During these trying times, we offer some light-hearted relief by sharing some of the most comical memes, videos and tweets that have popped up over the past few weeks. In the words of Mark Twain, “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” Enjoy.
Boost Child & Youth Advocacy Centre
Eating can be such an inconvenience.
Sometimes, people who can’t afford to eat out, are forced to eat out. Boost Child and Youth Advocacy Centre knows all about the circumstances that often require young people to pull out their wallets despite their finances.
Often the most financially strapped members of our community are forced to deal with our legal system. Young people who have experienced violence and sexual assault find themselves spending hours enduring painful questioning from police and investigators. When that questioning takes place in a courtroom, the days are long and it can last for weeks or months. It should come as no surprise that the judge doesn’t open his/her wallet and ask if the youth wants Italian or Thai for lunch. And yet, it’s super important that the survivor stay hydrated and nourished during the stressful proceedings.
How you can help
Boost needs food vouchers to offer the young people they support when investigations and legal proceedings make eating at home not an option. We’re asking neighbours to pool funds to purchase 20 x $25 Tim Hortons gift cards – making the inconvenience of eating, slightly more convenient.
