PARCours: We’re in the Home Stretch!

on

Our HIV / AIDS Fundraiser, PARCours is happening sooooo soon- we have 5 (F-I-V-E, omg) days left until the big day on Sunday October 2nd and we are in crunch time!

So far, we have raised $5,215 of our $25,000 goal, and we super need *your* help to make our Health Services dreams and care a reality!

All funds raised will go towards: 
– Our Street Work program (harm-reduction based tools and support for street-involved youth and drug users of all ages)
– Our Sense Project peer-lead sex ed program
– Our Medical Clinic – open to all youth regardless of status, and the only informed-consent Trans health program for youth in Montreal.

There are SO many ways to support us in our fight to continue providing quality, non-judgemental care to youth and drug-users of all ages:

1. Register as a participant or as a team and ask family, coworkers, (ex)professors, friends to sponsor you

2. Donate fund$ / encourage others to donate

3. Host a creative third party fundraiser

*Like*: having a (by)donation jar to pass around at our next event or social gathering, and letting people know what great things their money is doing! More ideas and cute puppies this way

4. Let everyone know
– Share the Head & Hands CanadaHelps page, and PARCours facebook event and website on your social media with a personal message of why you are supporting
– Go analog – talk to and follow-up with family & friends offline******************************************************


If you care about supporting youth, do the thing(s)!
If you care about HIV / AIDS prevention and resources, do the thing(s)!
If you recognize consent, safer sex, and harm reduction as SO Vital, do the thing(s)!
If you favourite colour is BLUE, (or yellow, or ….) donate and share(!)

We need your support and appreciate you so much!
If you would consider being involved in 1 or all 4 of these ways in helping support our crucial Health Services, the Head & Hands team and all the youth and people who access direct care and support from them would be so grateful. Every bit has a huge impact.

Thanks so much and see you at the Girouard Park chalet at 12pm on Sunday!

PARCours: incredible fundraising incentives!

on

With PARCours only 19(!!) days away, the Head & Hands team is in full swing training– stretching, flexing, picking out our perfect neon outfit ensembles, and of course, reaching out to you – wonderful weberverse!

**We’ve raised $2,530 so far with your support** Let’s keep the momentum going!

This week, we are sharing helpful ideas and tools to support *you* joining the journey with us.

Thinking about becoming a participant but need a boost of PAR-Courage? We’re here for you!

We know that asking close networks of friends and family for money can feel awkward. At the same time, the beauty of peer-to-peer fundraisers is how personal they are. Let your networks know why *you* care about HIV AIDS activism and Hand & Hands’ Health Services – enthusiasm is contagious!

E.g. Do they know that Head & Hands believes in health care for all?
This year, we collaborated closely with Médecins du Monde, a health clinic for people without status: 642 youth accessed our Medical Clinic- including 103 youth without health care, and 53 youth without status. Health care and rapid HIV testing are crucial services that we believe everyone has a right to access – with or without papers.

Ever donor will get a Head &Hands thank you card and newsletter!

Another great tool for getting people excited about supporting you is offering… incredible incentives!
Offering donors perks by amount of money donated, or as they help you reach milestones of your fundraising goal can be great (and fun) motivators.

Here’s a list of amazing incentive ideas from H&H staff to help get you more and more inspired:

  • Writing each donor a poem
  • Sing a song for each donor who donates x amount
  • Tea party or 5-a-7 for donors
  • Donors voting for a new hair colour
  • Donors voting for pieces of your PARCours costume / outfit
  • Dressing up in a cupid costume and handing out condoms at McGill
  • Personal shopping or consulting session
  • Hosting a musical event or workshop
  • Fulfilling your internet celebrity dreams making motivational workout videos at each fundraising milestone

It’s better together! Consider teaming up with others to turn your fabulous fundraising dreams into reality:

  • Busking with friends & coworkers
  • Selling drawings or doing tattoos
  • Selling soap (or other homemade goods!)
  • Getting donations (gift cards, items, etc.) and then raffling them off and donating the money
  • Setting up an “auction” at your next event/party for services

So much amazing content! What emerged that’s key is: tapping into your hobbies, skills, fave activities, and using them to inspire your campaigning!

