    As you can see with my email address, I do work for TELUS Telecommunication company in Scarborough.

    My department are always looking to help diffrent organizations, not necessarity by giving money but by assisting in painting, whatever t he needs or the organisation is.

    Poverty in Ontario, should not exist, unfortunately it is and getting worse and it breaks my heart. Is there anyway that we can assist, we are a group of approximately 12 people.


  2. I am looking to join any rally to support child poverty. we are group of Social worker students who support child poverty in Toronto.
    Please let me know if you can join any activist group or organization that fights child poverty.
