes aux prises avec des problèmes propres à l’adolescence : dépendance aux drogues, dépression, suicide, intimidation, pauvreté, difficultés scolaires, etc. 
Soutien à divers organismes médicaux et sociaux qui se consacrent au bien-être des enfants et des jeunes malades ou handicapés, ou encore, victimes des conséquences de la guerre 
Promotion de la formation musicale et de la pratique de la musique comme moyen d’aider les jeunes à trouver une passion et un but dans la vie, en leur offrant une alternative stimulante aux gangs de rue et à la criminalité, ainsi qu’au décrochage scolaire.

Les membres de Simple Plan sont d’autant plus sensibles aux problèmes des jeunes qu’ils sont en contact permanent avec leurs fans : «Nous avons créé la Fondation Simple Plan parce que nous voulions donner quelque chose en retour à notre communauté, quelque chose qui fasse la  différence, qui permette de changer les choses. Nous avons lu des milliers de lettres et de courriels de nos fans, provenant des pays les plus divers; nous les avons aussi rencontrés lors de nos spectacles. Nous savons donc très bien à quel point le passage à la vie adulte peut parfois être difficile pour ces jeunes. Cela nous brise le cœur de voir qu’autant d’entre eux doivent lutter pour leur survie, alors qu’ils se sentent déprimés, perdus ou malades. Nous voulons que notre fondation les aide à trouver leur voie, en leur rappelant qu’il y a toujours de la lumière au bout du tunnel, que les choses peuvent s’arranger. Nous croyons sincèrement que tous les enfants, partout dans le monde entier, ont droit à une enfance heureuse.», ont déclaré les membres du groupe.

Un engagement plus structuré

Pour les membres de Simple Plan, le lancement de leur propre fondation s’inscrit dans une volonté d’implication sociale mieux structurée. C’est finalement l’aboutissement d’une suite d’engagements au fil des ans : ils ont participé au mouvement d’aide en faveur des victimes du tsunami en Asie du Sud-Est, ainsi qu’à l’événement planétaire Live 8; ils se sont associés à MADD (Mothers against drinking and driving) et RADD (The Entertainment Industry’s Voice for Road Safety), ainsi qu’à Éduc’alcool; ils ont souvent accepté de répondre favorablement aux demandes de divers organismes caritatifs et ont, entre autres exemples, collaboré à maintes reprises avec les fondations Rêves d’enfants et Make-a-Wish. Avec la collaboration de Sennheiser, ils ont permis à des enfants malentendants, à travers le Canada et dans certains pays d’Europe, de vivre l’expérience d’un concert : grâce à un implant cochléaire, ceux-ci ont pu entendre le son d’un spectacle de Simple Plan pour la première fois.

Après même la création de leur fondation et parallèlement à leurs nombreuses tournées internationales, ils ont su rester ouverts aux demandes ponctuelles qui leur étaient faites ou aux catastrophes fortuites qui ont frappé diverses régions du monde. Ils ont donc continué de s’impliquer dans diverses causes au fil des ans, de manière plus ou moins informelle, en rendant visite à des enfants ou des jeunes dans les hôpitaux ou dans des écoles spécialisées, par exemple pour handicapés, ou en faisant don d’objets promotiommels à diverses fondations, telles la Fondation Jean-Béliveau et la Fondation Kovalev et amis pour les enfants, ainsi qu’à l’occasion de tournois de golf comme celui de Bruny Surin

Dans la foulée de son engagement pour Leucan, Simple Plan a donné un grand concert en plein air au pied de la station Ski Bromont, le 14 mars 2009, dans le cadre du Défi Ski 12h Leucan, dont c’était le 30e anniversaire. Le band a aussi participé à la partie de hockey amicale Pro-am Simon Gagné, organisée par Leucan Québec. En juillet 2009, les membres de Simple Plan ont relevé le défi de participer à la «Journée Ambassadeurs» de la 14eédition du Tour CIBC au profit du Centre de cancérologie Charles-Bruneau.

Plus récemment, le groupe a contribué aux efforts collectifs pour venir en aide aux sinistrés d’Haïti, victimes d’un tremblement de terre en janvier 2010; il a notamment participé aux téléthons Ensemble pour Haïti au Québec et Canada for Haiti et a fait un don au Centre d’étude et de coopération internationale (CECI). Également au profit d’Haïti, Pierre a pris part à l’enregistrement de la chanson «Wavin’ Flag» de l’artiste hip-hop K’naan, en compagnie de vedettes telles Drake, Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne et Nelly Furtado. Simple Plan s’est aussi impliqué dans les campagnes du «bracelet» et du «porte-monnaie» organisées au profit de War Child Canada, en collaboration avec Les chaussures Spring, pour venir en aide aux enfants victimes de la guerre, notamment en Afrique.

Peu après le tremblement de terre et le tsunami qui ont dévasté le Japon le 11 mars 2011, la Fondation Simple Plan a décidé de faire, exceptionnellement, une donation de 10 000 $ à la Croix-Rouge, alors que le band a aussi créé un t-shirt #HelpJapan mis en vente pour venir en aide aux sinistrés.

En mai 2012, Simple Plan a donné un spectacle devant plus de 40 000 fans au My Dinh Stadium de Hanoi, dans le cadre du concert «live» de MTV EXIT; cet événement avait pour but de sensibiliser les jeunes à l’exploitation et au trafic d’êtres humains, un crime qui affecte 2,5 millions de personnes à travers le monde! C’était la première fois que le band se produisait au Vietnam et les membres du groupe étaient particulièrement fiers de participer à cette vaste campagne nationale de lutte contre cette forme d’esclavage des temps modernes. Le spectacle, ainsi qu’un documentaire complémentaire auquel SP a contribué, ont également été diffusés sur MTV Vietnam et sur la chaîne nationale.

