Rearview Mirror - Great Canadian Giving Challenge

We did not win the $10k prize.
But, with the 1425 chances you gave us we had a shot at it.
The good fortune went to
"The Mission of Truth for Teens
 is to equip indiviuals with the education and tools
 they need to heal from addiction, violence and destructive lifestyles."

Thank you to all our supporters.
