Viva El Teatro – May, 2011

Viva El Teatro – May, 2011

En esta primera edición de VIVA EL TEATRO se presentó un repertorio de joyas teatrales que inspiraron, hicieron reír, llorar y pensar a la audiencia. Más importante aún, a través de VIVA EL TEATRO, se logró que la diversa comunidad Hispana de Toronto se una por el amor al arte.

Para la comunidad canadiense en general, VIVA EL TEATRO representa un vehículo de promoción del multiculturalismo y un aporte al enriquecimiento de la vida artística de la ciudad. Siguiendo la filosofía y compromiso social de sus organizadores, Crisálida donó cientos de boletos a organizaciones comunitarias quienes los vendieron para recaudar fondos para sus proyectos y en otros casos, los obsequiaron a personas de pocos recursos económicos.

Las personas que apoyaron VIVA EL TEATRO, contribuyeron a llevar materiales de arte a niños ciegos en Cuba, computadoras a jóvenes pobres en El Salvador, educación a comunidades en Los Andes y apoyo a víctimas de tortura durante la dictadura en Uruguay, entre otras causas nobles. Este es el poder.

TELETON CONTIGO COLOMBIA EN MISSISSAUGA: UN TECHO PARA MI PAIS

En Diciembre del 2010, después de las desbastadoras imágenes y noticias presentadas y escuchadas en los diferentes medios de comunicación acerca de la situación que actualmente viven muchas familias en Colombia a causa de las inundaciones, un grupo de líderes comunitarios Colombianos decidieron unirse y organizar un evento de forma voluntaria para recaudar fondos y ayudar a estas familias damnificadas por el invierno. Fue así como surgió la TELETON CONTIGO COLOMBIA. Un evento de talentos artísticos que se llevó a cabo el día, Sábado 9 de Abril del 2011 en el John Paul II Polish Cultural Centre de Mississauga.

Este día muchos artistas colombianos y latinoamericanos estuvieron presentes donando su talento para ofrecer a toda la comunidad un espectáculo de música y folklor. De igual forma hubo comida típica colombiana, entretenimiento para niños, rifas y concursos para que la comunidad pudiera disfrutar de un día en familia.

El dinero recaudado fue donado a la organización sin ánimo de lucro en Colombia “UN TECHO PARA MI PAIS COLOMBIA”. Organización que busca mejorar la calidad de vida de las familias que viven en situación de pobreza a través de la construcción de viviendas de emergencia y la ejecución de planes de habilitación social, en un trabajo conjunto entre jóvenes voluntarios universitarios y estas comunidades.
