By Niko Moniz, facilities services coordinator & Rise and Shine host
Have you ever wondered exactly what Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) does and how we do it? Rise and Shine will answer those questions.
In the last episode of our Facebook Live series, we celebrated everything Canada, stretching out the celebration for our nation’s 150th birthday. Here is what you missed — read about it or watch above.
Canadian trivia time (watch at 2:30 minutes)
My co-host Danielle asked me trivia questions submitted by viewers through Twitter. I did my best — but ultimately, spoiler alert, failed — at answering them correctly. What do you think? Does Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson have Canadian roots? Tune in and find out.
Sponsorship 150 (watch at 7:14 minutes)
During July, CCFC campaigned to secure 150 new child sponsors in honour of Canada 150. During the show, we played a video of our CEO, Patrick Canagasingham, speaking about the campaign. We also announced the outcome of our efforts. Tune in to find out what happened.
Interview with Adey Asfaw (watch at 8:10 minutes)
Adey is a grants-compliance manager at CCFC who also happens to be an immigrant to Canada. Born in Ethiopia, she still does a lot of work in her home country. When asked about living in Canada, Adey stated: “It’s a very welcoming and loving country, so it’s an honour to be living here.”
In our next Rise and Shine instalment, Aug. 22 at 10:30 a.m. live on Facebook, we have surprises you’re not going to want to miss.
In the meantime, watch the complete video from our last episode.
See you next time!
