Christmas Every Day: Toronto Musicians for Change – Daily Bread Benefit
Our campaign: Christmas Every Day: Toronto Musicians for Change has begun!
My partner in co-writing crime, Elana Harte & I wrote a non-traditional holiday song, “Christmas Every Day”, and it is our hope that we can use it to not only promote awareness of hunger in Toronto, but raise $10,000 for Daily Bread Food Bank. We recorded it with some other community-minded musicians and artists (20 of us in total!)* who donated their time and talents, dubbed “Toronto Musicians for Change”, and we know you’ll enjoy the song, and support us in our fundraising efforts.
Poverty, and the affordability of food, is an unfortunate reality that many people face in our community, and the artist community is no exception. Every year thousands of people across Toronto rely on food banks. Daily Bread serves these people through neighbourhood food banks and meal programs in over 140 member agencies and 200 food programs.
Join us in fighting hunger in our communities and donate today
As a thank you for your donation, we will send you an mp3 of our original song, “Christmas Every Day”
The main message in this song speaks to the incredible results that can be achieved when people come together in the spirit of community and giving.
With that spirit in mind, we enlisted the help of Mitch Girio at Slaughterhouse 754 Recording Studio, and called out to some of Toronto’s talented independent musical community to lend voices and instrumentation. In total 20 musicians and artists came together, making this musical initiative one of the biggest taken on by the Toronto Indie Music Community.
