Need some good news in what seems like an upside-down world? These five videos filled with hope, positive energy and personalities will give you the smile you desperately need.
Start by cueing up our bite-size video featuring Chef Aleem Syed, whose The Holy Grill food truck is breaking barriers. Syed customized this travelling restaurant to accommodate his wheelchair so he can take his passion for cooking and feeding people across the GTA.
Then let the sounds of Forte, a gay men’s choir in Toronto, lift your spirits while it lifts up others. See how they’re raising their voices to make change in Toronto communities. And speaking of speaking up, you have to meet Talli Osborne, whose honest talk and sparkling sense of humour go straight to the heart of ability-based discrimination.
When it comes to finding hope, pets and kids always deliver. So watch how Harris the dog helps his friend Atlas handle the daily pressures of living with autism. (Trust us, you’ll need a couple of hankies for this one.) Then, if you want a little cute overload, watch as little ones explain what love is. Don’t we all need a little more of that magic in our lives?
