Raw Hope works in unstable countries whose governments cannot or will not act to protect the rights of its people. These countries are severely weakened by chronic economic and political problems. Children living in these countries struggle with disturbing conditions.
Your Raw Hope donation ensures we are able to help in these challenging countries to bring immediate relief and also work toward long-term solutions.

“Welcome to Live Different! We are about change. We are about hope. We are about the continual dream and reality of making a positive difference in the world around us. We believe that together, we really can do it!
We all know apathy sucks. We all agree that injustice is not acceptable. We all want to do something to stop the cycle of selfishness in our lives and in our world. It is possible – but we need to know where to start. So that is why, every day, we are challenging the status quo and calling the world in which we live to wake up and Live Different.
To Live Different means to choose to answer the call to social activism, each and every day – starting with ourselves.
Live Different (formerly known as Absolute Leadership Development) was established as a Canadian charity in 2000. From the very beginning we have been passionate about making a difference in the lives of the people we encounter through our high school presentations, our humanitarian outreach programs and our leadership development opportunities. We have grown over the years, but one thing will never change: our commitment to inspiring those around us to embrace hope and change, starting with their own lives.
We believe that each of us can be a part of that change, each and every day. All it takes is us just beginning to do it! From reaching out to someone in your life, to changing how you shop, to traveling around the world with our Hero Holiday volunteer programs, each of us can be a part of something incredible. Each of us can Live Different!”
The Meeting House
The Meeting House – “Not into traditional religion? You have come to the right place. The Meeting House is a church for people who aren’t into church.
Maybe you’ve had a bad experience with organized religion, maybe you are investigating Jesus for the first time, or maybe you have moved into a new area and are looking for a community to rally around and serve our world better. Whatever your situation, we hope you will find a place here to ask questions and find what you are looking for.”
