We are One Million Bones Toronto, a group of designers and volunteers from Architecture for Humanity Toronto. We are leading our city's contribution to the Students Rebuild One Million Bones Challenge – a worldwide project to cover the National Mall in Washington, D.C. with 1,000,000 handmade bones in summer 2013. Each bone made will generate $1 USD from the Bezos Family Foundation, through Students Rebuild, up to $500,000. These funds will support CARE’s rebuilding efforts in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia.

We believe the diverse perspectives of Toronto’s creative youth provide a meaningful lens to understand current worldwide human rights issues, from gender inequality to cultural discrimination. Our citywide goal: make a minimum of 5000 bones in time for a weekend event and installation at the Harboufront Community Centre, titled “The Centre for Peaceful Protest (event date TBA). One Million Bones Toronto works with organizations like YAM and Thinking Forward to provide arts education workshops that empower the community.
