The Unignorable Tower

Written by on November 6, 2019

By now you should probably have seen a tower 2.5 times higher than the CN Tower. It’s not real, but the problem it represents is very accurate.

 

This tower represents the 116,317 GTA individuals and families struggling to put a roof over their heads. Poverty can be easy to ignore, in the GTA 1 in 7 residents is currently struggling to pay their bills. The goal is to bring attention to one of the biggest problems in the city.

This campaign was presented by United Way (unitedwaygt.ca) to create awareness and put poverty in perspective. You can download their app if you want to see the tower.
