Student creates fundraiser in honour of Glee star’s birthday Chrysalis is a charity that supports people who are homeless or unemployed, and helps them get back on their feet. They provide them with the resources they need in order to provide for themselves and their families. “They’re really big on building skills, and that’s partially why I love them,” Zabarsky said. Montieth himself has had struggles as a youth, being nearly homeless at one point. It wasn’t until someone helped him that he was able to go on to become a successful actor, starring in the hit TV show ‘Glee’. Now as a celebrity, Monteith continues to give back to charities, and frequently flies back home to Canada to help out with programs for children.

Zabarsky started the fundraiser in honour of Montieth’s birthday. It started in June 2012, when Zabarsky and her friend decided to do something special for the actor’s 31st birthday. She contacted his agent who said a fundraiser for charity would be the way to go, as he would appreciate it most. Zabarsky contacted the charities that he supports, and Chrysalis was all for the idea. “It’s crazy how much people are willing to donate in honour of someone they idealise.” In just the first two weeks, Cory for Chrysalis managed to raise $265. By May 11, Monteith’s birthday, Zabarsky hopes to have raised $1,000 to $3,000. “It really just depends on getting the word out.”

“I really find that to be something to look up to,” said Zabarsky. The fundraiser that Zabarsky organised took a lot of hard work and responsibility. Though Zabarsky has had help and support from friends and fellow fans, it is her who is in charge of having everything run smoothly. “At the end of the day, if something goes wrong it’s all on me. So everything really has to run by me.” Being involved in every component has been a struggle, but also a good learning experience. Luckily enough she has had help with the advertising and the designing of the website. Having never made a website before, Zabarsky had to have someone help her and teach her how to do it. This was important because it is on the website that you can submit your donation. Once you’ve donated, you are also eligible for prizes. The prizes include signed posters by Cory Monteith, a ‘Glee’ poster signed by the main cast, and books, CD’s and DVD’s related to ‘Glee’. The prizes, which go out internationally, are growing every day. “We’re always on the lookout,” she said. “People are sending us stuff here and there, instead of donating. Everything really helps at this point.” To donate or for more information visit coryforchrysalis.com.

Guides, Scouts to raise funds for natives EMC news - The Third Annual “Portage Over Poverty” Scavenger Hunt is Sunday, April 21. Each year guides raise money to support girls and their families in impoverished communities. This year, they will donate proceeds to Guiding in First Nations communities in Northern Canada. Teams of Ottawa–area teenagers (all members of Guiding and Scouting) will travel around downtown Ottawa on foot in search of photo opportunities suggested by a list of cryptic clues. All of this will be accomplished while portaging a canoe that the team created by hand. Teams involved give an entire day of their time to this charitable fundraiser in addition to the hours spent collecting pledges in advance and making their canoe. The annual fundraising event is hosted by the 2nd Kanata Rangers (Girl Guides of Canada), a group of 20 enthusiastic young women trying to help their sisters in Guiding. The first two “Portage Over Poverty” events have been very successful in gaining support from the community for our cause. In the past two years combined, they have raised over $3,100. For further information email us at PortageOverPoverty@gmail.com.
