Here's how you can contribute to Marci and Masai Ujiri's 'Go Fund Me' page

The Social
It's easy to feel overwhelmed by tragic stories we hear in the news—but for some people, like our very own Marci Ien, it inspires action. She's been working on a very special project with President of the Toronto Raptors, Masai Ujiri. 

On January 22, 2016 tragedy struck Dene High School in La Loche, Saskatchewan. A deadly shooting left the community devastated. While covering the story from Toronto, Marci saw a photo in the Globe and Mail and noticed kids in the community wearing Raptors gear. She decided to reach out to Masai and the pair eventually travelled to La Loche to visit the school.

Masai and Marci recently opened up about the incredible young people in La Loche (we had 10 amazing youth, as well as their school principal Greg Hatch and admin assistant Martha Morin, sit in our audience during the show) and an incredible initiative that's been set up to help the students. Dene High School has an amazing breakfast program that opens it doors to everyone in the community and provides a hot breakfast before school. It's an uplifting environment that allows the community to bond while providing nourishment. Masai and Marci have set up a Go Fund Me page for anyone who is interested in contributing to the cause. Click here to contribute or visit your local RBC branch.

In addition to that, thanks to our friends at RBC, the 10 youth in our audience are each getting $150 to do something good for their communities. It’s all part of RBC’s ‘Make 150 Count’ campaign, an initiative to celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary.
