Good News: Donor matches $100k in contributions made by Reed Smith lawyers

In December 2021, one of our most committed supporters and donors, Dean Dakolias, kindly offered to match up to $100,000 in donations to Lamp Lifeboat Ladder from Reed Smith lawyers by the end of the year. 

We’re thrilled to announce that in just 16 days a group of incredibly generous lawyers at Reed Smith donated over $150,000, taking our total raised to $250,000 including Dean’s match funding. This is incredible! Thank you 🙌

We’d like to thank everyone who donated Lamp Lifeboat Ladder over the Christmas period - this money will directly support survivors of torture and sexual violence & their families as they reach safety and rebuild their lives in Canada. Thank you!
