Something to do on Feb 23rd
Right now, there are more than one hundred and fifty thousand Canadians experiencing homelessness - outside. They are men and women, families and kids. Businessmen, students, mothers. Some were abused, abandoned and ignored. Some were just left behind and broken by the recession, by their choices, by life.
Like a snowflake, every one of their stories is unique. Like snowflakes, many will fall on the streets tonight - alone. And it's cold out there.
Sometimes small things can add up to bigger things. Like when a lot of people come get together to help a few. That's big. That's what the coldest night of the year is: a little walk for a big problem. It's a crowd of people stepping out into the cold night to raise money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in our community. When we join together to help, we can make a big difference.
