#GiveThanksDay 2018 is on September 15 this year! We are collaborating with Playing For Change Day for the 4th consecutive year in the efforts to raise money to bring free music programs to many children living in Bangladesh, Brazil, Ghana, Mali, Nepal, Rwanda, South Africa, Thailand, Morocco, and Argentina.
On every #GiveThanksDay Music Festival, we provide free wholesome lunch & dinner to approximately 1200+ residents of the DTES, our wonderful local #heArtists graciously collaborate with us annually to bring #music & #heArt to the people. We also provide free personal grooming services for all those in need as well as massage/reflexology therapies, qigong, and Reiki. Nursing students will host free Blood Glucose and Blood Pressure clinics as well as be giving out free condoms to promote safe sex.
** We also have Vancouver Coastal Health’s Peer Programming join us in facilitating FREE NARCAN TRAINING for all those who wish to be First Responders to drug overdoses. All trainees who get certified will be gifted with a FREE NARCAN (injectable) KIT to take with them.
This year we will have additional booths dedicated for youth (most of our volunteers are ages 4 and up) to spearhead a space for the fine arts and for the distribution of care packages for those in need.
All in all, our intention is to be able to heal collectively as a community through altruism and with the notion of having a festival where all people from all walks of life can feel included, valued and honored.
All free food and services are humbly dedicated to the residents of the DTES although everyone is welcome to join in the celebration of music and art. We will have some of Vancouver’s finest musicians collaborating with us to provide an amazing experience for all.
This year, we will be collaborating with True Resolution Lodge #16 & CDI College. They will be providing support in various ways and everyone is welcome to join in on our 4th annual “Give Thanks Day – A Celebration Of A Harmonic Life” taking place at Victory Square, Vancouver on September 15 from 10:30 am to 7:30 pm.
As we are a grassroots organization that solely produce all our events through fundraising & donation efforts. We are very grateful for any donations! 100% of proceeds go directly toward production costs. Thank you in advance to all those who are willing to help be a big part of Give Thanks Day!
