Winter Pack Program for the Homeless in Toronto

Hello, my name is Mark Munroe, and I am the EIC of ADDICTED Magazine based in Toronto, ON, Canada. If you know anything about my story, you know I've struggled with addiction and was even homeless at one point.

As COVID has continued and the year has gone on, we've seen more and more people living on the streets, and now, all of our parks are full of people living in tents, and as the winter comes, it's going to be a very challenging time. So I'm asking for donations from brands, media partners and from you!

Our goal is to make winter packs for as many homeless people as we can.

With 100% of the money raised, we (My team and I) will buy blankets, toques, scarves, gift cards (for Tims, Subways, all food-related) and toiletries (sanitizer, soap, etc.).

We will collect the funds, buy the much-needed supplies, make up the packs, and hand-deliver them ourselves while following COVID procedures and guidelines.

If you can help in any way, I would be so touched, and I know it will make a huge difference this winter.

The fine print:
We will document the process for transparency, but will not be showing any homeless people in the process without permission.
We will keep and publish the receipts after the process.
