5 Days for the Homeless in LondonShare Tweet
Dylan, Daniel, Noah with Molson employees Gary Moore and Mike Butts
Took a little road trip last week to London, Ontario to visit three students from the Richard Ivey School of Business who were spending the whole week outside. The students, Dylan Haggart, Noah Goldstein and Daniel Sliwin, were participating in a national fundraising initiative called 5 Days for the Homeless - students across Canada sacrifice basic necessities to raise awareness and money for youth homelessness in their communities.
Daniel contacted Molson a few weeks ago to see if we wanted to get involved in their campaign. We were able to contribute to their efforts with a $4,000 donation which will go directly to support Street Connection, an organization that provides referrals, guidance, support, warm meals and counseling services for street youth in London.
Where the boys ‘lived’ for the week
Local Molson employees Mike Butts, Gary Moore and I stopped in at the University of Western’s Community Centre to see the students on their last day. I was SO impressed! Not only were they in great spirits (I don’t know if I would be after sleeping in the snow), but they raised tons of extra funds and awareness.
I did a quick interview with Daniel about the week:
Proud to play our part. Cheers.
