Toque Tuesday

toque.jpgThis Tuesday, Feb. 6th is Toque Tuesday. To all those non-Canadians out there you could also call it “Knit Cap Tuesday”, “Beanie Tuesday” or “Stocking Cap Tuesday”.

The Toque Campaign is a national campaign that gives people from all walks of life the chance to raise funds, raise fun and raise awareness in the fight against homelessness in Canada. This year, Raising the Roof celebrates the 10th anniversary of this popular fundraiser. Since 1997, Raising the Roof has sold close to 500,000 toques to Canadians wishing to demonstrate their support for solutions to homelessness!

Warm your head and your heart! Buy your special Raising The Roof toque — available in winter white, bright red or classic black — in exchange for a minimum $10 donation to support programs and initiatives which help make a difference in the lives of thousands of men, women and children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Then, proudly wear your toque on Toque Tuesday – February 6th, 2007 – to show that you care about Canada’s homeless. [RaisingTheRoof.org]

You can pick up your toque at any Home Depot location in Canada, or online and help support a cause with a HUGE need in this city.
