On Wednesday, April 5th the Wellington Water Watchers (WWW) is hosting a fundraising event at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto. WWW has enlisted the help of Caroline Brooks from the Good Lovelies, Ben Whiteley, and Molly Johnson. These fabulous Canadian musicians will perform as part of the WWW Say No to Nestle campaign. Doors open at 6:30 pm. with show happening from 7 to 9 pm. Snacks and a cash bar will be available.
WWW is using the evening’s festivities to officially announce Waterstock-- a celebration of water for life not profit, featuring celebrity chefs, musicians, artists, local wineries and breweries, and plenty of free, clean, locally sourced water available from onsite taps and fountains. Waterstock will be celebrated at Bela Farm in Hillsburgh, Ontario from noon to 5 pm. on Sunday, June 11th.
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
