Jane has since closed the group and partnered with another church.
Young Jane runs an international web design company dedicated to promoting the growth of businesses.
The Agincourt Community Church is a member of the Ontario Central Division of the Salvation Army.
The Facebook group wanted to support of the fight against poverty’ has two goals. The first is the welfare of adults and children living in poverty around the world. The second is to help a young woman with her business.
The premise of the group wanted to place an ad at the company’s website in any province and in any category of your choice. A contribution of $10 will be taken from each ad purchased and all ad contributions will be donated at the end of every month to the Salvation Army.
Individuals not needing an ad can still contribute to the mission by selecting add listing category and writing the description of ad as contribution.
Jane talks to potential clients to see what their website needs and goals are. she then gets with her web designer to put out a web site that reflects those goals. As for the Facebook group Jane’s main goal was to raise awareness of the struggles families are facing in these tough economic times. When deciding on a charity to work with she first considered World Vision but in the end choose a local Salvation Army Church. As Jane says: ” I want to reach people in my own community and knew that this group could work well with people’s own community.”
As I talked to Jane I could tell she was very committed to the cause but wondered if everything was completely on the level. She hadn’t been in contact with the church herself and that left me curious.
Those are worthy goals but when I spoke to Captain Darlene Anderson of the Agincourt Community Church she was in the dark about this Facebook group. Anderson said that she will be investigating the group further. Jane said she still had to contact Agincourt, but when she did, she instead decided to partner with Cedarbrae Community Church in Toronto.
Jane said the Church is embracing the idea of partnering with her cause.
