The Beast project is grounded in collaboration and partnership. In addition to the incredible line up of celebrities and actors involved in the film, our collaborations and partnerships include: mental health organizations, service clubs, municipal government departments, community development organizations, media, schools, social work/human services professionals, disaster recovery organizations, businesses and sponsors.
By building connections with and partnering alongside a diverse group of stakeholders, we are reaching more families and communities impacted by wildfire disasters fostering sustainability in the project, and inspiring community change. We are ensuring sustainablity, by partnering with organizations (such as service clubs, schools, youth organizations, workplaces) that will continue to show the film and utilize the resource materials, in the years to come.
Building a legacy is important to us. We want communities who have experienced and overcome a disaster to lend their support to those experiencing one currently. The Beast will provide the tools to do that. We have created a private Facebook Group to provide a forum for people who have been impacted by disaster to connect, share and support one another. Our online community connects people to the resources they need and community organizations that can help.
We believe we will make many communities better by working together to overcome grief and loss. The Beast film and supportive program materials will be shared with schools, homeschooling associations and youth serving organizations across the country.. Subject to funding, the program will be accessible to communities across Canada, the U.S.,and beyond; to people or communities of any faith, backgrounds, or age group.
