About the cause: Welcome to Toronto: colouring book

As the city of Toronto prepares to receive over 2000 Syrian refugees in the coming months, we are looking to extend a warm welcome.

Welcome to Toronto is a themed colouring book that will help newcomers become acquainted with our multicultural city. The book includes a beautiful collection of illustrations created by talented Toronto artists and designers, with English and Arabic text accompanying each image.

How can you help!

During the month of March, you can purchase a colouring book through our buy-a-book-gift-a-book fundraiser. We aim to raise funds to print enough books to give to each family re-settling in Toronto and the GTA.

You can donate to the cause through the following methods:

  1. Purchase a book online by visiting the Keep6 Shop. The book will be mailed to you the same day. For every book purchased, a book will be donated with additional funds given to refugee services in the city.
  2. Purchase a book in store. We have partnered with SPACING in Toronto as our exclusive partner for local purchase at 401 Richmond St. W.
  3. Come to our event Sunday Feb 28th 1-5 pm at the Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. West!

 

We would like to thank our partners for making this event possible!
