An open letter to Bryan Adams, and his concert team

bryan adams, accessibility, disability, community living guelph wellington

Thank you, to Bryan Adams and team

It doesn’t have to take much, but when we try to create equity, it can have such a tremendous impact. Thank you Bryan Adams and team for doing just that for someone we support at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex in City of Kitchener.

Open Letter to Bryan and his team… in a moment, you did something that may have seemed ordinary and right. This moment, though, was extraordinary for us. You and your team saw the person we support as a citizen; as someone worthy enough to enjoy the show like anyone else, and made the accommodation to make it happen.

Thank you for creating equity and recognizing that with a little accommodation, M’s price for admission was just as valuable as her able-to-stand friends.

We’re up for an Acorn Prize!

That’s what the people we support have dreamed up for their Guelph Community Living Centre. This space, more commonly known as the ARC Industries building in Guelph, is a gathering place for the people we support. It offers a variety of learning opportunities and day services, and acts as a starting point and hub for the people we support as their find the things that matter most to them in the community.

From January 14th at 8am, until January 25th at 8pm, please vote for us at: https://oaktreeguelph.ca/

The charity with the most votes will receive a $500 prize to be used towards their cause. Your vote will help the people we support make the Guelph Community Living Centre feel more like their own.
