Support a Youth Homelessness Day in Canada

Youth Homelessness is a Canadian issue. Spearheaded by the Virgin Group founder, Sir Richard Branson, and Liberal MP Carolyn Bennett, there is a concerted effort to have November 17th acclaimed Youth Homelessness Awareness in Canada. Currently there is an estimated 65,000 homeless youth in the country. Last year a survey of 1000 Canadians was conducted by the charitable arm of the Virgin Group to specifically investigate people’s understanding about the issue. The survey showed that 87 per cent of the respondents didn’t have an understanding of the scope of the problem.  To learn more, please watch the following:
