September is Lend An Ear Month!

September is Lend An Ear Month!

Since we can’t gather in person for Lend An Ear’s 10th Anniversary, we’re spending the month celebrating 10 years of Lend An Ear by remembering the laughter, tears and inspirational moments we’ve experienced since 2011.

We’ll be sharing stories, videos and other content to lendanearyyc.com all month long, but things will really start rolling on September 8th!

Stay tuned to our social media channels or sign up for our newsletter to stay updated.

Lend An Ear is Distress Centre’s signature fundraiser and we depend on it to raise much needed funds to support our crisis services. The COVID-19 pandemic has created uncertainty and distress for our entire community. It is important now more than ever that our services are available to anyone who needs them. Thanks to the support of our amazing Lend An Ear sponsors – Viewpoint Foundation, LAN Solutions, GLJ Ltd., and Altitude Communications – all donations to Lend An Ear 2020 will be matched! Please donate now.

In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, Distress Centre Calgary would like to honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
