Radio Opera

Toronto Craft Alert is taking part in RADIO OPERA: A Benefit Concert for CARE Canada hosted by former MuchMusic VJ Hannah Sung and featuring The Constantines, Jason Collett, comedian Sabrina Jalees and DJ Rory Them Finest. We have put together a fabulous little craft table to pump up the fundraising efforts for humanitarian aid organization CARE Canada and its newest youth initiative, YouthCARE.

Proceeds from crafty sales will go towards CARE-led youth peace-building projects in East Timor. The following generous & talented makers have donated their wares for the show:

RADIO OPERA, an all-ages show, will take place at Lee's Palace (529 Bloor Street West) on December 2nd at 2pm (doors 1:30). Advance tickets are currently on sale through Ticketmaster, Rotate This and Soundscapes for $16, or $20 at the door.

Come by to enjoy the show, score some hot goodies at the craft table & support a great cause!

Some more info on CARE & their projects:

This past September, Hannah traveled with CARE Canada to Indonesia to document the recovery of tsunami and earthquake-affected regions, and to East Timor to speak to youth about what they are doing to move forward a country wrought by political instability and violence. As the voice of YouthCARE, she is currently touring the documentary project to schools across eastern Canada and will be presenting November 20 – 28 in the greater Toronto area.

CARE is one of the world's leading humanitarian organizations fighting global poverty in more than 70 developing countries. CARE's projects include emergency relief, preparedness and rehabilitation, and longer-term projects in areas such as education, health, agriculture, HIV/AIDS and small-business development. YouthCARE is CARE Canada's youth inspired initiative.