Plus récemment, et plus près de chez-eux, le déraillement ferroviaire qui a dévasté le cœur de la ville de Lac Mégantic ne pouvait laisser les membres du groupe indifférents. Ils ont donc décidé, par le biais de leur fondation, de faire un don à la ville pour venir en aide aux victimes de ce terrible accident.rester indifférents à cette catastrophe

Au-delà des dons en argent et en objets promotionnels, les membres de Simple Plan donnent leur appui à plusieurs causes et consacrent temps et énergie à les promouvoir. continuer…………… la lecture »»»»»»

It was in Montréal, in December 2005, during their first show at the Bell Center, that members of the Simple Plan group announced the creation of the Simple Plan Foundation.The Simple Plan Foundation aims to help young people in difficulty by intervening in the following three areas:

Support for various groups and organizations working with young people facing adolescent problems: dependence drugs, depression, suicide, intimidation, poverty, academic difficulties, etc. 
Support to various medical and social organizations dedicated to the well-being of sick and disabled children and young people, or victims of the consequences of war 
 Promoting music education and music as a way to help young people find a passion and purpose in life, offering them a stimulating alternative to street gangs and crime, and school dropout Simple Plan members are all the more sensitive to the problems of young people because they are in constant contact with their fans : “We created the Simple Plan Foundation because we wanted to give something back to our community, something that makes a difference, which makes it possible to change things. 

We read thousands of letters and emails from our fans coming from the most diverse countries; we also met them during our shows. So we know very well how difficult the transition to adult life can be for these young people. It breaks our hearts to see that so many of them must struggle for survival, when they feel depressed, lost or sick. We want our foundation to help them find their way, reminding them that there is always light at the end of the tunnel, that things can be arranged. We sincerely believe that all children around the world are entitled to a happy childhood, “the group said.

A More Structured Commitment

For members of Simple Plan, the launch of their own foundation is part of a desire for more structured social involvement. It is ultimately the result of a series of commitments over the years: they participated in the aid movement for the victims of the tsunami in Southeast Asia, as well as in the Live 8 event ; they joined forces with MADD (Mothers against Drinking and Driving) and RADD (The Entertainment Industry’s Voice for Road Safety) , and Éduc’alcool; they have often agreed to respond favorably to requests from various charities and have, for example, collaborated on a number of occasions with the Children’s Wish Foundation andMake-a-Wish. Together with Sennheiser, they have allowed hearing-impaired children across Canada and in some European countries to experience a concert: with a cochlear implant, they could hear the sound of a Simple Plan show for the first time.

Even after the creation of their foundation, and in parallel with their many international tours, they were able to remain open to ad hoc requests or fortuitous disasters that hit various regions of the world. As a result, they have continued to be involved in a variety of causes over the years, in a more or less informal way, by visiting children or youth in hospitals or in special schools, for example for the disabled, or by donating promotional objects at various foundations such as the Jean-Béliveau Foundation and the Kovalev Foundation and friends for children, as well as at golf tournaments such as Bruny Surin’s 

In the wake of its commitment to LeucanSimple Plan gave a big outdoor concert at the foot of Ski Bromont, March 14, 2009, as part of the Ski Challenge Leucan 12, which was the 30 th anniversary. The band also participated in the friendly hockey game Pro-am Simon Gagné, organized by Leucan Québec. In July 2009, the members of Simple Plan took up the challenge to participate in the “Day Ambassadors” of the 14 th edition of the Tour CIBC to benefit the Cancer Center Charles-Bruneau.

More recently, the group has contributed to the collective efforts to help the victims of an earthquake in Haiti, in January 2010; he participated in the Ensemble for HaititelethonsQuebec and Canada for Haiti and made a donation to the Center for International Studies and Cooperation (CECI). Also in support of Haiti, Pierre took part in the recording of the song “Wavin ‘Flag” by the hip-hop artist K’naan, with stars like Drake, Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne and Nelly Furtado. Simple Plan was also involved in the campaigns of the “bracelet” and “purse” organized for the benefit of War Child Canada, in collaboration with Les Chaussures Spring, to help war-affected children, particularly in Africa .

Soon after the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan on March 11, 2011, the Simple Plan Foundation decided to make an exceptional donation of $ 10,000 to the Red Cross, while the band #HelpJapan t-shirt put on sale to help the victims.

In May 2012, Simple Plan gave a performance to more than 40,000 fans at My Dinh Stadium in Hanoi, as part of MTV EXIT’s live concert; the event aimed to educate young people about the exploitation and trafficking of human beings, a crime that affects 2.5 million people worldwide! It was the first time that the band was performing in Vietnam and the members of the group were particularly proud to participate in this vast national campaign to combat this form of slavery in modern times. The show, as well as a complementary documentary to which SP contributed, were also broadcast on MTV Vietnam and on the national channel.

“It was so precious for me to see people really change their mindset about the problems they face. That’s what I want for my people.” ~ Sarah Rogers, Elder and Cultural Support Worker, Inuvik

Part of being human is getting hurt. Sometimes we hurt others; sometimes others hurt us. We even hurt ourselves. Holding onto this hurt and allowing it to dictate the course of our lives can have negative long-term consequences. Forgiveness can change the shape of our journeys. It can release anger, fear, judgement and resentment, and open the door to peace and a positive future.

