RAISED OVER $15000 SINCE 2016
In 2020 Art Rapture raised $1000 for Feed The Frontline Canada, a charity focused on providing free meals for frontline healthcare workers during the Covid-19 pandemic. We also raised over $1800 worth of food for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank in May 2020 and $1125 for Dr. Peter Aids Foundation with a focus on Art Therapy.
Furthermore, since 2016, Art Rapture has donated over $12,250 from art sales to The Push For Change, a Canadian charity focused on eliminating youth homelessness.
On May 1, 2016, Joe Roberts, former homeless youth, embarked on a massive 17 month, 9000km journey while pushing a shopping cart across Canada to raise awareness and dollars to end youth homelessness.
This national trek began on May 1, 2016 from St. John’s Newfoundland and ended on September 30, 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Throughout this journey, Joe engaged with Canada’s population by stopping at over 300 secondary schools and immersing his passion in over 200 community engagements.
The Art Rapture team encourages you to support The Push For Change by visiting their website (www.thepushforchange.com), becoming familiar with the challenges our nation faces with youth homelessness, and finding ways to help make a difference in our community.
