Black Mutual Aid Gala Raises $5300!
Sending Heartfelt Thanks to All!

Apr 10, 2024

The Black Mutual Aid Gala Team has great news & lots of gratitude to share! We would like to extend our deepest appreciation to everyone who contributed to our fundraiser Gala.

Your unwavering solidarity, generous donations, ticket purchases, and active participation in our auction items showcase have made a profound impact on our community. Together, we raised an incredible $5,300, surpassing our initial goal.

This remarkable achievement underscores the power of collective support and solidarity in driving positive change. Your generosity will enable us to implement vital service and project-based initiatives that uplift and empower our community.

Mutual aid is more than just charity; it's a powerful expression of solidarity and collective care. Studies show that mutual aid initiatives strengthen communities, foster resilience, and promote equity. With your support, we are building a brighter future rooted in solidarity and compassion.

These funds will be managed collectively by the Black community, ensuring transparency, accountability, and ethical distribution to those in need. Together, we are creating a more just and equitable society for all. We're also excited to announce that this is just the beginning of our efforts to create positive change in our community.

Stay tuned for more events and initiatives, especially as we approach Juneteenth in June. We invite you to continue supporting our cause by reaching out to us at

Your involvement and commitment make a significant difference, and we look forward to working together to make a meaningful impact.

A special thanks to the incredible team of volunteers who worked diligently together to bring this event to life. We’d also like to thank all of people and organizations who donated and made the launch of this fund surpass our expectations!

Special thanks to the Social Justice Cooperative NL for sponsoring the event expenses, contributing staff hours to support organizing, and to the members and volunteers who stepped up to help make the event a success.

Heartfelt gratitude to The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Labour, and The Newfoundland and Labrador Federation of Cooperatives for your generous contributions to the cause.

And huge thanks to everyone who donated via event tickets, the auction, and donorbox. And a special thanks and shout out to all of the fabulous community members who donated their items, services, artwork, experiences, and more, making a fabulous auction possible!

Together, we are stronger!

In summary, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. We love you! Please feel welcome to share this announcement. 🎊
