The Mission: Weekly asymptomatic testing for our youth and the essential heroes on the
frontlines that support them. One test per week per household could greatly affect the course of
the pandemic, never mind if the whole household is tested. By keeping costs low and with the
ease of being able to administer the test from someone’s home the hope is that testing can be
done on a weekly basis to effectively eradicate the virus.
The Plan: Affordable solutions for weekly asymptomatic covid testing for our youth starting at
$25 a test. A donation of one test is being made for every ten sold, and the 3M N95 9210+ are
donated at a rate of one respirator for every one sold. By making these tools affordable with
easy access through the distribution lines in place we are delivering these tests same to next
day and local pickup locations, the main one is 969 Queen St East, Toronto.
The Thanks: Thank you BGC Toronto and Eastview Kiwanis, new name but same legacy as the
Boys and Girls Club, for being part of the initiative and for the 100+ years of creating
opportunities for youth in Regent Park, Cabbagetown, Trinity Bellwoods, across Canada, and
even the Carribean. For programs, festivals, and how to help visit BGCtk.org.
If you can help by offering us a pop-up location to distribute from, suggestions of any
community driven programs that need support with battling outbreaks, any volunteers to support
the initiative, anyone with a social media presence that can share our initiative to educate and
inform the community, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We have currently donated more tests than we have sold, which is why we stand behind our
motto of people before profit and hope you will too.”
