Inspired to help, Thorn immediately knew what must be done.
Working with Tara Yolan Productions and Cynthia Block Communications, Thorn reached out to refugee organizations, schools, First Nations and many others to produce a music video that tells this uniquely Canadian story.
“This project is for the refugees, but it’s also for all Canadians who are opening up their hearts, doors and wallets to help these newcomers feel welcome,” said Thorn. “I want it to reflect our generosity of spirit, hope for the future and strength through diversity.”
Participation by First Nations in the music video is an important element, as it reflects Canada’s history. “As the original welcomers of us all, they remind us to pay it forward,” said Thorn.
“You Didn’t Even Know Me”, the music video, will be formally launched on Friday, February 12th at 10:30 am at the Sheraton Cavalier’s Top of the Inn in Saskatoon. There will also be an announcement of a major gift.
