Golden Heart Bereavement Donation Program

Golden Heart Mission Statement

Golden Heart Program is an outreach community based fund raising endeavor geared towards helping families that lost loved ones cope with the financial stress that come as result of the death of a loved one or family member.

It is made up of people with the Heart of Gold in diaspora. Though not an association, funds are raised through THE GCAD FOUNDATION. All donors are classified as persons with the Heart of Gold and therefore,  a GOLDEN HEART CANADA DONOR.  There are no prerequisites  and we do not ask for anything in return from the bereaved family.

100% of all funds donated under the Golden Heart campaign at any particular event, go directly to the bereaved family into their own designated bank account.

What is the Best Thing About Humans?

The above question has been lingering in my mind and I have never found a better answer untill now. " The best thing about being a human is that we help each other when we are not strong" Whaw!!!. No other reason comes even close particularly when we look at what the GOLDEN HEART CANADA FAMILY is doing in the lives of many bereaved members of our community in the recent past.

It is by God's grace  that we have been able  to support each other when down and not strong.

Please join us if you have not been participating because tomorrow could be your turn.

Do your best no matter how small.

Remember the widow's mite.
Happy Christmas, New Year
and Holiday Season.

Past Activities

2021-03-01 BORROWED TIME 📌

Hello Friends,

I  am back again to remind us that we are all living on borrowed time in a temporary world where nothing is guaranteed. As a reminder, I say to you all "No one knows tomorrow nor who's turn it might be next". Other immigrants in diaspora have built their community in the mist of adversities, ours is no different. As the Oracle and custodian of Igbo culture in diaspora, I come to you when there is death in our community, not because I enjoy or celebrate death but to encourage us to rally around each other during such adversities and help built our community.

We all know that life begins after birth or conception, while death is a necessary end that must happen.  When death comes however, we become our brother's keepers. A little bit of condolence donation goes a long way towards helping the bereaved family cope with the unbearable pain and financial stress associated with it. It is on this note that I solicit your moral and financial support because no one is an island. Please donate if you can. 

Thank you .
