LTL is in the middle of a campaign for supplies for our partners and programs in DRC. It is wonderful to see so many people from all over Canada respond to our call for action.
Athabasca, Ab is a small community with a heart of gold! When we were approached by Gina Martel about our needs at the feeding program, “Feed Their Tummies”, we were surprised when they offered us help. The timing was remarkable!
Gina Martel and Leah Cook are active members the community. Every year, Leah puts together a Christmas concert of around 100 choir members and raises funds for various local
Both Directors are donating a portion of the proceeds to our campaign in
addition to any props we can use for the kids at the orphanage!

Tell us about yourselves and your business:
We are an after school musical theatre program. We have two classes, one called Team Spirit which is kids 11 and under, and Spirit INC which is 12 & up. This is our second musical comedy this year. We teach kids about music, movement, and acting, and apply the knowledge to a show each term. While the ultimate goal is to have a really polished show by the end, we also really get to see so much more benefit to these kids just to be involved in the process. We learn how to support each other, collaborate, and find ways to express ourselves in ways that they may not otherwise be exposed to.
What is the show about?
This show is called "How to Eat Like A Child." It really is a fun look at our daily routines through the eyes of our children. I think parents will really enjoy this especially because we have been in their shoes and can remember feeling this way, but we can now see the other side of the coin now as we parent our own children.
What age group does it target?
This show is a family show geared for all ages. It is clean , funny, and universal. Fun for the whole family. We started working on this show in January, so we are really eager to share the fruits of our labor!
Why do want to support our campaign?
We wanted to support this campaign for many reasons. First we really believe that it is a great cause, and we want the kids to feel good about the fact that all of the work they have put into this is going to result in a positive impact in the world. They are making a difference through their work every week. We also feel that it is fitting for these kids to be helping other kids, they can relate more to the cause this way.
If you're in the area, be sure to catch this show and lend your support to this team of children who are showcasing their talents for children in the DRC.
