Concordia students launch the 2011 "5 days for the homeless" campaign during which they will sleep in the street and fund-raise money for NGO Dans La Rue. Concordia University, Montreal, QC, Canada. 14/03/2011
Concordia students brace themselves for their first night in the street as the 2011 "5 days for the homeless" campaign kick-starts. Between March 13th to 18th, students from Concordia University JMSB, HEC Montreal, and ESG UQAM will sleep in the street and fund-raise money, which will be given back the NGO DansLaRue.org that supports youth at risk.
On Tuesday night guest sleepers will join the ranks of students, including Mahesh Sharma (JMSB teacher), Elisabeth Morey (Concordia Dean of Students), and Christine Long (CTV Montreal).
Since last night 18h they already fund-raised 500$, but they are expecting much more within these 5 days.
