The Giving Tree in support of Covenant House Vancouver

Perform Art Studios has created the “Giving Tree” to continue its support of Covenant House Vancouver. Their goal is to raise $500.00 to help the homeless youth of Vancouver for the holidays. To make this this happen they are selling tag decorations which you can write your name on and then hang on the tree. Minimum donations are $2.00 and tags can be purchased at Perform Art Studios and Lonsdale Quay.

How it works:

1. Donate a minimum of $2.00
2. Choose a tag and write your name
3. Find a branch on the tree and hang your tag
4. Feel good knowing you have helped homeless youth this holiday season

A celebratory jig is done when Kailey sticks to her plan

During evening staff shift change at our Crisis Program it was passed on that one of our youth was at her boyfriend’s work party. Another youth worker and I looked at one other skeptically. Kailey has been really doing well with a lot of aspects of her plan and has had a long successful stay. She has struggled with drinking in the past and with her relationship with her boyfriend. It was his work party. Todd jokingly commented “well if she returns tonight by curfew that would be awesome. In fact if she returns I will do a little jig!”

Curfew is 11:00pm on Saturdays and at 10:30pm Kailey was back! She did not drink, didn’t miss curfew and left early because other people at the party were very drunk and she found it annoying to be around. Both of us were in the office when she returned so as a man of his word he told her what he had said and gave her a celebratory jig. Kailey thought this was very funny and was very proud to have stuck with her plan. Way to go Kailey!
