This Sunday Dec 14th 2014 at Wicked Tattoo & Piercing Inc. in Maple Ridge, BC we will be making history! My good friend Can Can has flown into town and volunteered to be pierced 10,000 times consecutively in one session by yours truly!
This world record attempt will raise the bar for Guinness World Records in the name of Vancouver's at-risk youth:
Family Services of Greater Vancouver has been providing support to Vancouver’s at-risk youth since 1987. Today, Directions Youth Services, a division of Family Services of Greater Vancouver, provides integrated services included a 24 hour drop-in centre in downtown Vancouver, our Safehouse and the only Youth exclusive Detox program in BC.
This holiday season we invite you to give the gift of hope to youth. The cold, wet season of winter is here and for many homeless youth here in Vancouver, the dream of a safe and stable home can be a distant one. This year, we are seeing more youth than we have ever seen before at Directions Youth Services Centre–our round-the-clock resource for homeless youth. Our supplies of the basic hygiene necessities are at record lows and we are looking for donations of any personal hygiene products, especially the following items:
-Shampoo (small or travel/hotel sized bottles are ideal)
Goods can be dropped off at any Family Services of Greater Vancouver office or directly at Directions Youth Services Centre. Please visit www.directionsyouthservices.ca/hope for more information and more suggestions on ways you can get involved. Together, we can give youth the gift of hope.
***This event is open to the media & public on Sunday December 14th 2014 from noon until 11pm at #1 22335 Lougheed Hwy in Maple Ridge, BC. Directions Youth Services will have a staff member on-site for support and information regarding their organization***
