Too many of us turn a blind eye to homelessness. Coming face-to-face with the problem is the only way we can overcome it.
Homelessness is a complex issue. It has many causes such as poverty, food insecurity, lack of healthcare, support services, affordable housing and job placement to name a few. It isn’t always obvious, and it also conjures up many stereotypes.
We will shine a spotlight on those who see the world differently and face the problem head-on to encourage others to do the same. On October 10, 2021 (World Homeless Day), we launch our movement to end homelessness in Toronto and Vancouver. We will continue through November 30 (Giving Back Tuesday).
Working with our partner Toronto Alliance to End Homelessness (TAEH), 100% of the funds collected will be dispersed to local organizations and individuals who are having an impact in ending homelessness.
Being homeless is not a choice. Help ending it is.
Help us help those who need it the most.