Check out the personal fundraising pages on our CanadaHelps for further inspiration – search for “Head and Hands” under ‘Find a Team’.

Bubbling with ideas? Sign up as an individual or as a team (teamwork makes the dream work) and write up your own!

Considering donating? Giving in support of HIV AIDS communities and resources is a gift in and of itself(!), BUT having the golden opportunity to make your friend dress up as cupid and bless the world with condoms is pretty priceless too!

We’re gearing up for PARCours! Our annual HIV/AIDS fall fundraiser is taking a new, exciting neighbourhood-based approach this year and we are so stoked. A roving celebration through the streets of NDG, we’re keeping it local and vocal to raise funds to support Head & Hands’ amazing health services, meet continued needs in our communities, and celebrate how far we’ve come as we look towards the future.
Come join the journey with us!

This year, our goal is to raise $25,000 for our health services! Big numbers can be intimidating, but we know with your support that anything is possible! 
*We’ve raised $215 already*#wevegotthis

—————

Did you know?
Nearly one-quarter of all new HIV diagnoses in 2013 were in youth.1

HIV disproportionately impacts marginalized youth: The HIV prevalence rate for street-involved and homeless youth is five times the national youth average, while the rates for youth who inject drugs and young Men who have Sex with Men (MSM) are 15 and 20 times higher, respectively.2

Indigenous populations have incidence (new HIV infection) rates 2.7 times higher than people of other ethnicities.3

—————

At Head & Hands, we believe that our role in the movement to end HIV/AIDS means focusing on honest, youth-tailored methods of reducing risk of infection, holistic resources and support for people living with HIV/AIDS, and fighting stigma and criminalization.
We are committed to meeting youth where they’re at- providing the tools and resources they need to make informed decisions. We know that risk reduction works!

Your donation will go towards our three core health services:

1) Our twice-weekly medical clinics were accessed 785 times last year! Committed to levelling systemic and societal barriers to access to quality health care, our clinic welcomes all clients regardless of status, health insurance, and financial resources, and runs Montreal’s only trans health program for youth using an informed consent intake process.

2) The Sense Project is our peer-based sex-ed program! Reaching nearly 1700 youth last year – the project offers a series of holistic workshops covering topics including STIs, consent, gender identity, sexual orientation, contraception, and more!

3) Our Street Work program distributed 7,875 injection kits, 298 crack pipes, and 14,828 condoms last year! The only program of its kind in NDG, the program provides in-the-streets risk reduction resources and holistic support to youth and drug-users facing discrimination and marginalization.

—————

Just can’t get enough? Don’t worry, we have SO many more reasons for you to $upport and celebrate in the streets with us!

In the coming weeks, we will be interviewing PARCours-ers and donors to ask why they’re supporting, along with other sweet surprises!

parcour pitch pt. ii

CLICK ME TO SEE THE FULL POSTER!!

 

Well dear readers it’s time for our annual fall fundraising to benefit our amazing Head & Hands Health Services: Street Work, Medical Services, and the Sense Project!

As you know (because you are a devoted and loving fan) every fall we take part in fundraising for our amazing health services, with a focus on supporting HIV/AIDS communities! This year, organizations from around Montreal and Quebec have an opportunity to come together to not only meet continued needs in our communities, but also work together in a celebration of progress as we look towards the future.

You: “Wait, wait, wait…so what’s happening?” 

I’ll tell you! On October 2nd, 2016, we will be coming together with other incredible organizations for PARCours. This event is all about togetherness and helping one another in our diverse efforts for supporting HIV/AIDS communities!

The event will also be local to Head & Hands!!! We will be walking, dancing, rolling, moving, and celebrating in the streets around Parc Girouard in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, before a fun-filled (hopefully not too cold) park hang!

You: “This sounds so amazing I’m so hype and excited! How can I get involved?” 

There are so many ways that you can support us! I’m so so happy that you want to, thank you so much in your interest!!

  1. You can support us by joining us on our journey. Do you want to join as an individualDo you want to create a team and fundraise with your friends? YOU CAN DO BOTH OF THOSE THINGS!
  2. You can volunteer or come on the day to dance with us or eat!
  3. You can donate to an individual or to Head & Hands as a whole! 

You: “So let’s say I decide to donate. What does my donation even do?” 

