The Forest of Miracles:
Ending Homelessness Beautifully
The ultimate Canadian Christmas leaves no one out in the cold. In the true spirit of the season, the Festival's "Forest of Miracles" calls out the better angels in all of us. Sponsored and decorated by families, community groups and businesses, the Festival's Christmas trees on beautiful Dundarave Beach have raised over a third of a million dollars since 2008 for the Lookout Society's North Shore Shelter. West Vancouver's firefighters deserve special mention for their heroic in planting this forest and supporting the Shelter. The Lookout Housing + Health Society has used this money to support essential services for the homeless, doubling the transitional services it provides to the most vulnerable members of our community. Dig deep: this season, every penny you donate to Lookout through the Forest of Miracles, up to $50,000, will be matched by a benefactor. Lookout will use the proceeds to buy permanently affordable housing for members of our community exiting homelessness.
