By: Results Canada Published: 13/09/2023

We know a world free of poverty is possible. We dream big at Results – and our advocacy and volunteers have big impact.

Dream with us.

You have the power to advocate and raise funds to end extreme poverty. You can be a #GameChanger.

Throughout October, in honour of the International Day to Eradicate Poverty (IDEP) and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, we are fundraising for #PowerOfAdvocacy with #17ActionsForIDEP.

We invite you to get ready by creating your personal donation page and downloading the fillable #17ActionsForIDEP checklist!

In 1992, the UN General Assembly called on countries to undertake concrete activities towards eradicating poverty on October 17th for IDEP. This is what Results and our dedicated volunteers do every day. IDEP is our day to build momentum and ramp up efforts to achieve our mission.

We invite you to harness the #PowerOfAdvocacy by taking 17 concrete advocacy actions and raising funds for Results in October so we can end extreme poverty and achieve the 2030 SDG targets.

The 17 actions include effective, concrete advocacy tactics such as writing a letter to the editor, calling your member of parliament, creatively educating your peers, and fundraising. Find out how many #17ActionsForIDEP you can take in a month and be a #GameChanger.

At Results we work with everyday people become powerful advocates for change – and give them the knowledge, skills, and support they need to connect with decision makers who have the power to end extreme poverty. Our volunteers all over Canada advocate for improved policies and increased funding to secure advances in these critical areas: global health equity, education, and economic opportunity.

The funds you raise for Results will be leveraged for training advocates to make big impact. We’re aiming for $17,000 in one month and we know we can do it because of you. We know better than most how small actions by individuals like you can bring in big results.

To recognize your efforts, we will have prizes for completing the most actions and raising the most money, as well as certificates to recognize exceptional skills.
