Aboutface began as a “feel good” Christmas fundraising project by faculty and students in the Cambrian College Graphic Design Program—the kind of activity that those of us who consider ourselves fortunate feel compelled to do during the bountiful holiday season. That quick-fix altruism quickly changed over the course of three cold November nights spent with the first people we met. We came face to face with our own misconceptions and ignorance about the issues faced by the men, women and children who rely on local shelters and soup kitchens. Subsequently, Aboutface became a six-year series of fundraising exhibitions, culminating in this printed record in book form. All proceeds sales from Aboutface have been directed to the Samaritan Centre to continue their work in supporting the poor and homeless in our community.

Testimonials

A hidden gem, I have lived in Sudbury for a long time and I never knew the store was there until recently. There is decor for everyone and a great place to buy gifts for friends and family. The employees are very friendly and helpful (...)

I visited this store for the first time today and was amazed by the selection of bird, bat and butterfly houses and feeders. I only went in to get some poles for feeders I already have but I will be back. They also have a wide selection of home and garden gifts.
