#sleepforpeace : a successful campaign

On September 21st, International Peace Day, Hostelling International Canada collected a $1 for each overnight spent in its participating hostels. The money collected was donated  to the YTF to support the development of its Sleep for Peace grant. The campaign raised $1861, which will be redistributed in 2018. Thanks to HI Canada and its travellers for their generosity!
