It’s been an exciting week since posting the introduction of Humans of Danforth East and the first feature, Kari from The Pop Stand. Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I think this is going to be a fun project for us all, and we’re just getting started.
This week I emailed some new businesses in our neighbourhood. I’m hoping to talk with Queenie from Queenie’s Cards in August. I’m meeting with Chris from Firefly Creative Writing this upcoming week, and Cafe Cocoro and I are currently finding a date and time to connect soon. Business owners have also reached out to express their interest in the project — Yvonne and Erin at Origin Wellness and Toni at Elevated Health Associates Inc. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and hearing their stories. I’ll share with you as soon as I can!
If you own a storefront in the Danforth East neighbourhood and would like to share your story with us, I’d love to hear from you. You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org And if you’re a community member who would like to suggest a local business, I’d be happy to hear from you as well.
Hope everyone’s having a great weekend,
