This may be shocking, but we all need to be aware to help make a difference. Here in Canada, thousands of youth experience homelessness and sex trafficking each year.
Youth homelessness in Canada has reached crisis proportions. About 6,000 young people are experiencing homelessness in our country on any given night, which is beyond heartbreaking even to consider.
And in the case of sex trafficking, it is a growing crime in Canada that is often under-reported, under-estimated and largely misunderstood. Over 30 percent of female youth who stay at Covenant House have been involved in some form of the sex industry, including trading sex for food.
For 40 years, Covenant House Toronto has been helping youth ignite their potential and reclaim their lives. As Canada’s largest agency serving youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk, they offer the widest range of 24-7 services to an average of 280 young people each day.
As a national leader, they educate and advocate for long-term changes to improve the lives of vulnerable youth. This includes influencing public policy, leading awareness and prevention programs, and continually building and sharing their knowledge. As a learning organization, they strive for excellence and programs with impact.
Main Mission makes Covenant House’s mission of supporting youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk possible. It is an incredible month-long charity stream campaign that unites professional gamers, content creators and veteran & aspiring streamers to help raise funds and awareness for these inspiring young people.
I’m happy to let you know that I am one of the many creators participating!
From March 7 to April 1, 2022, the Community Stream Campaign takes place. I’ll be hosting my own charity streams to raise funds for Covenant House.
Then, on April 2, join me for the Main Mission Finale as I host one final stream. The big day will also feature our Covenant House Stream-a-thon, including some of the biggest names in streaming, gaming and esports.
The final mission will see the entire community come together on one day to raise maximum funds and have maximum fun!
Anyone can join the mission, utilizing customizable resources and assets to lead their own fundraising stream campaign. Check out our Streamer Toolkit, which has everything you need to get started.
As mentioned, I’m one of many fundraising for those of you looking to support this year, so If you’re able, please donate to support a cause very close to my heart.
