Crafts for a Cause

SUMMER 2021

About the Fundraiser

We of the Speech and Hearing Club fundraised for the Aphasia Division of the Stroke Recovery Association of BC (SRABC)! The SRABC is an organization dedicated to helping victims of stroke by providing programs and supports to increase quality of life post-stroke. Their vision is to see that “every stroke survivor moves through recovery with hope and support to lead a full and rewarding life” and their mission is to provide “services, education and advocacy to those affected by stroke throughout every stage of recovery.” In particular, the SHLUB lent some financial aid to the Aphasia division of the SRABC. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the SRABC delivered aphasia programming virtually via their Aphasia Peer Connect program. Any British Columbian anywhere in the province was permitted to join in on their activities. It also welcomed volunteers, who were key to facilitate the virtual groups. Pre-COVID, volunteers would help facilitate various groups to help individuals with aphasia, such as through supportive conversation, language activities, and more. It is the hope that the SRABC will be able to open up their in-person groups soon.

The SHLUB sold various homemade items with the goal to raise about $500.00, 80% of which would go to the SRABC, and the remaining 20% would go to funding club business. Additionally, we opened our shop on Redbubble, which includes many of the designs we created for our homemade products, but will be manufactured elsewhere. All funds raised here were added to the total pool.

We raised $421.54 from our fundraiser as of August 2021. We will continue to keep our Redbubble open for purchases.
