Welcome to Halifax Helps

Halifax Helps is a new online home for people who are making a difference, or who want to make a difference, in Halifax and beyond.

We believe that making a difference comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes: volunteering at a local non-profit, doing random acts of kindness, fundraising, starting an ethical business, caring for family members, organizing a food drive, volunteering online, living sustainably and <insert your grand idea here>.
