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.
Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre
The first step towards a better life.
Meet Victor. He’s 26 years-old and he arrived from Nigeria at the end of November last year. He came to Canada to make a better life for himself. Back home he was the supervisor of a gas station, but here in Canada he plans to finish school and become a computer engineer.
Since arriving in Canada, Victor has been staying at the Men’s Shelter on Lansdowne run by Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre (CONC). But not after this week. Victor has found a room to rent. He moves in to his new home at the end of the week and he’s very exciting about taking this first step towards his better life.
How you can help
Victor is moving into a small apartment where he’s renting a room. Through contacts Victor meet volunteering at CONC, he’s managed to pull together a few dishes and a bed. He doesn’t have much room so he doesn’t need much, but what he does need is a small fridge ($199), a few towels ($16) and grocery store gift cards ($85). Sounds like the type of stuff a few neighbours can help with. You can pool fund for us to purchase these needed items for Victor.