FULL CIRCLE offers customized forgiveness programs for hurt people and communities. We excel in creating safe, experiential opportunities for people of all ages to explore what forgiveness means—and doesn’t mean—in their lives.  We also consult with non-profits, employers, community groups and schools interested in restorative solutions to repairing harm and peace building.

Who We Are

foundersWe, Katy Hutchison and Shannon Moroney, have walked the difficult and complex paths to forgiveness in our own lives. Now we work together to help our clients do the same.

We are Canadian women affected by violent crime, best-selling authors, sought-after public speakers, and advocates of restorative justice. We are volunteers with Leave Out Violence (LOVE), members of the international Forgiveness Project and we share our stories around the world. We first partnered in 2009 to create the F-Word, an experiential workshop designed to give participants an opportunity to explore what Forgiveness means and its transformative potential for healing. Since then, we have brought our life-changing programs to diverse settings in communities around the world.  

SHANNON MORONEY  was a teacher and counsellor when her husband kidnapped and boy orange3sexually assaulted two women in 2005. After personally discovering the lack of help available for families of criminals, and the vast ripple-effect of violent crime, she became a restorative justice advocate who speaks internationally on the topic.

In 2011, Shannon published her memoir Through the Glass, which became an instant national bestseller and was nominated for several awards, including the Governor General’s Award. In 2015, she co-produced “In Harm’s Way” for CBC Radio’s The Current. She lives in Toronto where she is remarried and the mother of twins.

KATY HUTCHISON was widowed and left with four year old twins following the murder of her husband in 1997. In meeting with the young man responsible, she learned that the only way through the trauma was by forgiveness and education.

Her memoir, Walking After Midnight (2006), was endorsed by the Dalai Lama and inspired Lifetime Network’s movie “Bond of Silence” (2010). Katy received the Me to We Social Action Award (2005) and was nominated for the Courage to Come Back award (2003). In 2013 she delivered a TEDx talk on rethinking education. Katy lives in Victoria. She speaks internationally on social responsibility & restorative justice issues.

International Day of Happiness

Ahead of International Day, UN and Smurfs team up to promote happiness and sustainable development

18 March 2017 – Every person – no matter how big, small or blue – can make the world more peaceful, equitable and healthy, the United Nations today told young people at a special ceremony for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that included the Smurfs and a handover of the key to Smurfdom.

81998_Happy4Voice actors from the upcoming animated movie Smurfs: The Lost Village joined 1,500 students from the international Model UN conference to celebrate the upcoming International Day of Happiness, which focuses on personal well-being, and the SDGs, which include decent work for all, education and health services.

In a special blue carpet presentation, the United States stars of the movie – Demi Lovato, who voices “Smurfette”, Joe Manganiello who is “Hefty” and Mandy Patinkin or “Papa Smurf” – honoured three young Pitufina_students promoting the SDGs in their communities with a symbolic key to the Smurfs Village in recognition of their work.

“On behalf of all Smurfdom, thank you for your work in awakening everything, in your community, through you social media, all over the world, in the ways that you have chosen to encourage people everywhere to make this world a better place for those who are so vulnerable in every way imaginable,” Mr. Patinkin told Karen Jerath, Sarina Divan and Noor Samee.

Small Smurfs Big Goals

Ms. Jerath, who is 20 years old, invented a containment device that could prevent offshore oil spills and ensure the protection of marine life. She was joined by Ms. Divan, 17, who Brainy_Smurfexpanded a UN Foundation girl empowerment initiative at her high school and beyond, and Mr. Samee, also 17, a UNICEF blogger and advocate on social justice issues.

Given a giant key with the SDG multi-coloured logo by UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, Cristina Gallach, the students were told “the world needs you to continue.”

 

“Never be afraid to speak up and to make this world a wonderful, beautiful, hopeful, optimistic place full of freedom, joy, justice and dignity, good food, good water, good opportunities for people everywhere, forever,” said Mr. Patinkin.

The “Small Smurfs Big Goals” campaign was created to encourage people to visit SmallSmurfsBigGoals.com to find out how to contribute to achieving the SDGs, and to share information, ideas and images on social media.

Hefty-originalAs part of today’s festivities, the UN Postal Administration unveiled a special edition stamp sheet featuring the Small Smurfs Big Goals campaign.

The stamps, which feature images of the Smurfs and the SDG logos, were presented by UN Assistant Secretary-General for Management, Stephen Cutts, and the Belgian Ambassador to the United Nations, Marc Pecsteen de Buytswerve.

The event, held at the UN General Assembly in New York, was organized by the UN, UNICEF and UN Foundation, ahead of the International Day of Happiness marked annually on 20 March.

Happness Day

In 2015, the UN launched 17 SDGs that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our 1e1b3cdbf05d89c69d70d9be14799a10planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness.

Along with New York, celebrations were held around the world to mark the campaign and the SDGs.

On Monday, the film cast along with the UN, UNICEF and UN Foundation will be at the Empire State Building to turn the iconic tower blue in honour of the International Day of Happiness and the Small Smurfs Big Goals campaign.

About US

We believe water is the way

To break the cycle of poverty. To protect and save lives. To turn time spent into time saved. To make a bright future possible for all. We are here to break down the barriers between save-water-2d-mascotpeople and access to safe water and sanitation. We’ve already helped millions. Join us and together we can get safe water to millions more.

