It was an enjoyable event with Equal Voice, UESA members, and friends coming out to enjoy the free food and poems.
We were treated to a touching reading of poems from Natalie Hanna. Natalie Hanna is an Ottawa lawyer who works with low income populations, an alumni of Carleton and uOttawa, and the author of seven chapbooks. To commemorate the Polytechnique massacre that occurred on December 6th 1989, she shared poems that addressed violence against women.
The Samurai Santa kit was given to Natalie Hanna as a thank you for coming out!
Congrats to Jessica Saviotti who won the Gingerbread Cookie mix for her Christmas sweater!
Thank you to our sponsors: Aladdin’s Bakery, Starbucks, David’s Tea, and Michael’s Bakery for supplying the food for this event!
Donations of scarves, hats, and mitts were donated and given to the Cornerstone Women’s Shelter.
