(TORONTO) - The Canadian Boat to Gaza campaign has surpassed the half-way mark in our fundraising goal. A holiday appeal helped bring in about $18,000 over the last month, which puts the group at over $152,000.

"We are proceeding towards our target sailing date with the Freedom Flotilla 2, set for March 30 (Land Day for Palestinians), with a dozen or more other national initiatives. To reach this goal by having a Canadian boat in the water ready to sail at that date, we need all of your continued support, for fundraising and for developing support in communities across the country. We are currently shopping for a boat, and hope to make a down payment on one soon, so continued donations from Canadians like you are absolutely vital to our ongoing campaign."

They are seeking community groups, unions, faith communities or other organizations that could organize fundraisers support their campaign.

You can get in touch with the group behind the effort at this address:; similarly, if you or your organizing would like to endorse the Canada Boat to Gaza campaign, please contact them ASAP.
