do good + connect
Fourth Saturday was first thought about by Lo and Mat during a December night, just before Christmas. As a snowstorm blanketed Toronto we had creative conversations about community building.
Through our experiences - Lo being born in Canada in a family that moved from Jamaica, and having lived in Australia; and Mat's who was born in Romania and spent most of his life in Canada - we found a common view: every day presents us with the opportunity to do good, and connect with new friends.
That is why we decided to begin Fourth Saturday. Our aim is to build authentic, diverse and inclusive communities.
On the fourth Saturday of every month we come together to volunteer for a community project. After, we take the time to meet and get to know each other better.
Join us and be ready to do good and connect.
Seize the fourth Saturday of every month to bring together what is initially a group of strangers to make a positive difference in their communities and become friends by the end of the day.
Transform the way volunteer experiences are done, and friendships are formed and grown.
Responsibility - Obligation to make our communities inclusive and prosperous for everyone
Respect - Considering and valuing our communities and individuals diversities
Empathy - Understanding the needs of our communities and the people that make them
Kindness - Ready to put the needs of others before our own

What are you doing for others?”
