When two devastating earthquakes struck Mexico in September, we saw thousands of people come together to help their neighbours. But we knew that Mexicans needed more help to deal with this disaster, so we reached out to our friends in the Happy City community.
Thanks to the support of friends and family, we have donated approximately $1,000 CAD (~14,000 MEX) to the Mexican Red Cross this month.
Through this tragedy we witnessed kindness and generosity grow among strangers. We also observed the critical importance of walkable neighbourhoods and public space for community resilience. And while the emergency has subsided, the country is immersed in a long period of reconstruction. Please consider donating if you have not done so already to the Canadian Red Cross.
