This fall

Let’s Get Quizzing!

This fall, hundreds of groups across Canada will come together for a night of trivia fun, raising money to help end extreme poverty.
Host a Big Quiz

The perfect event for COVID times! Gather physically or virtually together with your friends, family, small group, or church for an epic evening of poverty-fighting fun.

The quiz includes 10 rounds with 10 questions on topics like sports, history, music, and more. It is fun for all ages!

And we’d love for you to join!

It's Very Easy to Run

We’ll provide everything you need, including a host guide, answer sheets, and a ready-made quiz video.

You can tailor the quiz to suit your group, serve food and drink, and make it as big or as small as you like.

Help People Like Kanini

Every dollar raised will transform the lives of people like Kanini from Kenya.

For years, Kanini worked 12 hours a day for a total of $2 – not even enough to feed her children two meals a day.

But today she owns a successful business and earns 20 times more than she did before.

Help
Fun, easy, and for a great cause.
