Kindred was thrilled to host a virtual fireside talk on “Giving and Engagement in the Digital Age” on November 30, 2020, to complement the spirit and enthusiasm for Giving Tuesday. This dynamic conversation offered a glimpse into how giving and engagement have transformed during the pandemic, when distance has pushed us to connect online.
A storied and dedicated panel shared ideas and experiences, and they invited participants to consider ways they can offer their time or financial resources to issues that reflect their passions.
Thank you to all our participants: Dr. Dorothy Nyambi, President and CEO (MEDA); Kim Lester, Associate Executive Director (Mennonite Central Committee Ontario); Barbara Chambers, Director of Communications (Abundance Canada); and Ken Ogasawara, Communications Specialist (Mennonite Central Committee Ontario). Kindred’s CEO, Ian Thomas, also joined the discussion and Amy Zavitz, Community Engagement Specialist, served as moderator.
