For the third year in a row Canadian artists are taking to the streets to raise money for War Child as part of the annual Busking for Change event on September 21 in Toronto. Musicians, such as Jesse Labelle, Raine Maida, The Midway State, Alyssa Reid, KO, The Artist Life, The Junction and many more will be busking on street corners all over Toronto in efforts to raise money for War Child. Last year’s Busking for Change was a huge success with artists raising over $100,000 to help children in some of the most devastated areas affected by wars worldwide.
