Fusion Thanks Community for Ten Years of Support
A decade of work, support, advocacy, and networking is not possible without the hard work and dedication of engaged volunteers, members, and supporters. Fusion started in 2007 as a small group and has grown to over 2000 members with seven action committees tackling the issue that matter to young people in our community. Plus, throughout its first decade, Fusion has remained a volunteer-run non-profit in many ways because of the unmeasurable support of those involved.
As Fusion Halifax marks its tenth year in 2017 it was clear that doing so without thanking those who have worked, supported, and advocated for Fusion would be wrong. This month, to do just that, we have organized our “Fusion Loves Halifax” card campaign.
The chair of Fusion Halifax, Sasha Sears, says it’s all about making people feel appreciated.
“We want people to be excited about Fusion’s 10th year, and we want them to know we are very thankful to them for being supporters of Fusion,” Sears says.
Halifax is a great city to be part of and for Fusion the community’s support has meant a great deal and is the reason for our success.
“As a volunteer run non-for-profit having the community’s support is vital for Fusion to function as a place for young people to engage in civic matters and areas of interest and develop their skills,” Sears says.
The cards have been mailed out to dozens of community supporters, business partners, and individuals who have help build Fusion over the years. While snow storms have delayed some of the cards getting delivered we hope everyone enjoys some post-Valentine’s Day mail, and Sears hopes the cards are a reminder for people of Fusion’s work in the community.
“We’d love for people to get in touch, if you haven’t talked to us in a while, reach out,” she says.
“We have a lot of fun things planned for our 10th anniversary so we hope they come out to see how they can be involved as a partner or volunteer, we’re happy to have everyone engage in any way possible.”
