You know it’s a bad one, when it has its own hashtag. The Calgary / High River flooding has been devastating not only to home owners, but to non-profit organizations. The stories of citizens helping others to recover from the devastation have been heartwarming. Sometimes all it takes is a reason to push one’s shyness aside and dig in. I saw this tweet about a school searching for supplies for their classroom, and the photos are so sad. I was lucky enough to win an Amazon gift certificate as part of #theclientlist party, so I was go glad to be able to send it to Holy Spirit Academy. Check out the donation that was left on someone’s front porch! If you have any unused gift cards that you think would be of help, visit the blog post for more info.
My family and friends raised over $2,000 last weekend for the Carkinator. It was great to see a rural community come together to raise over $47,000 for the hospital and my son got the autographs of NHL stars Chris Neil and Matt Carkner, so that was a highlight!
Another thanks to my family and friends have saving all of their beauty product containers and Tassimo discs. I dropped off three huge boxes to UPS today to ship to Terracycle to be recycled.
The adventure continues!
