Lets Celebrate International Women’s Day With Freak Ppl Co!

Today is International Women’s Day a day where we need to recognize the women’s movement and how far they have achieved in equality and women’s rights. But we also need to keep in mind that more work still needs to be done to achieve true equality. As Canadians we are often stereotyped to be kind, and forgiving; but yet here we still have issues of gender inequality, whether it be the wage gap or just everyday instances of discrimination.

So I ask everyone today to spread the word and stand up for what’s right, that no matter your gender, sex, or nationality we all deserve equal rights and that as people we will stand up for each other.

I would also like to share a recent success that some of our own GBC hubsters had. You may recall them from their tampon and pad drive that they held earlier. The drive was a big success and they donated 400 pads and tampons to Fred Victor’s Women’s Hostel!!!

Lets definitely show Freak Ppl Co some love at their Instagram page Here

Or help support them by ordering their custom shirts on etsy Here

To learn more about their drive and what they are about check out the previous article Here

Toronto Light Fest: Come into the light

If you do not have any plans this weekend and you find yourself bored in Toronto head over to the distillery district and come out for the last weekend of the Toronto Light Fest.

What is the Toronto Light Fest you ask?

The Toronto Light Fest is a new visual journey and an imaginative cerebral adventure.

During the cold, dark days of winter, City residents will be drawn out of their traditional indoor habitats to experience Toronto in a way they never have before.

The Festival exhibits the creativity of local and international artists and is a winter experience designed to entertain & inspire.

– Toronto Light Fest

This is the first year that this event is being held in Toronto and features artwork and light installations from artists all around the world.

But the most exciting thing about this event is that any donations made to Toronto Light Fest directly goes to Yonge Street Mission’s Evergreen Centre For Street Youth. In fact, they have pledged to meet their goal of $10,000 for YSM.

As we come out of the darkness and into the light with the first annual Toronto Light Festival, we’d like to help bring our less fortunate community members out of the cold and into the warmth this Winter, and we’re so grateful to the community for stepping up to help us achieve this goal.

You have the power to change darkness into light – donate now!

If you are interested in coming out and supporting this amazing event and want to see some of the coolest art exhibits just head over to:

Toronto Historical Distillery District

Monday – Thursday: 6pm – 10pm
Saturday: 6pm – 11pm
Sunday: 6pm – 10pm

You can also donate online at their gofundme page Here