Water is a fundamental human need, yet 663 million people worldwide lack access to safe water. 2.4 billion people worldwide lack access to a toilet. When it takes everyday hours to find and collect water, it’s hard to find time for commerce and community. It’s hard to get through a full day at school. It’s hard to prosper without safe water.

b6fa5dcd7dee04efbb32465c6b0ad961We are Water.org. We’re here to bring water and sanitation to the world. We want to make it safe, accessible and cost effective because we believe that water is the way to empowering a better life that we can all share in, worldwide.

We are an international nonprofit organization that has positively transformed more than five million lives around the world through access to safe water and sanitation. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, we have been pioneering market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis for 25 years, giving women hope, children health and communities a future.

give-water-today

Our approach is proven and powerful

  • secert-service-man-2We think in terms of practical economic solutions. Charity alone is not a long-term solution. We seek sustainable financial solutions that last and grow, so more and more people can equip themselves with access to the water and sanitation solutions they need.
  • We believe in the power and autonomy of the people we serve. They are people with financial power, rights, and the capabilities to define their own futures. They know the specific needs of their communities and what will work; we have resources that can help make it happen.
  • We have the experience and the passion to go the distance. We’ve been dedicated to this issue for over 25 years, building solutions, making progress, and looking at the problem from every angle to find new and better ways to put water expertise to work.

Smart solutions to change more lives

WaterCredit — A proven, powerful approach

WaterEquity — Accelerating scale and impact

WaterEquity empowers social impact investors to increase the availability and affordability of capital for water and sanitation microloans, putting more money into scaling up a system that is changing lives.

The Jane Goodall Institude

header2

ABOUT JANE

In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is now Tanzania and ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees.

14-1Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Jane Goodall braved a realm of unknowns angel-smiley-emoticon-1to give the world a remarkable window into humankind’s closest living relatives. Through more than 50 years of groundbreaking work, Dr. Jane Goodall has not only shown us the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction; she has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. Today she travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living things and planet we share.

EARLY DISCOVERIES

When Jane Goodall entered the forest of Gombe, the world knew very little about proof-jane-goodall-128400chimpanzees, and even less about their unique genetic kinship to humans. She took an unorthodox approach in her field research, immersing herself in their habitat and their lives to experience their complex society as a neighbor rather than a distant observer and coming to understand them not only as a species, but also as individuals with emotions and long-term bonds. Dr. Jane Goodall’s discovery in 1960 that chimpanzees make and use tools is considered one of the greatest achievements of twentieth-century scholarship. Her field research at Gombe transformed our understanding of chimpanzees and redefined the relationship between humans and animals in ways that continue to emanate around the world.

PROGRAM ADVOCACY

jane-goodall-smilie2When Dr. Jane Goodall speaks, people listen. We use our voice as an organization to speak up on the issues that matter for the long-term well-being of humans, other animals and the planet we all share.

Dr. Goodall has long been an advocate for the dignity and well-being of all living things, and the Jane Goodall Institute shares her belief that speaking out on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves is our responsibility as fellow inhabitants of this shared earth. Environmental advocacy, animal welfare and human rights are just a few of the issues we are passionate about both by being thought leaders and influencers, and by bringing all voices into discussion rooms on topics that matter.

Policy That Protects and Leads to Progress 

JGI promotes this  ideology  when we seek to affect the laws and policies that impact the lives of people, animals and the environment. Whether it be combatting the use of chimpanzees in the media, working to end the use of great apes as biomedical test subjects, protecting the rights of indigenous peoples, or speaking out in favor of legislature and coalitions we believe will have a positive impact on our planet- JGI takes action to make the world a better place by influencing the powerful systems which run it. While we have succeeded in many areas – there is more work to do. Change starts with passion, and our passion is only growing.

roots

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is the Jane Goodall Institute’s (JGI) global youth-led community action program, comprised of thousands of young people inspired by Dr. Jane Goodall to make the world a better place.

albert-einstein-albert-einstein-genius-smiley-emoticon-000718-facebookThe program builds on the legacy and vision of Dr. Jane Goodall to place the power and resources for creating practical solutions to big challenges in the hands of the young people. 

Using the Roots & Shoots 4-Step model, young people map their communities to identify local needs, prioritize their findings and implement a service campaign of their choice to make a difference for the issues they are most passionate about.

Africa in My Blood: An Autobiography in Letters : the Early Years

book-coverAFRICA IN MY BLOOD is an extraordinary self-portrait in letters of Jane Goodall’s early years, from childhood to the publication of IN THE SHADOW OF MAN, revealing this remarkable woman more vividly than anything published before, by her or about her. We see her at eleven founding the Alligator Society (“You have to be able to recognize 10 birds, 10 dogs, 10 trees and 5 butterflies OR moths”); at seventeen developing a crush on the local minister (“He has a beautiful long nose and he loves dogs”); at twenty punting at Oxford — and falling out of the boat (“And I stood in the water — up to my chest — and roared and roared with laughter”); at twenty-two working at a film company and saving for a trip to Africa.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation

beforetheflood-header23

Clean air, water, and a livable climate are inalienable human rights. And solving this crisis is not a question of politics, it is a question of our own survival.” ~ Leonardo DiCaprio, U.N. Messenger of Peace for the Climate, United Nations, 2014

Mission

sign-circleThe Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants. Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. LDF’s grantmaking program encompasses six focus areas:

  1. WILDLAND CONSERVATION
  2. CLIMATE CHANGE
  3. INDIGENOUS RIGHTS
  4. MARINE CONSERVATION
  5. INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
  6. PUBLIC ADVOCACY

LEONARDO DICAPRIO FOUNDATION CLIMATE ACTION PLAN

The LDF Climate Action Plan is a set of climate change solutions and targets that we believe can frame a universal strategy to combat climate change. We believe this plan can support visionary leaders in every nation who are attempting to find the appropriate combination of responses through policy, technology, and finance.

