United Way creates platform for the GTA to embrace its local love   

New digital magazine LocalLove.ca inspires everyone to give back and connect to the communities we love to call home 


Toronto, ON —  United Way Greater Toronto, working with communities in Peel, Toronto and York Region, is proud to announce the official launch of their new digital magazine LocalLove.ca. With a focus on unleashing the power of local love and igniting lasting change, the site is a place where readers can find easy ways to live well and do good. Featuring stories on local changemakers, simple ways to give back, challenging ideas, debates and much more, the site will become the ultimate destination for getting connected to the places where they live—from Brampton to Bloor Village, Kensington to King City.

“We know people want to give back to the places they call home but it’s often hard to know where to start. We hear it all the time,” said Adrienne Clarke, Editor-In-Chief of LocalLove.ca. There really isn’t one place where people can go to find smart and simple ways to give back and that’s why we created LocalLove.ca. We are tapping into United Way’s deep knowledge and connections to the community and creating this new one-stop, online resource.”

LocalLove.ca helps even the busiest people make a difference—without it feeling like another “to-do” on the list. Stories are updated daily to help readers live with impact, get inspired and do their part. For a weekend pick-me-up, readers can subscribe to the weekly Good News Letter, delivered directly to their inbox every Saturday morning with quick, easy-to-read tidbits to entertain and inspire, all from right here in the community.

LocalLove.ca covers a range of topics; profiling people, places and causes throughout the region. Notable Toronto Food Writer, Suresh Doss, shares five steps to Make Your Next Restaurant Outing a Sustainable One,  author, Micah Toub lists Summer Camps for Kids Who Want to Make a Difference and Tabatha Southey shares how she Found Community in the City. Readers can also get tips on Being a Respectful Volunteer and How to Be a Changemaker and get inspired by profiles of people making a difference in Toronto and the GTA.
