Giving for Thanksgiving in Vancouver 2008

October 10th, 2008 @ 11:09am by Rebecca Bollwitt

Thanksgiving is usually a time of reflection on my blog; memories of heading to my Oma and Opa’s house for a big turkey dinner, raking the leaves in the front yard and then riding the BMX straight through the pile. Eating so much at supper time as Oma tells you to keep going, “you’re too […]

October's Third Tuesday Food Drive

October 6th, 2008 @ 5:22pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

During National Digital Media Day I started collecting food donations for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. I still have the items sitting at home (about two bags worth) and I thought to myself that it would be really great to have more than this when I drop off the donations. I knew I had to […]

It was a year ago that I first wrote about the Surrey Memorial Hospital‘s Tulips for Tomorrow campaign. Now, 12 months, 100,000 bulbs and $420,000 in donations later, they are initiating the campaign for another season.

Keall Foundation Project Tunisia Live Blog

I have found my way to the auto/ONE Trunk Gallery located on 3rd Ave between Pine and Burrard and now have internet access thanks to Cecilia and her dedicated IT guy who took my call.

There’s just one day to go in the Benji, Casey, Pete and Bella campaign for Paws for a Cause. For months now Keira has been fundraising for this very worthy organization and Matt (who helped Duane and I with the Blogathon) also backed the fundraising effort with updates on his website.

Social Media for Change: Team Diabetes, Run in Fun Places and Raise Funds for a Good Cause

September 3rd, 2008 @ 8:00am by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Gold Coast, Easter Island, Prague, Dublin and Honolulu; these are all locations of the Team Diabetes marathons, which aim to raise money for the Canadian Diabetes Association. I went to high school with Candice Chamberland and although it had been ten years since we last spoke she came back on my radar through Facebook […]

September 25th is National Digital Media Day in Canada and all those involved with digital photography, podcasting, online video, blogging and the likes are encouraged to post content throughout this 24 hour period of celebration and awareness for the medium.

Paws for a Cause The Casey and Benji Story

August 14th, 2008 @ 1:56pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

It was almost two years ago that I first met Casey and Benji. We spent an entire evening together when Matt was doing his living room show, I threw a chew toy, Casey would retrieve it, I would get slobber on my hand (while live blogging) and the rest is history.
