What Is LEAVE A LEGACY™?
Almost everyone has a favourite charity. The reasons why a charity is close to your heart are as varied as the charities themselves. LEAVE A LEGACY™ is a public awareness campaign that promotes the benefits of leaving a bequest in your Will to help your favourite charitable organization.
Seaquam Secondary School students held a 24-hour fasting fundraiser to benefit Covenant House Vancouver. The students raised almost $6000.00 and we are so proud of their hard work. They also experienced what was like to go with our food and be hungry just like many of our youth have experienced.
A big thank you to Seaquam Secondary School!
"The idea for an International Women's Day arose around the turn of the 20th century out of a long-standing movement for women to participate equally in society.
The first International Women's Day was observed on March 19, 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. That day, more than one million women and men showed their support by participating in public events. Between 1913 and 1917, women in Russia and elsewhere in Europe began to celebrate the day as well.

Pink Shirt Day was created when two Nova Scotia high school students supported a fellow student that was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt by also wearing pink (read the full story here). From that moment of solidarity Pink Shirt Day was born and it allows all people to stand up to bullies everywhere by wearing pink.
"The eleventh annual Homelessness Marathon will once again serve up 14 hours of people-powered radio, broadcasting this year from multiple cities across Canada. With the goal of being a consciousness-raising event, the Marathon will provide an opportunity for homeless people and their allies to take to the airwaves, and allow a nationwide discussion on homelessness issues and possible solutions." - The Homelessness Marathon
