Mary’s Meals Canada Aligns with Youth Day Toronto and International Recording Artist, B.WinA

Mary's Meals Canada was very pleased to participate in the 13th Annual Youth Day in Toronto on July 21, 2019.

Back to all stories | Posted on 25 July 19

We are very grateful to international recording artist, B.WinA (aka Brent Winter), Tylaine Duggan, founder of Toronto's Youth Day, as well as the many other volunteers and supporters who helped to make this day a huge success. 

Youth Day was created by Canadian Founder and Executive Producer Tylaine Duggan in 2006 to engage young people, and encourage them to find a passion in music, dance, art, photography, fashion and film. Youth Day was originally initiated as a non-profit community event in 2007 in Toronto, and is operated by dedicated volunteers and enabled by Corporate Champions. In just 8 years it went global; Now Youth Day is in it’s second decade! Mary's Meals Canada is grateful to have been able to participate in this year's festivities.

Performing on centre stage at Yonge Dundas Square, following the 6 pm Rose Ceremony, Brent’s powerful lyrics and vocals of his self-penned inaugural release, "The Way" were backed by members of the Toronto Youth Choir (and some Mary's Meals volunteers). Striving to make a global difference with his music, every download of “The Way” will feed 1 meal to a child in need through Mary’s Meals.  

Our Mary's Meals Canada info booth was also very privilieged to have the support of two Orders of Canada - Heather Ostertag of Toronto and Aaju Peter of Nunavut.

With the opportunity for Mary's Meals Canada to raise awareness at Youth Day through our information booth and B.WinA's performance, now hundreds more know that they can help provide a daily meal at school for children in some of the world's poorest communities for just $22. 

Thank you Brent, Tylaine and our Mary's Meals Toronto team! You are making a difference!
