This year I cannot make one of my favorite events so I stayed up late last night to edit a vlog I shot at Project Water Survival in 2017.
Founded in 1999 by Jody Steinhauer, Project Water was conceived in response to the inexcusable fact that more homeless people die from dehydration in the summer than from exposure in the winter.
Safe, clean drinking water is not a luxury, but the human body’s most fundamental need. Unfortunately, it’s a basic need that many homeless individuals in the Greater Toronto area too often go without. Especially during these hot summer months, a bottle of water can save a life.
Project Water has distributed over 2.5 million water bottles to those in desperate need, and that number continues to climb!

Jennifer’s story I reference in my talk: Jennifer is in a wheelchair disabled and STILL homeless in Toronto.
