When was the last time you said “thank you” to your health? | 5-min read

If you commute to Glendon via TTC, you probably know where Sunnybrook Hospital is. This Thanksgiving, our Glendon eAmbassadors team is talking about what we're thankful for; we call it #ThanksGLiving! Check out the posts this week by using the hashtag across social media!

I am homeless and apparently so are you #whyareYUhere

Yes, I may have just called you homeless. BUT. Before you start throwing shade (or shelter my way... depending on the type of person you are since I'm also homeless), let me explain. I am not homeless - I am blessed to be living under a roof with heat - though sometimes it's a battle to use…

VIDEO: Camping but not really – A day in the life of a Meso refugee

After last week's elections, a number of  Americans from what I've noticed seem to want to hop in to their cars on a one-way road trip to Canada ASAP.

*Thoughts on Terrorism: Love, it might save a soul

Give in to your fear of misfortune, You will harden your heart. Lead yourself to ignorance, You will be prone to hatred. Neglect compassion for humanity, You will have killed good emotion. Could you forgive more? Share more? Smile more? Try more? ...Just a little more? Are you not a lover of unity? Is it not…

Doing life afraid – In honour of #BellLetsTalk

I really wanted to join in the talk about mental health this week with my fellow eAmbassadors to stress the importance of realizing and taking care of the state of your mind. And, when better to talk about mental health than on #BellLetsTalk day!? Though I'm probably not qualified to talk about serious mental health concerns - I…
