Happy New Year from the Ryerson Review of Journalism. We’ve started production for our Summer 2012 issue, and have big plans for the year ahead. Here are some upcoming events to add spice to your lukewarm winter.

RRJ February Fundraiser
Our kick off fundraiser is on February 2 at the Black Bull (298 Queen Street West). For just $10, you have a chance at giveaways, prizes, and a friendly bartender. The party starts at 8 p.m., but we’ll be pre-selling tickets from Monday to Friday, January 16 – February 1, in the Rogers Communications Centre on Ryerson campus. Buy a ticket from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.and get a free cup of fair-trade coffee.

Clothing and Treasure Sale

Aside from selling tickets, we’ll also be opening our second-hand table of beautiful things. Bring some pocket change to purchase a treasure that will last longer than any bake-sale item ever does. All proceeds will go to the RRJ. The items are still making their way to our desks, but so far we have some lovely vintage clothes and books. We’re still seeking donations for our sale, so why not donate a book you’d like to share or a dress you never wear? Shoes, books, jewellery, and men’s and women’s clothing are all warmly welcomed. Start off the New Year by cleaning out your closet and sharing what you don’t use; you’ll free up space, and you’ll help fund a great publication.
