Cory Monteith was a very caring and giving individual. One thing we can all do to honor his memory, is to donate and get involved in the charities that were closest to his heart. Below you will find all the information that allows you to do just that.
ABOUT PROJECT LIMELIGHT SOCIETY:
Co-Founded by sisters Donalda Weaver and Maureen Webb, Project Limelight Society unleashes the imagination, awakens curiosity and gives children the opportunity to experience the magic of applause. Open to young people aged 8 to 15 in the Strathcona district, the program offers youth living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside a safe place to build an artistic community. Participants learn skills, techniques and forms of expression, including clowning, creative writing, voice work, movement and improvisation. They rehearse a full-length theatrical production for 3 months, leading up to a final performance on a community stage, giving participants the opportunity to showcase everything they have accomplished. Project Limelight also provides healthy meals and snacks to Limelight participants through the generous support of East of Main Cafe. In addition to supplying healthy meals, all profits from East of Main Cafe are donated to Project Limelight Society. Visit www.projectlimelightsociety.org for more information.
