I am overjoyed to announce that my first fundraiser was a great success! Thanks to the generosity of my clients, colleagues, newsletter readers, friends and family, we raised $1177 to benefit three of my favourite charities: Evergreen Foundation, The Land Conservancy and Big Sisters. I am thrilled with the results and enormously grateful to all who contributed… thank you so much for your support!

This experience has been tremendously rewarding, and it has inspired me to conduct another fundraiser in the fall. I feel so blessed for the many wonderful things that have happened in my life and business, and it feels fantastic to “pay it forward” and help others.

If you feel inspired to sponsor your own fundraising event, you might consider working with CanadaHelps.org. The organization is an online “donation portal” that allows your donors to contribute directly to any one of Canada’s 80,000 charities. The process is easy, safe, and fast – it doesn’t get any easier!
