In February, we are calling on the Canadian government to keep its commitment to increase its International Assistance Envelope (IAE) every year and invest CAD$600 million in 2024 to ensure that investments in immunization, nutrition, and education can #ReachEveryChild.
With the 2024 Federal Budget just around the corner, it's important that we let the Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland know that Canadians care about how we show up in the world and the great need for #AChildrensBudget to ensure children around the world can survive and thrive. We know that our economy is interconnected and tied to what happens around the world, and with instability and conflict on the rise, it’s critical that we step up and invest in global solidarity, especially for children who are the future leaders of the world.
Write an email to the Minister of Finance Chrystia Freeland (Chrystia.Freeland@parl.gc.ca) and CC your MP highlighting why you want Canada to invest in #AChildrensBudget in #Budget2024. Use the EPIC model of effective communication to craft your email and make sure to make it personal and rooted in why you are a passionate advocate that cares about the world. Feel free to use current events and personal experiences in your email!
