I’m a second-year Bachelor of International Business student minoring in Spanish and concentrating in Marketing and Trade. I’m incredibly eager to be a part of 5 Days for the Homeless for my first year as a sleeper!
Why I am doing this:
Homelessness is an incredibly overlooked matter in our country, affecting over 30,000 Canadians. In this opportunity with 5 Days for the Homeless, I hope to shed greater light on the State of Homelessness in Canada 2016 report which created an action plan for those currently living on the streets to find work, be placed in homes, and to access emergency shelters and health and education services. During this campaign, I’ll be encouraging community members to become informed on the concrete steps we can take to expand the support systems for Canadians living on the streets.
