Thank you to all of our generous donors - this would not be possible without your support! We are especially grateful to Jean + Steve and your guests for your generous wedding gift donations! Here is a glimpse at 6 months of our data (August 12-February 12) - we have reversed 168 overdoses!

Please join us on Tuesday February 20th at noon at King + University for National Day of Action on the Overdose Crisis. We will rally in cities across the country on this day to demand decriminalization of drugs and the people who use them. Please come! Toronto’s meeting is in front of the Department of Justice.

Today marks our sixth month anniversary of operations in Moss Park. Thank you for supporting our collective resistance and for your contribution to this necessary and direct action. We are fighting the drug war on the ground, in the media, and in politics, and we have done so much in just six months - created a community, changed policy, and saved lives. Thank you for your commitment, resilience and resolve - we couldn't have achieved all of this without your support!

Thank you for the continued outpouring of support! The money and your comments are warming our hearts amidst this intense cold snap. We are purchasing supplies like juice boxes, socks, hot packs, and water but cannot keep up with demand so the in kind donations have been most welcome! Gift cards are also amazing in 5-10$ denominations. Please know that you are saving lives with these donations. Thank you!!!

Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, we have reached our fundraising goal of 75K before year end! Thank you Toronto for stepping up, when the government and its policies are lagging behind. Thank you for supporting this lifesaving direct action and thank you for loving people who use drugs as much as we do.
On deck for 2018 is a party to celebrate our 175+ volunteers who have shown up every day since August 12 to save lives, in sweltering heat, bitter cold, fierce winds and extremely challenging circumstances that had nothing to do with the weather. This is a collective effort that we want to recognize and acknowledge in a formal way (and party!). Plus, we are Torontonians of the year!!!
Thank you Toronto!