Supporting PARCours means supporting Head & Hands’ amazing health services: the free medical clinic, our peer-based sex-ed Sense Project, and our Street Work Program! Last year, we raised $26,000 for our health services, and we can’t wait to reach even higher! We want to continue to meet youth where they’re at and give them the support that they need, but we can’t do it without the amazing relationships we build with our donors!

To find out more about what your gifts make possible, you can read our 2016 Annual Report,.

You: “Quick question… Why ‘PARCours’?” 

In French, parcours is a journey or a path. For us, this year’s event is just that! All different organizations, with all different styles, working towards the same goal and taking the same route along the way. And of course, we’ll be in Parc Girouard!

You: I WANT TO KNOW SO MUCH MORE INFORMATIONS!! 

I KNOW YOU DO, BECAUSE YOU’RE THE BEST!
To know more, you can email Richenda at membres@headandhands.ca, or Cinder at specialprojects@headandhands.ca – we’re here to answer each and every concern!

AGM 2016- Proposed bylaw Changes!

on

We will be hosting our AGM on July 4th 2016 at 5:30pm in the old wading pool in beautiful Girouard Park. Theres lot’s on the agenda- we will tell you about the year we had, exciting plans for the future, we will vote in new board members,  and we will be proposing a number of bylaw changes! We are going to need your input and help! The proposed changes document is long, and text heavy, so please take a look at them before the AGM.  If you would prefer to talk them through rather then read them, that’s no problem- just get in touch and we’d be more than happy to chat. Of course, you should also get in touch if you have any questions.

Thanks! See you on the 4th of July, if not sooner!

SERVE 2016 IS HERE

Is there a better feeling than the excitement that  comes from putting our gloves and coats back into our closet for the next six month, and saying goodbye to the boots we pranced around in all winter long?

It’s finally time to welcome Spring, and of course, the arrival of a new season is usually coupled with the welcoming of new and exciting challenges.

For people like me who have missed out on accomplishing their early New Year’s resolutions  (like heading back to the gym or starting to eat healthier) thankfully the arrival of buds can often be a second chance for new beginnings, thus creating an improved and empowered versions of ourselves.

On my side, I am ‘in ’between beginning my contract as a new Serve coordinator and ‘’restarting’’ my diet left between the doors of February and March.

The countdown has begun! For the next few months,  with the help of our dynamic and motivated team, we will work together, mixing all the best ingredients to make the 11th  annual Serve an amazing experience.

Serve is an initiative that we put on for old and new friends of Head & Hands, but for those who are hearing it for the first time, let me give you a little introduction:

Serve is the fundraising idea of the century!  It’s the perfect fusion of community action and education. Through this volleyball tournament, bars and restaurants  face off to fundraise for the Sense Project, our sexual education program.  In 2005, the Quebec government removed sex education as a mandatory part of the curriculum, so Head & Hands created the Sense Project to fill that gap.

Let me give you 5 kicking good reasons why you should be at Serve on July 24th.

  1. Bow down’’ to the sand: if you’re like me and you hate that annoying crunching noise of boots on snow, Serve is the perfect time to enjoy the beach volleyball courts and to let the little grains of sand caress your feet.
  2. Combine the useful and the enjoyable, by supporting a good cause: help us in our mission to inform and educate our youth! The Sense Project is coordinated by amazing animators who travel around Montreal responding to youths’ questions and giving workshops.
  3. Take the chance to be carried away by new smiles: if you’re like me and your winter has ended with a tough break-up, Serve will be a great opportunity to embrace all things new, because when you smile at life, life smiles back.
  4. Sip some refreshing beer or pop in the warm weather, definitely what we love most about summer.
  5. Allow yourself to cut loose a little, to step out of your daily routine : because every summer has its story.

#Sunscreen #sunglasses #beach #volleyball #drinks #Sunday: you’ve got all the #best #summer #hashtags at #Servemtl. Mark July 24th into your schedule and come share in the fun.

