We believe in the importance of giving back to our community. It is our practice to support a cause with passion and invite others to join in.
Hearts for Change is one such cause. ‘Hosanna’ is an orphanage in rural Kenya that takes in children who are either orphaned or whose parents are no longer able to care for them. They are provided with food, clothing and the opportunity to attend school.
In 2008, a young man named Dion Brash became a volunteer there and was moved by what he encountered. Deciding that he could help make a difference for these children, Dion came back to Canada and started Hearts for Change, a grassroots charity that helps make life better for the children at Hosanna.
We were pleased to be an event sponsor at the 2013 Kingston WriterFest.
Back at Kingston WritersFest in 2014, we were an Event Sponsor (Author! Author!). We sponsored author Eleanor Catton, winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize.
