Fashions Fade, Style Is Eternal

Shear Kindness – Canvas for Cancer

In Uncategorized on January 28, 2011 at 9:11 pm

On Wednesday night I attended a charity event run by creative, Brii Rose who is also the brainchild behind this very worthy charity, Canvas for Cancer.  Like you, me and probably the person sitting next to you or passing you on the street, cancer has affected all of us in some way and was too close to home in Brii’s case so she decided to make a difference – using her talents and giving other creatives the chance to help out as well.

There has never been a fundraiser based on the beauty of the human body quite like this one before. A self proclaimed “modified” benefit, Canvas for Cancer focuses on the art of body modifications in our community. The event will act as a entertainment gallery night with all the net proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society and being organized by 100% volunteers, it’s not only a way to help and support the community, but to support cancer patients and survivors, as well as have a good time and celebrate life.

Brii has many events lined up, but this particular one was held at a funky hair salon where donators got their hair snipped for very reduced prices.  All the proceeds are passed on to the Canadian Cancer Society (http://www.cancer.ca) which covers the different types of cancer as well as the after care/recovery.

To keep up to date with future events, such as the Rockabilly Bowling Tournament, Acoustic night as well as paintings that will go on auction soon, behind the scene pics, news updates and newsletters, lucky draws and more, log onto the charity’s FB page:
