Have questions? Visit our FAQ section! or email charliekop@hotmail.com

Virtual CNOY Day

This is your own self-organized walk! Here are some key things you'll need to do on February 20 (or whatever day in February you decide to walk):


  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe 2-5 km route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Share online as you go! #cnoy21
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!

About Why Not Youth Centre

What if we could prevent homelessness before people are actually on the streets? Good news! That's our goal.


At Why Not Youth Centres, we work with high-risk youth and work to stabilize their lives and build their skills so they never have to live in a tent by the creek.


When you fundraise and walk with us for Coldest Night of the Year Brantford, you're helping us to pay the bills that accumulate in this important work.


Why Not is a small, grassrootsy not-for-profit that sees 750-1000 visits EVERY MONTH from local teens in need. With a fundraising and donations-based funding model, we know that working closely with the local community has SO many benefits.


A fundraiser like this makes a huge difference toward our ability to do this important work.


This year's goal is $35,000, and after raising over $35,000 last year, we know we can do it!
