During the summer months we had announced that with the help of Crayola, we would donate the creative materials from the Temple of Creativity to schools in Ward 3, the ward where A Midsummer’s Dream is held.
Our first stop was Adelaide hoodless, the elementary school where the founders mother went as a young girl.
Dressed as Santa’s elves, the directors of A Midsummer’s Dream brought boxes and boxes of creative materials for all the children to use.
Next stop was Cathy Wever elementary school. Where the jolly three came to bear gifts for all the wonderful children.
It is our great hope that we foster the creative spirit of all children. So when it is their turn to carry the torch, they become conscious caretakers, leaders and innovators. The type of people who serve humanity, and add value to the overall social and environmental eco-systems that this planet desperately needs.
From the team at A Midsummer’s Dream, we hope that you have an amazing 2017.
We are so grateful that we have came this far. When we started back in 2012, it was off of a hope and a dream, with only 800 people in attendance, and 800lbs of food donated to local foodbanks.
Fast forward to 2016, with an attendance of 11,000 and a total food donation of 9,500lbs to local food banks.
We are now the largest colour festival in Canada.
We would not be here today if it wasn’t for everybody who believed.
We have already started planning for 2017, and we are excited to share with you whats next.
Thanks again to Crayola for supporting A Midsummer’s Dream all of these years, and we are happy that they were just as excited about donating to the schools as we were.
From the bottom of our hearts, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
From everybody at A Midsummer’s Dream,
Thank you for your love and support all these years, and we are looking forward to 2017.
