PeaceGeeks & Give It Up 4 Peace
Founded in 2011, and a member of the HiVE. PeaceGeeks envisions a world where those who are displaced are not lost. In British Columbia, we create digital tools to support greater connection, peace and safety for newcomers to B.C.
This Fall, PeaceGeeks is challenging HiVE members to Give It Up 4 Peace! How? By giving an hour of your time to connect virtually, 1-on-1, with a newcomer in B.C. to forge a connection, and learn from one another.
For every employee that gives up 60 minutes of their time, we are asking organizations to match $60 (that’s $1 per minute!). By participating in #GiveItUp4Peace, you’ll help fund programs that break down barriers for immigrants settling in B.C. And, you’ll personally be part of building a welcoming world for newcomers.