We present 8 sets of goals and implementation strategies in order of their ability to slow the pace of greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere, that will provide the permanent solutions of a sustainable environment and a robust economy for generations to come. Click the link following each category for a detailed list of recommended strategies.

full-plan

Before The Flood, The Film

If you could know the truth about the threat of climate change — would you want to know? Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a aboutjourney as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award®-smiley20deliverywinning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent the disruption of life on our planet. Beyond the steps we can take as individuals, the film urges viewers to push their elected officials in supporting the use of alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power.

world-smilie“We need everyone to demand bold action from their political leaders and to elect representatives who have their best interests at heart, not the interests of corporations to perpetuate a cycle of greed and destruction,” says DiCaprio. “This documentary shows how interconnected the fate of all humanity is — but also the power we all possess as individuals to build a better future for our planet.”

Before the Flood premieres in theaters on October 21st and will air globally on the National Geographic Channel on October 30th in 171 countries and 45 languages, you can now also catch the English version below.

Victims and Survivors of Crime Week (Canada)

violence-banner2

Learning to live

Four years of judicial proceedings… It’s a long time! Yes, but putting an “end” to 25 years 6i3zxbkmof fear, shame, disgust, mistrust, feelings of injustice and negative repercussions of all kinds in my life, is worth the effort! It has been very hard, I won’t deny it, but I’m satisfied at having done it! I’m proud that I held on till the end. Luckily, I wasn’t alone. Counsellors from the CALACS and the CAVAC were there with me to accompany me, and the investigator in charge of my file was very nice and respectful.

jody-smilieWhen I started these proceedings, four years ago, I knew it would be long and difficult. It has been even longer and more difficult than what I had expected! Not encouraging, would you say? I would answer: let’s look at the positive side of things! And positive things did happen, indeed, from the moment I walked out of the Courthouse, feeling that I had recovered my freedom, my confidence, my life!

Today, I feel free. My heart is lighter. I really feel that I have turned an important page of my life, and I am deeply relieved of it. I cannot forget, of course. But I learn to live, day after day, with what I experienced during childhood. And when, for the glimpse of a moment, I remember that right now my aggressor is behind bars, 572320-tn_041 and that he was declared guilty in the eyes of society, my relief is even greater!

Ok, he didn’t receive the sentence that I would have given him (prison for life!), but I trust God that He’ll take care of judging him, for eternity.

Today, I realise that the judicial proceedings I instituted against my aggressor have made me a stronger woman, who can walk with her head held up high and look forward… to the future. That’s it!canadian-flag-background-for-canada-map

So, four years, to enable me to blossom for the rest of my life, I say: YES! I encourage each woman victim of sexual assault to denounce and file charges against her aggressor. Don’t be a victim anymore and get your dignity back, your confidence, your life!

We Matter~Indigenous youth who are feeling alone

header2

I Matter~You Matter~We Matter

We Matter is a national campaign designed to share the message to Indigenous youth struggling with suicidal thoughts and other hardships that no matter how hopeless or lonely things feel, there is always a way forward.

Suicide rates for Indigenous youth are several times higher that of other Canadians, as well as instances of addiction, abuse, violence, and many other issues. We believe this doesn’t need to be the case.

OUR MANDATE

Our mandate is to communicate to Indigenous youth that their lives matter, and to provide resources to encourage and support those in crisis while fostering unity and resiliency. We provide a forum for people across the country to share video messages of hope and positivity with youth who are going through a hard time. By sharing our stories, our words of encouragement, and our authentic messages of hope and resilience, we help to make a community stronger. We remind youth that I matter. You matter. We matter.

MEET WE MATTER

The We Matter Campaign was concepted in the summer of 2016 by two First Nations with-love-smiley-emoticonsiblings, Kelvin and Tunchai Redvers, whom started We Matter with the belief that hope can be brought to Indigenous youth who are feeling alone.

Growing up in the Northwest Territories, they saw potential to connect Aboriginal youth, and provide help and guidance in an interactive, multi-media format. You can take part – by creating a video, artwork, or story – or simply watching and sharing (to friends, family, facebook, or even schools), you can also visit us at our website or facebook.

OUR GOALS

As We Matter grows, we hope to have video, art and written submissions from every Aboriginal community across Canada so that all youth can feel the support of their home community. We encourage you to add your voice. Your feelings of sadness, your feelings of hope, your own lived experience and your resilience can help remind youth why their lives matter. Every voice added makes a real difference.

 CANADA IS HUGE, AND NOT ALL COMMUNITIES HAVE READILY ACCESSIBLE INTERNET CONNECTIONS.

We are reaching out to share our messages in hard copy formats. Please connect with us if you would like to bring We Matter to your community. info@wemattercampaign.org

itgetsbetter-300x183Our model of sharing messages of hope and resiliency was based on the It Gets Better Project, an initiative to share videos of hope and positivity with LGTBQ youth. These messages remind youth that life becomes easier and gets better if they can get through the difficult teenage years.

We thank the It Gets Better Project for their ongoing support as our Organizational Partner, and encourage you to visit their website for more videos addressing community, strength and resiliency in the face of adversity.

5923217342726144

OUR PARTNERS

We Matter has only been possible thanks to the kind support of the people and organizations who believe in a world where Aboriginal youth have the resources to overcome hardships, struggles with mental health, and suicidal ideation. Please visit Our Partners page to learn more.

