SANSU – Surrey Area Network of Substance Users was proud to attend the 8th Annual H’Arts for the Homeless 2016 Annual Benefit Event for Lookout Society.

H’Arts for the Homeless is an experience of fine art, circus, music, storytelling and dance. The event highlights how hope is rekindled when a safe and stable home is provided. At the same time, the night features food that indulges the palate and entertainment for the mind and soul.

H’Arts is truly a unique evening with an engaging and talented cast and crew. This is the Lookout Society’s signature fundraiser that celebrates 45 years of helping our most vulnerable residents.

SANSU Surrey Area Network of Substance Users’ I Fly So High PARODY of Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake

SANSU – Surrey Area Network of Substance Users’  “I Fly So High” Parody Video of Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake

We all may have a friend or family member who is in danger of losing their lives even to one episode of experimental drug use.

Dealers are putting Fentanyl and other powerful opiates into what some may call soft drugs (marijuana) to make it more potent thus making the user addicted.

SANSU’s Justin Timberlake parody has a serious message for the Provincial Emergency on substance users dying from Fentanyl overdose.

Please Watch and Share!

They are not statistics; this video shows they are real people!


Message in Video:

Surrey Area Network of Substance Users

“This is Not a Joke! We Are Dying.

Fentanyl, W-18
Naloxone Kits are becoming more and more Ineffective!

So we continue to dance and die!

Please support SANSU’s work”

@April, @AprilFilms @AHAMEDIA are all back up! Thank you so much to our wonderful mentor @raincoaster and @TwitterCanada for all their great help! ♥ ♥



@April and @AprilFilms are now back online. Just waiting for everything to “recalibrate” once it was compromised.

Thank you @Twitter  Just waiting for @AHAMEDIA to be reactivated!



@AprilFilms, @AHAMEDIA, @April are now inactive – Hopefully @Twitter is working on fixing the problem that is affecting millions of other accounts that were hacked!


Imagine our surprise when logging into our @April to post about something very special.. a 1 year anniversary special of something very exciting when we found out that we COULD NOT log into it!! 😦

Cannot log in to @April

So we tried to input our email as a means of verification and still we were not able to access it!

omg april been hacked hard

We noticed with great shock that our @April account that we had registered since 2008, 8 years ago was suddenly taken over by someone, something!!!!

April not hers

Immediately we informed @Twitter  what happened!!

Our precious @April account was given away! HELP!!!

april to do


Apparently we were sent a reactivation email to resurrect our @April @Twitter account on Aug 6 2016 but we never authorized it at all!  Our @April account was never dormant and was previously accessed only two weeks ago approximately. (We have been busy filming out in the streets)

april hacked

Puzzled by this, we turned to our great mentor in social media @raincoaster for advice and we are very much hoping that we will get our @April @twitter handle back. We registered our @April @Twitter handle back in 2008 and we used our @April @twitter handle to showcase our hard work in community engagement of Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Help! @Twitter gave our @April account away!

“Dear @Twitter, Please give us back our @April @Twitter account back! Thank you!”

Please share and Retweet!

Thank you!!!!
