Event description

Description

We, Helena Napal and Jordan Charles, having lived in Toronto for many years, have witnessed firsthand the severity of homelessness present in the city. Through our experiences, we have realized the disturbingly negative stigma surrounding homelessness. The product of our realization is the birth of Lend Me Your Ear, a fundraising initiative in association with Raising the Roof. Raising the Roof is a non-profit organization working to find long-term solutions to homelessness in Canada. We aim to convey the stories of Toronto's homeless through an artistic lens, so as to introduce an alternative perspective on the lives of these people. In addition to our artistic endeavors, this event seeks to raise funds to be donated to Raising the Roof so that they may continue the great work they do. To find out more about Raising the Roof and their initiatives follow the link ( http://www.raisingtheroof.org/). Lend Me Your Ear will feature live muscial performances and a silent art auctioned, all made possible by local Toronto artists and musicians.

The event is the first of what we hope to be many, many more. We would love to hear from you should you have any questions or comments. Additionally, if you're interested in volunteering your time or participating as an artist or musician please email helenanapal22@gmail.com. We believe this is the beginning of a truly magical journey in breaking down the walls that divide us and finding common ground in that which unites us; our humanity.
