It's Toque Tuesday in Canada: Fight Homelessness


Treehugger follows initiatives to alleviate homelessness, like Architecture for Humanity and Designboom's Shelter in a Cart. In Canada, today is Toque Tuesday, "a national campaign that gives people from all walks of life the chance to raise funds, raise fun and raise awareness in the fight against homelessness in Canada." Buy a special Raising The Roof toque with a minimum $10 donation at any Home Depot in Canada to support programs and initiatives "which help make a difference in the lives of thousands of men, women and children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness." Raising the Roof is a charitable organization dedicated to long-term solutions to homelessness. They try to build awareness about homelessness and what can be done; they raise funds for community groups working to alleviate homelessness. ::Raising the Roof