Madonna Is Billboard’s 2016 Woman of the Year

header2

When the 11th annual Billboard Women In Music event hits New York City this winter, royalty will be present. 

Following a year where she extended her record as the highest-grossing female touring artist of all time, Madonna will receive Billboard’s 2016 Woman of the Year award. 

madonna-4Madonna is one of a miniscule number of super-artists whose influence and career transcend music,” said Janice Min, president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. “With her creative vision, relentless innovation, and dedication to philanthropic causes, she is an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people around the world, all while shattering every career record out there. She is an important feminist on top of that, a one-of-a-kind artist who’s used her influence to change the conversation around women, sexuality and equal rights.

From her Prince tribute alongside Stevie Wonder at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards to her political Met Gala appearance to her indelible commentary on the 2016 election, Madonna has remained a constant force in pop culture and source of cultural conversation over the past year.

madonna-smilie-living-for-loveHer Rebel Heart Tour, which wrapped in March, solidified her status as one of the biggest touring acts of all time. Madonna sold more than 1 million tickets and walked away with $170 million. That makes her the highest grossing solo touring artist in Billboard Boxscore history (the archives go back to 1990) with a staggering $1.31 billion in total concert grosses.

In addition to being the first female pop star with true control of her career and image, Madonna is the best-selling female recording artist of all time. She’s earned 8 No. 1 albums (and 21 top 10 albums) on the Billboard 200 and 12 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. With her 46th No. 1 on the Dance Club Songs chart in 2015, she extended her own record for the most No. 1s on a single Billboard chart. She also holds the record for the most top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 38.

heart-caseIn addition to her ongoing chart dominance, her philanthropic efforts are effecting real madonna-smiliechange in the world. Madonna’s Raising Malawi organization is currently constructing Malawi’s first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit, which will double the number of life-saving surgeries performed on children each year, provide intensive care after critical surgeries, and train specialized Malawian medical staff. The Mercy James Institute of Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care facility will open in 2017.

The seven-time Grammy winner will receive the honor at the 11th annual Women in Music event, held Dec. 9 in New York City and airing nationally on Lifetime on Dec.12. The star-studded event is held in conjunction with the publication of Billboard’s Women in Music list, which identifies the 50 most powerful female executives in the industry each year.

    • Nearly 85 percent of students hear “gay” used in a negative way (e.g., “that’s so gay”) frequently or often in high school.5
    • Students who experienced victimization based on their sexual orientation reported higher levels of depression and lower levels of self-esteem than those who reported lower levels of such victimization.6

  • Many students find that colleges are the first environments where organizations bd_prideaccept, teach, and offer companionship for students based on their sexuality.

  • Youth who are out to their immediate family or out at school report higher levels of happiness, optimism, acceptance and support through multiple measures. Not surprisingly, they also report higher levels of in–person participation with LGBT organizations at school and in the community.9

🇺🇸 The Obama Foundation

header4

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. —PRESIDENT OBAMA

ABOUT US

Raised on the South Side

Mrs. Obama, then Michelle Robinson, grew up in a two-story house on Euclid Avenue in Chicago’s South Shore community, and attended elementary school down the street. Her father, Fraser, was a city pump operator and a Democratic precinct captain. Her mother, pat_smileyMarian, was a secretary at the Spiegel catalog, who later stayed home to raise Michelle and her older brother, Craig.

As the executive director of the Developing Communities Project (DCP) in the Roseland neighborhood, Obama helped set up a job training program, a college-prep tutoring program, and a tenants’ rights organization in the Altgeld Gardens housing projects.

Barack Obama was the 44th President of the United States.

He was born on August 4th, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii, to a mother from Kansas, Stanley Ann Dunham, and a father from Kenya, Barack Obama Sr. He was also raised by his obamagrandfather, who served in Patton’s army, and his grandmother, who worked her way up from the secretarial pool to become vice president at a local bank.

He worked his way through school—Occidental College in Los Angeles, Columbia University in New York, and later, Harvard Law School—with the help of scholarship money and student loans.

In 1985, Barack Obama moved to Chicago, where he got his start in community organizing on the city’s South Side, working to help rebuild communities devastated by the closure of local steel plants.

The President called that time in his life “the best education I ever had, better than anything I got at Harvard Law School.” He has credited that experience as crucial to finding his identity—something that shaped his path to the White House.

Barack Obama was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1996. During his time in Springfield, he passed the first major ethics reform in 25 years, cut taxes for working families, and expanded americahealth care for children and their parents. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2004, he reached across the aisle to pass the farthest-reaching lobbying reform in a generation, lock up the world’s most dangerous weapons, and bring transparency to government by tracking federal spending online.

Barack Obama was sworn in as president on January 20th, 2009, in the middle of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, at a time when our economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. He acted immediately to get our economy back on track. Since then, the private sector has added back more than 10 million jobs during the longest, uninterrupted period of job growth in our nation’s history.

In his first term, the President cut taxes for every American worker—putting $3,600 back in the pockets of the typical family. He passed historic Wall Street reform to make sure taxpayers never again have to bail out big banks. He passed the landmark Affordable Care Act, helping to put quality and affordable health care within reach for millions of Americans. He ended the war in Iraq and is working to responsibly end the war in Afghanistan.

He was the first sitting president  to stand up for marriage equalityfight for equal pay and a woman’s right to make her own health decisions.  He made a college education more affordable for millions  of students and their families. And he believes it’s time for a comprehensive solution to fix our broken immigration system.

smilie-gay-faceOctober is LGBT History Month!smilie-gay-face

October is a great time to include positive representations of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, history and events in your classroom and assess opportunities for LGBT-inclusive curriculum throughout the year.

Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)

k14225952-2GLSEN (pronounced “glisten”) was founded in 1990 by a small, but dedicated group of teachers in Massachusetts who came together to improve an education system that too frequently allows its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning (LGBTQ) glsenstudents to be bullied, discriminated against, or fall through the cracks.  Over 25 years later, that small group has grown into the leading national education organization focused on ensuring safe and affirming schools for LGBTQ students.We face a pervasive problem with a set of new challenges. 8 out of 10 LGBT students are still harassed at school each year because of who they are.
We are working to change that.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation

header2

ABOUT US

aids-awareness-aids-red-ribbon-smiley-emoticon-000509-facebookWe fund frontline programmes that help to alleviate the pain – whether physical, emotional or financial – of those living with, affected by or at risk of HIV/AIDS, and to continue the fight against this worldwide pandemic so that no one is left behind.

OUR GOALS

AIDS is the most devastating modern day disease. By the end of the 20th century, 50 years worth of public health gains were annihilated by AIDS, which continues to destroy lives. Our vision today, along with thousands around the world, is to create an AIDS free future through science, support and most of all compassion.

NO MORE DISCRIMINATION

Elton John's Final Bow At Caesars Palace

Stigma is still HIV’s most deadly symptom. We have cheap, easy ways to test for HIV, and ever more effective drugs to treat the HIV virus. We cannot use them if people living with or very vulnerable to HIV are shunned, hidden, or denied their human rights. Compassion cures discrimination. It needs no special training or qualifications, just a belief that all people deserve the chance to protect themselves and others. Without compassion, we cannot create an AIDS free future.

read-more

NO MORE HIV INFECTIONS

aids-awareness-magnetweb2We fund a huge range of projects – from mobile testing units at football matches to sending SMS text reminders to pregnant women. They all make HIV testing easy, affordable, reliable and above all are offered to everyone without judgement or discrimination. It’s essential that HIV testing is a routine part of public health. The work we fund is always linked to national systems, and we lobby governments ensure the structures are in place to maintain and expand them.read-more

NO MORE AIDS DEATHS

girl-choose3

HIV medicines are now available for as little as $100 a year. Enlightened donors, NGOs and governments have made them available to over 16 million people living with HIV. These medicines not only save lives, they make people living with the virus up to 96% less infectious. So it turns out compassion for those who are sick has also been the best prevention plan. We fund programmes that expand affordable, quality medical treatment to reach those who urgently need help and are still waiting.

read-more

At the Elton John AIDS Foundation we believe that AIDS can be beaten. Our goal is to create an AIDS free future for everybody in this world. With enough support, love and creativity, we know this is possible.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation

header2

The Nelson Mandela Foundation contributes to a society that remembers its pasts, listens to all its voices, and pursues social justice in order to promote peace, human rights and democracy.

About the Nelson Mandela Foundation

red-rose-flippedOn 18 November 2013, South African President Jacob Zuma opened the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, official home of the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton, Johannesburg

The Nelson Mandela Foundation was established in 1999 when its Founder, Mr Nelson Mandela, stepped down as the President of South Africa.

mandellaMr Mandela was South Africa’s first democratically elected President. On 9 May 1994, soon after our landmark election results were in, he was unanimously elected President by South Africa’s new Members of Parliament.

The next day, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was sworn in at an inauguration ceremony at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. He vowed to serve only one term as President, and in 1999 he stepped down to make way for President Thabo Mbeki.

Soon after Mr Mbeki was inaugurated as President on 16 June 1999, Mr Mandela was on the telephone to rally his staff for the new tasks ahead. They had to remind him they no longer worked for him, and so the Nelson Mandela Foundation was born. As Mr Mandela’s post-presidential office, it provided the base for his charitable work, covering a wide range of endeavours: from building schools to HIV/AIDS work, from research into education in rural areas to peace and reconciliation interventions.

pink_smiley_face_Five years later, the Foundation began its transition into an organisation focused on memory, dialogue and legacy work. A comprehensive refurbishment of the Foundation’s building provided it with an appropriate physical home, the Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory. The Centre was opened on 18 November 2013, three years to the day after Mr Mandela last used the building as his office.

Founding principles of the Nelson Mandela Foundation

  • mandella2The creation, establishment, protection and judge-smiley-emoticonpreservation of a Centre of Memory about Mr Mandela, which contains an archive of the life and times, works and writings of the Founder
  • Convening dialogue around critical social issues, including particular issues regarding human rights and democracy, in order to contribute to a just society
  • The promotion of, or engaging in, philosophical activities, including discussion regarding issues pertaining to human rights and democracy
  • The raising of funds in furtherance of the Trust’s objectives
  • The provision of support services to or the promotion of the common interests of public benefit organisations.

Vision

A society that remembers its past, listens to all its voices, and pursues social justice.

Mission

To contribute to the making of a just society by promoting the legacy of Nelson Mandela, providing an integrated public information resource on his life and times, and convening dialogue around critical social issues.

Core work

To deliver to the world an integrated and dynamic information resource on the life and times of Nelson Mandela, and promote the finding of sustainable solutions to critical social problems through memory-based dialogue interventions.

Mandela Day

mandella3Nelson Mandela International Day was launched in smile_118recognition of Nelson Mandela’s birthday on 18 July 2009 via unanimous decision of the UN General Assembly.

It was inspired by a call Nelson Mandela made a year earlier, for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices when he said that “it is in your hands now”.

