… big changes. It just makes cents!
Threads of Life wants to collect one million pennies – $10,000 – to offset the approximate cost of sending ten family members to one of three regional family forums in 2013. Your small change will make big changes in people’s lives.
It’s time to rid yourself of those pennies! Collect your pennies and make a donation to Threads of Life – and help ten family members who have been personally affected by a workplace tragedy. The Canadian penny will go out of circulation in fall 2012 but you can make a difference by helping us reach our goal of $10,000 in penny donations.
Threads of Life provides family support programs and services to Canadian families affected by a workplace fatality, life-altering injury or occupational disease. These programs and services include training interested members to provide peer support to other family members through the Volunteer Family Guide program and to share their story with schools and businesses through the national Speakers Bureau. Threads of Life’s key family support service is the opportunity to attend an annual regional Family Forum. The Family Forums provide families with the opportunity to meet others who are living with the devastating outcome of a workplace tragedy, while learning healthy coping skills in a safe, respectful environment.
