Made With Love: A Catalyst for Change

It’s quite prevalent that the streets of Toronto can get pretty cold during this time of year. Many of us are lucky to be able to run to find warmth, shelter, and food at our homes, work places, and institutions. Though, there are those that are not as lucky.

A group at OCAD’s photo department wanted to become a catalyst for change.

As a team, Tek Yang, Abigail Lomboy, and Candice Linkie, decided to get together and prepare care packages that include basic necessities and treats to bring warmth and hope to the homeless in Toronto. The great part of the care packages is that you can store them away or have it with you on the go to pass along to someone in need. Together, their efforts created 20 care packages, with extra blankets and pajamas to give away. The goal is to provide those who are less fortunate with basic every day necessities, while at the same time, letting them know that there is someone out there thinking about them.

We ask that you give back by taking one of these packages at the photography cage to have with you, to pass along to someone who needs it the most. No one ever really chooses to be homeless. Together, our efforts can make a difference in somebody’s life.
