Thank you to our sponsors.


We would like to give a special thank you to those who have made a considerable donation towards this event and our work in Canada and Haiti.

Who are we?

I would like to thank everyone who participated in last year’s With Love Gala. Through your generosity, $1,250,000 was raised and used to support our Canadian Youth Fund and our Freedom Village in Haiti! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This year, we would love to be able to raise the final amount needed to complete the construction of the Freedom Village and to continue supporting our teams who work with students in high schools and Indigenous communities across Canada. 100% of the proceeds of our gala will be shared equally between Live Different’s Canadian Youth Fund and the Freedom Village project in Haiti.

Live Different’s Canadian Youth Fund exists to inspire hope and purpose in youth across Canada. Live Different works in more schools and indigenous communities in Manitoba (per capita) than in any other province in Canada! When investing in this year’s With Love Gala, you will be investing in students right here at home in Manitoba.

Live Different’s Freedom Village in Haiti is a transitional home for young girls who have been trafficked. Once completed, this home will provide a safe place for girls to heal, learn, and prepare for a successful future.

We would love to have you join us at our With Love Gala at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights on September 26, 2019. During our evening together, you will hear amazing stories of lives that have been impacted and changed forever. This will be a time for celebration, a time to catch up with old friends, and a time to meet some new friends.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Charles Roberts,
Executive Director, Live Different