It is more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy; it is a global movement to honour his life’s work and to change the world for the better.

🇺🇸 The Tyler Clementi Foundation

header2.jpg

About the Tyler Clementi Foundation

boygirl3The Tyler Clementi Foundation is an organization created by the Clementi family which seeks to prevent bullying through inclusion, assertion of dignity and acceptance as a way to honor the memory of Tyler Clementi: a son, a brother and a friend.

In 2010, Tyler’s death became a global news story, highlighting the impact and consequences of bullying while sparking dialogue amongst parents, teachers, and students across the country. The story also linked to broader issues impacting youth and families such as LGBT inequality, safety in schools, youth in crisis, higher education support systems, and cyberbullying.

Not only does the foundation continue to carry the important message about the suicide risk facing many LGBT youth, which can be three to seven times more at risk for suicide giphythan other youth, but The Tyler Clementi Foundation recognises that our message of standing up to bullying speaks universally across all cultures and identities.

Since 2011, The Tyler Clementi Foundation was born out of the urgent need to address these bullying challenges facing vulnerable populations, especially LGBT and other victims of hostile social environments. Through programs such as #Day1, which provides free downloadable toolkits customised for different communities, the foundation encourages leadership in creating safe spaces where individuals are able to stand up to bullying and embrace diversity.

Tyler’s Story

Meet Tyler. His story inspires thousands.

tylerDecember 19, 1991 – September 22, 2010

Smart, talented and creative: Tyler Clementi was deeply loved by family and friends for his kind heart and bright spirit. At the young age of 18, he became a victim of a horrible act of cyber-harassment and humiliation. His story puts a human face on the consequences of cruelty, which has been faced by millions of others suffering in silence in their schools, colleges, teams, workplaces, or faith communities. Tyler’s story has inspired tens of thousands of youth and adults to be Upstanders in the face of bullying, harassment and humiliation across the globe.

He grew up with a passion for music. Tyler began playing the violin in the third grade and became an accomplished violinist. He 2539718-1843096140-fiddlperformed in numerous orchestras and was awarded with several accolades for his musical contributions.

Tyler was also an enthusiastic bicyclist and unicyclist.

By combining his knowledge with creativity and talent, he taught himself to play the violin while unicycling! He understood that we all must learn to embrace unique qualities in others and in ourselves.

Coming Out

Another quality Tyler learned to embrace was his young, gay self.

The summer after his high school graduation, Tyler had just begun the important journey of coming out to close family and friends. Tyler was brave and honest about who he was, but this was still a difficult, vulnerable time for him.

toolkitIn August of 2010, Tyler began studying at Rutgers University where he was excited to learn, grow and have the freedom to live openly as a gay man.

He began playing violin at the institution’s high level orchestra. Only a few weeks into his first semester, Tyler’s musical gifts earned him a seat in an orchestra comprised primarily of upperclassmen and graduate students. Tyler was one of only two incoming freshman who made the graduate school orchestra.

Targeted for humiliation

Within weeks, Tyler became the victim of a horrible act of cyber-harassment, a type of bullying or cruelty that takes place using the internet.

At college, Tyler was immersed in his studies and violin practice. One night, Tyler asked imvulgbticonhis dorm mate, Dharun Ravi, for some privacy because he had a date. Ravi agreed but what Tyler didn’t know was that Ravi was planning a horrible act of humiliation; he secretly pointed his computer’s webcam at Tyler’s bed, and then left.

During one spying session, Tyler’s roommate captured him in an intimate act and invited toolkitothers to view it online. Many other students at the university contributed to this invasion of privacy by not standing up to report or stop what was happening to Tyler.

Tyler discovered what his abuser had done. When he viewed his roommate’s Twitter feed, he learned he had widely become a topic of ridicule in this new social environment. He also found out that his roommate was planning a second attempt to broadcast from the webcam.

Several days later, Tyler Clementi ended his life by jumping off the George Washington Bridge. He was eighteen years old.

The Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation

“If you want Peace, you don’t talk to your friends, you talk to your enemies” ~ Desmond Tutu

peaceline.jpg

Mission

The mission of the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation is to use Desmond Tutu’s life and teachings to inspire young people to build a world of peace within themselves, peace between people, and peace among nations.

 

Vision

The Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation envisions a world in which everyone values human dignity and our interconnectedness. Real peace will prevail when there is a culture of peace in red-rosethe USA and around the world.  That culture originates in the hearts and minds of our youth, the future leaders and peace-makers of the world. Our programs are based on the teachings of Desmond Tutu who has dedicated his life to reshaping conversations about peace, equality, and forgiveness.

The philosophy of Ubuntu guides us with its meaning of We are all connected. What affects one of us affects us all.

our-founder

The Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation is the only nonprofit organisation in North America incorporated by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu is a South African Anglican cleric who became one of the central leaders of the global peace movement. An outspoken defender of human rights and campaigner for the oppressed, Desmond Tutu’s eloquent advocacy and brave leadership lead to the end of South African apartheid in 1993 and the installation of Nelson Mandela as the nation’s first black President. The Archbishop has dedicated his life to reshaping conversations about peace, equality and forgiveness. In 1984, Tutu earned the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts as a global peace maker and now devotes his time with the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation and the Desmond Tutu Peace Foundation to teaching youth the powerful role and voice they play in creating a more compassionate and peaceful world.

Since the demise of apartheid, Desmond Tutu has been active in the defence of human rights and uses his high profile to campaign for the oppressed. He has campaigned to fight HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, poverty,racism, sexism, the imprisonment of Chelsea Manning, homophobia and transphobia.
