Edmonton, Alberta – November 3, 2020 – ICChange, the Edmonton based non-profit with global reach, is launching a holiday gifting campaign from November 10th to December 11th, where every individual that donates $30 or more will receive a gift in return. That gift is a seat to Tom Jackson’s Huron Carole Virtual Concert on December 13th, 2020 at 6 PM PT | 7 PM MT | 9 PM ET.
The “Kickstart KIMSSEA” campaign is hoping to raise $50,000 to offset the cost of shutting down construction of the Kenya Innovative Manufacturing Space and Social Entrepreneurship Academy (KIMSSEA) due to COVID-19 back in March. KIMSSEA is an innovation hub and start-up incubator that offers a coworking manufacturing space to changemakers from vulnerable groups, designed to bring their innovative ideas to fruition, and products and services to market.
“2020 has been a challenging year and we wanted to show our gratitude and spread a little cheer to those who contribute to our ‘Kickstart KIMSSEA’ campaign,” says Dr. Abdullah Saleh, Chief Executive Director of ICChange. “We are offering an evening of community, hope, storytelling, and music with Canadian icon Tom Jackson’s Huron Carole. It can bring us together virtually at a time when we are being asked to stay physically apart.”
Every donation of $30 or more from November 10th to December 11th will receive access to The Huron Carole virtual concert, as well as a digital gift bag with exclusive online discount codes to thoughtful Canadian businesses.
