We are excited to host PeaceGeeks' 3rd #GiveItUp4Peace challenge. We challenge you to give up something you can't live without to show your support for newcomers who have given up everything they know to begin their new lives in Canada.
Thanks for participating in #GiveItUp4Peace!
Sign up on your own or with a team!
Decide what you will give up for the month of October.
Set a fundraising goal and ask your friends to donate to support communities in pursuit of peace.
From Oct. 1-31, complete your Give It Up challenge every day. Share your journey using the #GiveItUp4Peace hashtag.
At PeaceGeeks, we develop digital tools, skills training, and knowledge sharing to empower communities in the pursuit of peace.
By participating, you make it possible for us to scale our initiatives to reach even more communities in need. From our Arrival Advisor app helping newcomers successfully settle in Canada, to our program empowering young Jordanians to combat hate speech — these projects would not be possible without donations. By fundraising for PeaceGeeks or making a donation, supporters around the world help us put the power of tech for peace in the hands of those affected by displacement and conflict.

At PeaceGeeks, we partner with immigrants and refugees, settlement agencies, and community organizations to develop tools like Arrival Advisor that help newcomers to take charge of their settlement journey and thrive in Canadian communities.
Join #GiveItUp4Peace in solidarity with individuals and families who have given up everything to start their new lives in Canada, and raise money towards projects that make a difference for newcomers.
PeaceGeeks was able to continue the development of our app Arrival Advisor, and in March 2019 we launched Arrival Advisor in British Columbia.
Last year, over 75 individuals and 12 teams gave up something for peace, helping us raise $51,426 towards PeaceGeeks' projects.
Participants gave up their bed, using the internet, wearing shoes, drinking a cold beer, and even having a morning coffee. All in the name of supporting peace, resettlement, integration, and inclusion. Let's make an even bigger impact this time!
