Back At It
Rewind to when the Oprah Show was still a thing – can you recall arguably one of the most iconic surprises in the history of the show? It’s the episode where she gave everyone in the audience a brand new Pontiac G6 while screaming, “You get a car! You get a car! Everyone gets a CAR!” We want to recreate that moment, but instead of Oprah, its Troopers, instead of cars, its backpacks, and instead of audience members, its kids! Sounds thrilling, right?
We don’t want to give just one backpack away; we want to give 11! At the Romeo House, there’s a variety pack of totally awesome and wildly talented refugee kids ranging from ages 3-18 who need help getting a kickstart to their school year.
There’s 6 families in total with kids getting ready for school : a 12-year-old girl and 17-year-old boy from Mexico; a 7-year-old girl and 14-year-old-boy from the Middle East; a 12-year-old boy from Colombia; a 12-year-old-boy and 18-year-old girl from Iran; 9 and 12-year-old girls from Mexico; and, a another Middle Eastern family with daughters aged 4 and 6. For six of the kids, this will be there first time attending school in Canada!
How you can help
We’re pooling funds to purchase 11 backpacks. We’ve got a wish list from each of the kids so we can make like Oprah and give these kids a special gift to start their school year off with a bang.
