I don't know what you call that, but... 
Uh, Japanese... is that the Japanese? 
It does look like it. 
It's beautiful. 
This is a nice house. 
90,000 Canadians will use a food bank for the first time this month. 
This month? 
This month.

Open House Today 
Poverty isn't always easy to see 
So we held an open house to reveal it. 
Final Notice - Telecom 
The Salvation Army - Giving Hope Today 
Spend more than half you paycheque on rent. 1 in 5 households pay more than they can afford to keep a roof over their heads. 
1 in 7 children go to school hungry. 
1 in 5 Canadians skip meals to make ends meet. 
90,000 Canadians will use a food bank for the first time this month. 
1 in 8 households struggle to put food on the table. 
Children growing up in poverty have greater illiteracy rates. 
The kids aren't alright. 
Many can't afford to clothe their families. Especially with brand new items like jackets, shoes or winter gear. 
Poverty isn't always easy to see. 1 in 10 Canadians live in poverty even with a roof over their head. 
Help us feed, clothe and empower those in need.
