Whitney M. is a recent graduate of Ryerson’s Fashion Communication program and works in Toronto. She called us one day out of the blue to ask if she could drop off the proceeds from a fundraiser she organized.

From the moment she arrived, it was one surprise after another.  First off, she handed us a cheque for $600!!!  For an organization as small as ours, this money goes a long way towards covering the costs of operating our storefront.  Next, she told us about the huge Soul Train dance party (and bake sale) that she organized at Jang Bang (a bar on College).  The event was effectively promoted through Whitney’s event’s page on Facebook and even got picked up by CBC Metro Morning’s weekend event’s listing.

Whitney felt inspired to help the Book Bank after visiting our website and learning about our mission to distribute free children’s books.  We can’t help but feel inspired by Whitney and her tremendous efforts.  Thanks so much to the people who supported Whitney’s events:  delicious treats for the bake sale were supplied by Meagan Bowden of HumblePie and the tunes were provided by DJ Noah McGillivray.

Thanks so much to Whitney for this remarkable contribution.
