Raised by 17 people in 21 months
Move the Toronto Light Festival light cannons by donating! Your contribution will be part of a large crowdfunded donation to The Yonge Street Mission, a local charity that has been assisting our neighbors in need since 1896. The funds raised will help Toronto's street-involved youth through YSM's Evergreen Centre For Street Youth.

As you, your friends, and community donate, two light cannons ( high powered search lights ) at the Toronto Light Festival will shift to move their beams of light closer and closer together.  As we reach our goal of $10,000, the beams will cross, lighting up the night in celebration!

The Distillery District and El Catrin  have each pledged $1000 towards our goal - now it's up to you! The Toronto Light Festival runs Janury 27 - March 12, and in that time, we need to hit our goal so that those in need can benefit most from your donations.

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!

Thank you for your support!
