Giving Page

As part of living in Beautiful Vancouver, I believe in giving back to the community.

For every transaction, I will be making a $150.00 donation to a charity organization close to my heart.  I have chosen four organizations that represent people who do not have a strong voice for themselves and need more resources to advocate for them.

You decide which one you wish me to donate to on your behalf.

Covenant House Vancouver

On any given night, there are between 500 and 1,000 homeless and at-risk youth on Vancouver's streets. The majority of them have fled an abusive home, were abandoned by their parents, or were aged out of the foster care system at 19 with no family, no money and nowhere to go. Covenant House's Crisis Program takes in homeless, runaway and at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24. When they arrive, young people are often distraught. They are scared, sick, hungry and exhausted. Our first priority is to meet their basic needs:

  -  Medical attention
  -  Nutritious food
  -  A safe place to sleep


They also get compassion and support from caring adults, and a chance to start fresh. Covenant's House's goal is to guide young people away from their immediate crisis and toward independent living or, where possible, family repatriation.

The Anxiety Disorders Association of British Columbia (AnxietyBC™) is a non profit organization established in early spring of 1999 by a group of concerned consumers, family members, and professionals, who work to increase awareness about anxiety disorders; promote education of the general public, affected persons, and health care providers; and increase access to evidence-based resources and treatments. In keeping with our mission, AnxietyBC™ led a ground-breaking effort towards describing a comprehensive strategy in the management of anxiety disorders - the Provincial Anxiety Disorders Strategy in the fall 2001. We are a member of HeretoHelp, a project of the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information and one of seven leading mental health and addictions non-profit agencies in British Columbia.

ABC Life Literacy Canada
Individuals with strong literacy skills lead fully engaged lives. Improved literacy skills help with work achievement, positive parenting, personal growth, and better health and self-esteem. Unfortunately, millions of Canadians age 16 to 65 are challenged with low literacy which hinders their ability to cope with the demands of everyday life and work.
