Global Change for Children (GC4C) to Host Winter Fundraiser to Support Children in Kenya and Canada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2012) - Global Change for Children (GC4C) will be hosting its annual fundraiser at Moose's Down Under, 830 West Pender Street, from 5 PM, January 25th. All proceeds from sponsorships, ticket sales ($20 at the Conference or at the door), the silent auction and other donations will be used to fund causes that benefit children in Kenya and Canada.

To jump start their 2012 fundraising campaign, GC4C was at the Vancouver Cambridge House Resource Investment Conference, January 22-23. Co-Chairman and President, Chafika Eddine, comments, "We are thrilled with the support we are receiving from the mining industry. We feel so fortunate to be able to make a small positive difference."

GC4C's goals are to promote and enhance the health, education, social and economic development of children in disadvantaged regions throughout the world. To date, GC4C endeavours include sponsoring breakfast programs for 244 children from five schools and providing scholarships for twelve students into secondary school. GC4C also focuses on sustainable development and has helped provide schools with necessary furniture and equipment. As well, GC4C has helped sponsor workshops on life skills, career choices, education on HIV/AIDs, and building a sense of community. GC4C will continue to support projects in Kenya and Canada while reviewing new opportunities to help.

GC4C was formed in 2008 by professional women from British Columbia primarily from the mineral exploration industry. The non-profit organization's efforts go to help fund low-overhead charities that enhance and promote the health, education and social and economic progress of children. GC4C is a volunteer organization with 100% of its net proceeds donated to carefully selected children's causes.
