Dear Gossips,

Cory Monteith recorded a video message for the 2010 SMUT Soiree in Toronto. Cory had just been named the ambassador for Virgin Unite, with specific emphasis on youth homelessness. That year, in lieu of gift bags, we decided to make a donation to Covenant House Vancouver instead. The Society and donated $6,500 from the event to Covenant House which was then topped up to $10,000 by one of the event's sponsors. We appealed to event guests to donate even more, and Cory agreed to match every donation up to $5000 -- all in support of young people at-risk living on the streets. Thanks to Cory, we reached our goal. The video is below.

Cory’s a devoted advocate for Project Limelight, a free performing arts program for young people from lower income neighbourhoods in Vancouver. Please click here to support Project Limelight. Please click here to support Covenant House Vancouver, which he mentions in the video. And click here to find a Covenant House in your area in North America. In the UK, please click here for more information on Centrepoint, providing a safe place to live for kids who have no place else to go.

Yours in gossip,