Give the Gift: A Love Letter for Head & Hands

Give the Gift: A Love Letter for Head & Hands

happy valentine's!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

For the past seven months, I have been working at Head & Hands as a Special Events and Fundraising Assistant, and what a journey has it been. Although, it is now time for us to part ways, it certainly is not the end of one of the healthiest most wonderful, and rewarding relationship, I have ever experienced. It has been a labour of love from beginning to end, every second spent at H&H has been magical. Of course, I was already quite familiar with the organization, but I did not expect to be this enthralled. From the first moment I stepped foot into the office, I fell in love with the staff, the clients, its mission, programs and services, and even its oddly charming offices.It has never been a chore to get up in the morning to go work, because I know that every day is filled with a degree of excitement. It is with great sadness that I have to  leave the first job that I actually genuinely loved and enjoyed, but it only makes me appreciate the organization even more. My time at H&H has truly been a life-changing experience that I will forever cherish, and from the bottom of my heart I thank H&H not only for all that it has given me, but for all of the amazing work it does for its clients and the community. In my heart H&H is the best nonprofit organization out there, and it deserves all the support it can get.

Whether or not one could argue that Valentine’s day has been commercialized and is no longer representative of a celebration of love, the presence of love all around us is undeniable, and with everything happening around the world, there is no harm in being reminded that love is the most powerful and positive energy in the universe. Love and compassion are the driving force that compels us to work for social change. Although some of us tend to ignore the holiday all together, out of principle, a lack of interest, or because we are single, it is of the utmost importance to take a second to think about everyone we appreciate, and most of all take care ourselves. Ok so, Valentine’s Day is just like every other day, and we should celebrate love on a daily basis, but if you have been forgetful lately, why not use the day as an excuse to take yourself out on a date,  treat yourself to something nice, or just do something that makes you feel good? Give the Gift is a great way to make you feel good about yourself, and also a way of making a difference in your community, by supporting Head & Hands (H&H).

If you care about H&H and its clients as much as I do, Valentine’s Day is a wonderful occasion to show your appreciation and devotion to the organization by “giving the gift” of making a difference and making yourself feel good in the process. Give the Gift  to everyone to help us meet the growing demand for our medical, social, and legal services! This past year alone, our health services were accessed by over 1,200 youth, close to 6,520 clean injection kits were distributed by our Street Worker, and an estimated 309 people registered for the emergency food pantry. No matter who is on the receiving end, there is nothing more satisfying than the goodness that comes from a donation being made in one’s honour to support youth in our community.

Gifts of all sizes make a difference to Montreal youth:

  • $15 provides 2 days of healthy food for a young family
  • $25 funds one counselling session
  • $50 covers the cost of 5 after-school tutoring sessions
  • $75 allows us to give one sexual health workshop to a group of youth
  • $250 puts our Street Worker in the community for 15 hours of outre
  • ach, distributing clean needles, crack pipes, and condoms
  • $500 foots the bill for one week of evening medical clinics

Solidarity Through Action: Spotlight on Third Eye Ensemble

Solidarity Through Action: Spotlight on Third Eye Ensemble

3d

Solidarity Through Action encourages students as well as the public to lead peer-to-peer fundraising campaigns and special events in their communities to help support Head & Hands. We all share common  goals, ideas, and the belief that the causes we hold dear are worth “our” time and effort. The desire to bring about social change is that common ground that creates unity and compels us to work together in solidarity.

The Third Eye Ensemble (TEE) truly understands the meaning of solidarity. As a non-profit theater company that dedicates itself to producing engaging and thought-provoking material, TEE consistently works to not only help create meaningful work for artists themselves, but to also help community organizations, including Head & Hands (H&H).

Co-Founder and Artistic Co-Director Anne-Marie Saheb says that the TEE is “an artist founded company whose mandate is to produce work that challenges audiences to fully explore common perceptions about social, political, and environmental issues”.TEE supported  H&H by donating funds raised from the production of the play Blue/Orange because of our commitment to the  physical and mental health of Montreal’s youth.

Blue/ Orange is a provocative,  satirical comedy that centers around racial dynamics and mental illness. Anne-Marie, graciously provided H&H  with an exclusive interview on third-party fundraising, the ensemble, and its relationship with community organizations.

H&H: How and why was the Third Eye Ensemble created?

TEE: The idea started with Frederick Ward (Founding Father and Chairman Emeritus of TEE) and a few emerging artists who sought to develop as actors, directors, writers, and producers, with the intention of providing a platform for recent graduates of the DOME (Dawson College Theater) to produce independent theater.

