Call for Volunteers for a Multi-Media Awareness Raising Event: including a Film Festival

Call for Volunteers for a Multi-Media Awareness Raising Event for
Environmental Illness (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome and Fibromyalgia)  which will include: Art Exhibit, Music (CD)
About the Illnesses, a Two Day Advocates' Workshop and an MCS Film Festival
showing 4 Hollywood films about MCS- Gulf War Syndrome and Environmental
poisoning of a small company town.

The Environmental Illness Society of Canada is planning four days of
consciousness raising events as a kind of 'coming out' venue that will raise
awareness about the effects of environmental exposures on human health, that
will examine the issues faced by the 15% of Canadians with EI and, to raise
funds for Homelessness caused by Environmental Illness (as part of the
EISC's 'EI' Homelessness Project).

This high-profile, affirmative series of events is being organized by the
EISC's Ottawa and Toronto branches. The multi-media events will be held in
Toronto. The No Safe Haven Art Exhibit will be shown in Ottawa as well.

Volunteers are needed in all areas of development and promotion. Work can be
carried out from the Ottawa office, or remotely, via the internet.

The EISC is a national charity representing stakeholders with
MCS-CFS-FM-GWS-Asthma and Allergy.
