Spring Fest on Campus

March 29 – 31, 2011 from 10am-4pm | Convocation Mall, SFU Burnaby


Spring Fest on Campus will be a three day event where the entire community is invited to have fun helping raise money and awareness of the impact of poverty today. Through live music, food, games and volunteers, we can make a difference in the lives of many.

    “Vancouver has the highest percent of population with low income; the highest percent of working poor families; and the largest and fastest growing income gap between rich and poor. Welfare income [is] also very low in Vancouver, and Vancouver had the second highest number of households which paid more than 30% of their income for rent and/or lived in inadequate housing. Vancouver was also worst for “community affordability.” That means that the combination of low income plus high cost of living makes the poorest fifth of Vancouver residents worse off than those in other cities.”

Thursday will be Japanese Relief Day where money raised under Beneath One Sky’s administration will go to the Canadian Red Cross’ Japanese Relief. A third of the proceeds of the raffle will go to this cause as well.