TEE was established in 2011 when we introduced ourselves to the community by presenting our inaugural production of The Exonerated, which involved the 13 actors of the ensemble.

The Ensemble’s core has adapted, to the ever-changing careers and lives of its members. We now find ourselves where we are today, with myself and Jaa as Artistic Co-Directors. Throughout this process, our mission statement remains the same:

“To persevere in our artistic service to humanity, never cloud imagination with facts, but to be truthful in our testimony.”  – FREDERICK WARD

H&H: Why did you choose Head & Hands as the recipient of the funds raised by the ensemble?

THIRD

TEE: I had the privilege of directing our production of Blue/Orange, a play by Joe Penhall, touching on cultural differences and mental illness. In looking for a local organization that could benefit from a portion of our proceeds as well as have a particular interest in the story we were telling, I came across Head & Hands.

It is vital for members of a community to support each other, exchange ideas, and transfer knowledge by stimulating communication and bridging gaps between information and understanding. Communities, in turn, thrive on each other’s discoveries. Humanity then inevitably benefits and grows. As non-profit organizations, both Head & Hands and the Third Eye Ensemble want to see a healthy society in which we empower every individual with the resources required to stay healthy.

orange

H&H: Why did you get involved with Solidarity Through Action?

TEE: The survival of non-profit organizations depends on people who feel compelled to support them. In order to feel compelled, people must first know these organizations exist and for that, organizations must reach out to the public and share why they do what they do, tell people what they believe in.The key to reaching out is to develop contacts outside of immediate partnerships.Those exchanges can create a very supportive network and that’s a great environment for fundraising opportunities.

Head & Hands is extremely grateful to the Third Eye Ensemble for working in solidarity with others, to encourage social change while promoting youth empowerment through engagement.

Solidarity Through Action is a great way to get involved and support Head & Hands’ core programs and services.

Solidarity Through Action With Jam For Justice (J4J)

on

On September 24th 2015, Jam for Justice (J4J) a little know non-profit student organization that organizes and hosts benefit concerts to support community organizations and Montreal’s local talent, took L’Alizé’s stage by storm to support Head & Hands. The crew took the initiative via Head & Hands’ peer-to-peer third party fundraising program Solidarity Through Action. The benefit concert focused on the MusikAddict program offered by Head & Hands’ very own Jeunesse 2000 (J2K) youth drop-in center. The production drew a significant crowd by showcasing acts such as MOOCH, Winterstone, as well as Magi Merlin, and   raised funds for our programs.

President Dave Fang, VP Michelle Shi, VP External Jamie Snytte, VP Design Prerna Ramaswamy, VP Internal Liang Chen, and VP Finance/Charity of the McGill Students’ Chapter of Jam for Justice Aidan Steinmetz-Wood, gracefully provided us with some insight into Jam for Justice. The team works wonders together and makes a concerted effort to promote social change through music..

J4J Crew

The J4J crew Michelle Shi, Aidan Steinmetz-Wood, and Toby Moore

H&H: Why did you decide to organize a benefit concert for Head & Hands specifically?

Aidan: For each benefit concert, all the execs research a charity that is important to them and that they want to donate to. We then have a meeting and vote on which one we all like best. For this concert, Head & Hands was actually my choice. My mom worked with you guys when she was in her twenties, so I looked you guys up and really liked what I saw. We really liked the idea behind the MusikAddict program that promotes musical growth in kids and teenagers, so we decided to donate to you guys.

Magi Merlin

H&H: Why did you get involved with Solidarity Through Action by holding your own fundraiser?

Aidan: I think that third party funding is important because it supports charities that may not have the manpower to fundraise for themselves, and it helps expose the charities to the world. As a University chapter one of our main goals is to expose McGill students to local charities and initiatives. Many students are not from Montreal and just stay in the “McGill Bubble”, so they aren’t exposed to what’s going on in much of the city. Our concerts introduce these students to different charities and organizations that they can support or get involved with.”

Jam for Justice takes great pride in helping community organizations and its youth by showcasing local musical talent in innovative ways. Head & Hands is extremely grateful to Jam for Justice for working in solidarity with others, to encourage social change while promoting youth empowerment through engagement.
