$ 50000 Goal

We are fortunate enough to continue on with the campaign that started at our campus 11 years ago. About 1.5 million dollars raised for charity later, our companions across the country have grown this initiative to 26 schools across Canada. Continuing on this project is something we consider to be an honor and very humbling.

Our campaign this year is centered around education. We feel that there are a lot of misconceptions about what it means to be homeless and who the homeless really are. Hopefully, this educational standpoint sparks discussion and change in our city. We want to thank you very much for your contributions and support, we couldn’t do this without our donors. #givechange4change
