KNT Fall Fundraiser for the Hope Mission

The last time Kita no Taiko held a fundraiser for the Red Cross, we were really touched by the enthusiastic and warm community response and support. This year, we are holding another fundraiser, this time for the Hope Mission in Edmonton. The Hope Mission serves Edmonton’s growing population of homeless and housing insecure people. Their Ministry Van program assists by bringing food, warm clothing, medical attention and transportation to charitable centres. They serve over 1,500 people each year, with this number always increasing.

We all know our Winters can be long, cold, and miserable. Kita no Taiko empathizes with those without shelter for whom this is season is dangerous and life-threatening as well. Attendees at our fundraiser can donate coats and Winter wear, and bid in our Silent Auction. There will be gourmet hot dogs and merchandise from Japan. We will also have performances from Kita no Taiko and special guests in dancing, music and more, featuring collaborative performances not seen anywhere else!

Please share this event so that we may raise donations for the Hope Mission so they may continue to serve our fellow Edmontonians. You can also donate directly to the cause through PayPal here. Let us come together to bring the warmth of community and compassion for the start of the cold Winter.

Jr. Apprentice plays taiko on CBC

Our Jr. Apprentice Emilie is only 16, but she has all ready been playing taiko for 4 years. She graduated from our KNT Kids class and joined the adult class as an apprentice. In this clip she plays her own taiko that she uses to practice with at home. She discusses her mixed French and Japanese Canadian culture.
Way to go, Emilie!
