Active in Mission
Westside Baptist Church is excited to join forces with other churches in the Canadian Baptists family to combat issue of hunger in the world.
Statistics show that a staggering 10% of the global population are going hungry. The pandemic, economic hardship, climate change, ongoing conflicts, and natural disasters are just some of the factors contributing to wide-scale food insecurity. Closer to home, 1 in 7 Canadians are food insecure. Food banks and other food-related programs served over 5 million Canadians per month last year. These numbers are expected to rise in 2023.
During Stage 1, we invited brothers and sisters at Westside Baptist Church to donate their skills or services for auction, or committing to an active goal to invite sponsorship. During Stage 2 (between August 20 and September 8, 2023) , we will raise funds by the following 2 options:
Option 1: Bidding for Skills or Services
The first way to participate is to bid for the skills or services donated by our brothers and sisters. For each item listed, there is a base price. Submit a bid that is higher than the base price. By September 8, the highest bidder will win the bid. The winning will then pay by eTransfer (instructions will be given by then) and will receive the skills or services before December 31, 2023.
Option 2: Sponsoring an Active Goal
The second way to participate is to sponsor an active goal. For each goal listed, there is an accumulative sponsorship target amount. You can sponsor any amount towards any goal. If by September 8, the target of a goal is reached, we will contact each sponsor to pay by eTransfer (instructions will be given by then), and the active goal will be performed before September 30, 2023. Proof of completing the goal will be provided.

All the funds raised will be sent to Canadian Baptist Ministries to support their effort to end hunger in Canada and around the world, such as:
Providing food in Ukraine
Training on conservation agriculture in Rwanda
Skills training and goats to earn income in India
Nutrition workshops and small farm animals in the Philippines
Better farming methods for vulnerable populations in DR Congo
Canadian food programs in your neighbourhood.
We hope to raise $100,000 from all Canadian Baptist churches. Your donations in this campaign will not receive tax claim purpose receipt from WBC nor CBM. Please direct all questions to email@example.com or 604-266-5602.
