GivingTuesday is today!

Today is GivingTuesday

Today is Giving Tuesday, a time when communities can harness the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities. London, your eagerness to help UP warms our hearts, and we will continue to honour your support by doing our best to meet our participants’ needs and address London’s housing crisis.

In truth, we send you this message to not only celebrate a single day, but to express our gratitude for all of the support you have given us during the past two weeks. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed system gaps that must be filled, and we rely on our supporters to help us advocate for, usher in and put into practice the change we need to address homelessness in London.

There is still time to donate:
Today is your last day to donate to our Giving Tuesday campaign. Your gift will receive extra clout thanks to a generous matching pledge from Chris and Lina Bowden (up to $5,000), but only until the end of today! If you were looking to donate, now is the time to do it!

Huge success for UPwithART w/ Museum London Partnership

Huge success for UPwithART w/ Museum London Partnership

THANK YOU!!

The 9th Annual UPwithART show, in partnership with Centre at the Fork – Museum London, was an incredible success with enormous thanks to you! We successfully raised over $150,000 at Museum London on April 27th, 2019, with 70 works of awesome art on display along with our guests’ love of art, a passion to end homelessness, and genuine support for Unity Project.

This year your support of UPwithART is currently at work supporting Unity Project to adapt “Housing First” to our emergency shelter framework and helping vulnerable people (aged 16 and up) end or avoid their experience of homelessness through diverting people from shelter, obtaining safe housing, and maintaining stability within the community. With a new partnership formed with Museum London, your gift is also at work supporting children and Indigenous programming to deepen the visitor experience and advance a lively, creative cultural centre that inspires, encourages and engages the community.

We are extremely grateful for your continued support, participation and presence within the community, and together we are able to exhibit the intersection of arts, culture & social justice and the importance of them in establishing a vibrant community.

We hope you join us next year at Museum London for the cities best arty-party! 

Thank-you on behalf of the UPwithART Committee:
Silvia Langer, Brian Meehan, Anita Schipper, Sarah White, Peter Lebel, Lisa Mc Dougall, Moira McKee, David Merritt, Mitra Shreeram, Lucas Stenning,Janice Strickland, Diana Tamblyn, Ian Tripp, Lucretia Geleynse
