Win a Whistler Staycation, support Zero Ceiling’s work to end youth homelessness. Enter before July 31.

Spending the spring in some version of “lockdown” might have given you cabin fever, or a frustration about the inadequacy of your living situation (annoying roommate? too small a yard?) but what if you have no home?

I think a symptom of privilege is that we can end up wearing a set of blinders to other people’s realities. We might pay an inordinate amount of attention to what our neighbours have in their garage, or keeping up with the Joneses, but we forget that beyond our vision, a lot of people are living completely different challenges.

Zero Ceiling is the leading organization in our region working to end youth homeless. They use the power of the mountains to empower young people, and serve young people who have experienced homelessness or unstable housing, providing access to stable housing, employment, life skills education and mental health support. By providing  a supportive, stable, safe environment where young people can focus on personal growth.

You can also enter to win our 50/50. $5 a chance sees you up to win half of the pot. You can also buy a bundle of 5 chances at the 50/50 for only $20!
