Helping People and Communities

 

Since 2004 Language Marketplace has been giving back to local and worldwide communities. For 2017 we are planning to raise the bar a few notches. Stay tunned!

In 2016, Language Marketplace provided a monetory donation to a humanitarian group to aid a school building mission in Guatemala on October 21-28, 2016. Highlights of the mission can be seen here.

Also in 2016, our President and many of the staff at the Canadian head office ran the Scotiabank Waterfront Marathon on October 16, 2016, where they raised funds for ALS. Charles Valliere, an in-house French translator at Language Marketplace had been diagnosed with ALS in 2011. Charles was at the finish line in 2014, but unfortunately this year he was only present in spirit.

During the 2015 Christmas season, our Canadian head office choose Food for Life as its charity to help families in need with a Christmas dinner. The office donated almost 200 turkeys to this local food charity. These turkeys will provide many families with a Christmas dinner that they may not have otherwise had.

On September 1, 2015, Language Marketplace sponsored Village Church, from Surrey, BC, for their first Golf Tournament, which was in Benefit of the Dalit Freedom Network. By sponsoring the Village Church Golf Tournament , we supported the building of a school that opens the door to economic and spiritual freedom for an entire generation. Change is immediate when a Good Shepherd School opens in a Dalit Community. The total financial need for the construction of this school is $200,000. We were happy to be a sponsor.

On June 22, 2015, Language Marketplace once again was happy toGolf Charity Support participate and be a hole sponsor in the Swing Fore Hope 2015, annual Golf Tournament, in support of Hope Place Centres. This year the golf tournament took place at the Club at North Halton, in Georgetown, Ontario. Hope Place Center helps people find the support to achieve freedom from addictions. http://www.hopeplacecentres.org/community-based-treatment-centre.

 

On October 19, 2014 our President and CEO ran her first marathon at the Scotia Bank Waterfront Marathon. The funds raised as in previous years went to benefit the ALS Society of Canada. The ALS Society of Canada helps patients and their families with support. It also funds vital research to find a cure for this awful disease. Ema was rewarded at the end of the race with Charles, our French Translators’ presence, whom she ran the race for. Visit us in Facebook for pictures and more updates.

 

In 2013, Language marketplace pledged $5,000.00 as a Gold Sponsor for the 2013 Bombardier Plane Pull for ALS. Our Pull Time was just under 2 minutes, but it was a very tough 2 minutes. For a video have a look on our YouTube page. Please find a "Thank You" letter from the organizers to Language Marketplace Inc.

Our President and CEO also took part on the Scotia Bank Waterfront Marathon, on Sunday October 20, 2013, where she ran a half marathon to raise money for the ALS Society of Canada.

This year we have also decided to add something new - a monthly “Act of Kindness” to help at the very local level! With high unemployment and so many families struggling, we thought that helping one person/family/group a month would make a difference. We have also extended this to encourage all of our staff members to ‘volunteer’ their time outside their work hours. Staff will be paid by Language Marketplace for that time they ‘volunteer’ up to 2 days per month. For January, one of our staff identified a local minister who spends so much time helping others in his community and never asked for anything in return. We collected a few boxes of nonperishable groceries and donated $200.00 in gift cards for this family to purchase fresh food. In the fall of 2013 we also collected School bags (new bags filled with the necessities!) and donated them to a minister who ships them to Guatemala each fall! Here is a Thank You Letter!

We were blessed to serve dinner to community members of Our Place Community of Hope. On the menu was Portuguese BBQ chicken, roasted potatoes, vegetable Portuguese style rice, garden salad and home baked Easter bunny cookies. A team of five Language Marketplace members from head office served the meal and a couple even tried their hand at a friendly game of pool with some residents. It was our pleasure to share our time and offer some good food to these members. "Our Place Community of Hope" promotes belonging, safety, healing and sharing for people with mental illnesses. Please visit their website for more information and consider a donation!.

In 2012, we have once again chosen the ALS Society of Canada as our focus charity. This organization became close to our hearts when one of our in-house French translators was diagnosed with the disease in March 2011.
