holiday tidbits

Did you know there's a vegetarian food bank? I just found out today - courtesy of Niagara Action for Animals. The Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank has two locations in Toronto, providing food aid for vegetarians of various spiritual, ethical, and health-conscious persuasions, and meat eaters as well. From their website:
The Ontario Vegetarian Food Bank (OVFB) is the only one of its kind in North America and was officially opened on May 11th, 2008. We provide fresh fruits and vegetables along with “vegetarian friendly” non-perishable food items to our clients. Along with these foods, we also provide counselling and referrals to other social services in the GTA.
Volunteer or make a donation if you want to help out.

And if it's the animals you're partial to helping... drop by the Savage Garden (Toronto) for a charity fashion event featuring by To Die for Designs, Cinched Tight, Cyberdog, Lip Service, and Vexy. DJs Razorgrrl, Panzer Glamour, and Pale provide the soundtrack and all proceeds go to Haven of the Heart, WSPA and Soar. It all starts 9pm on Boxing Day.
