Toonies For Tummies

From February 6 – 20, 2014 you can donate $2 in store at several supermarkets across Ontario and the Atlantic provinces. 100% of the funds collected will be donated to breakfast programs, which provide nutritious meals to children in schools.

The numbers are staggering.

One out of every six Canadian children goes to school hungry. Toonies For Tummies helps children who don’t have the “luxury” to start their day with breakfast by raising funds for Breakfast for Learning and the Breakfast Club of Canada.

And all it takes is $2 to make a difference.

How You Can Help

Ghost Launch is seeking submissions of personal accounts, historical ephemera, writing, and art that record, remember, or respond to feminist and queer bookstores that no longer exist in Canada. 

The website will be a space to remember and reflect on vanished bookstores and as a platform for the virtual “launch” of works.  The website will also feature a variety of projects by feminist- and queer-identified artists, writers, performers, and activists.

Produced in conjunction with MY MONUMENT, the forthcoming exhibition at 
the University of Winnipeg’s Gallery 1C03 at the University of Winnipeg by Roewan Crowe, 
cam bush, Steven Leyden Cochrane, and Paul Robles (March 6 - April 5, 2014). 

Please indicate if you would prefer to have your submission published anonymously. 
Submissions may also be emailed as attachments or file-sharing links.
