So I’m bowling with a team called 2 Legit 2 Split to raise funds for the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre // Multicultural Women Against Rape (TRCC/MWAR). (I know I know, too many charity things. But they’re important to me.)
It’s a fabulous collective doing hard and necessary work, and I’ve learned so much from the women there, and from taking the calls myself over the past year and a half. If you can and would like to donate, you can do so here.

In Spring 2013, I rode 100km in Ride for Heart. Now I’m kicking it up a notch with the two-day Ride to Conquer Cancer to Niagara and back in June 2014, which benefits Princess Margaret Hospital’s Cancer Centre.
Cancer has affected far too many people in my life, and I’d like to do what I can to make a difference. My fundraising goal is $2500—steep, but I think we can do it. Any donations will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world. My page is set to send funds to wherever the greatest need is. 
 Thanks for your help—any amount is truly appreciated.

In advance of a rare two-week holiday in July, he handed his Twitter feed over to a few of his clients. Most of them were young mothers, who shared their own stories of the choice between keeping a roof over their heads or buying groceries. He and his clients found the endeavour so positive that they set up a new permanent Twitter feed, @MYegstrong, where youths can interact with the public. Thanks so much for the carseat someone generously gave to me, i honestly apreciate it and i feel so blesses and listened to – t., tweeted Tasha, twenty, last summer. Now a mother of two toddlers, she met Cherrington six years ago when she was released from jail into a group home for girls. He was not officially her social worker, but he still gave her rides to school, explained how to access food vouchers, and led her to an arts drop-in centre. He continues to help, even though she is no longer a minor. “Mark sticks around,” she explains.

Hello. This is my new website for professionalish things. I am pretty excited about it!
If you’re looking for any old posts, they’re gone. Poof. Into the ether. It’s for the best, I promise.
Moving forward, this will be a space for showcasing my work with the occasional quote/link/gif. My other Tumblr, which I cannot seem to get rid of, will continue focusing on an extreme amount of silliness with a bit o’ seriousness.
