This is not a conventional FYH post, but I can’t think of a better place to find good people willing to help other good people do good things.
My amazing, talented, and big-hearted friend Daniel is participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer benefitting the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto. He will be cycling +200km, which is a hell of a lot more than my little over-caffeinated hipster mind can even fathom.
If you are feeling like doing a little good in the world, I encourage you to click the link below and pledge a donation to his ride.
All the money donated will go towards Princess Margaret’s endeavour to develop their Personalize Cancer Medicine: “a multi-faceted, integrated approach to cancer care that focuses on the unique nature of each patient: ‘Finding the right treatment for the right patient, at the right time.’”
Feel free to click below for a more detailed description of the work being done at Princess Margaret and the amazing work your donations will be funding.
Besides that, Happy Monday everyone. Keep fighting the good fight!
Do not go gentle into that good night

Exploring the city of Berlin, Germany, three students (one of them being my freshman-year roommate, now housemate, Lina N.) set out to understand dead but living spaces, art, and the self. Living a life apart from that of their parents, they have come to call themselves the Third Culture Kids. This term explains “the consequences of growing up with an international mentality.” These students, having spent a large portion of their lives abroad in foreign countries, have come to embrace their “third-cultureness” and this Summer have set out on a project, documenting old, abandoned spaces and their graffiti and adding some of their own influence to the withdrawn walls, as well. Including history, art, social theory, adventure, and personal insight, this blog is an important addition to archives of antiquated architecture and street art in Berlin that would otherwise exist in silence and abandonment.
