Coats For Homeless Youth

IMAGINE SPENDING A NIGHT SLEEPING ON THE STREET.

NOW IMAGINE DOING THIS IN THE DEAD OF WINTER




There are thousands of homeless youth across the country doing this every night.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

YOU CAN HELP.

EVERY DOLLAR RAISED GOES DIRECTLY TOWARDS THE PURCHASE OF BRAND NEW HOODED WINTER COATS
.



CANADIAN WINTERS ARE ROUGH, THE LEAST WE CAN DO IS TRY TO KEEP SOME KIDS WARM.

Your donation can be the difference between life and death.

Some sobering statistics

1/3 OF CANADA'S HOMELESS POPULATION IS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 16-24

40% OF CANADA'S HOMELESS YOUTH ARE LGBQT
