CHARITABLE GIVING

We believe that as an organization, it is important to give back to both our local community and abroad.  Our founding partners have sat on the board for various charitable organizations including Run For Water, A Better Life Foundation, and Imagine1Day.  We have worked with and spoken on behalf of numerous charitable organizations including the Canadian Cancer Society and Natures Conservancy of Canada. Our work in Charitable Giving and Community Engagement reflects our core values as a business.

Run for Water is an Abbotsford based charitable organization dedicated to building clean water projects in rural communities of Ethiopia.

We invest in developing leaders today, to ensure our impact is seen well into the future. Rather than waiting for people to prove themselves, we focus on providing them with the tools to be great now. We’re committed to the possibility that in this lifetime, Ethiopia will emerge as a global leader with education as the primary driver. We set big goals, apply long-term thinking and share our results with full transparency. We love when people take action to make their best possible future come alive and we look forward to 2030, when the collective creativity of our community has forever changed the face of charity and has put us out of a job. What can your imagination do for the world?

We are excited to share the video above. Our team took over the famous “Save on Meats” restaurant located in the Lower Eastside of Downtown Vancouver in order to cook and serve food to many local residents living on the streets who never experience a 3 course meal.

Our donation provided a hearty 3 course meal for over 160 people that evening, and will continue to provide an additional 1,000 meals throughout the year!

The event, Plenty of Plates, organized through A Better Life Foundation, was an amazing experience, bringing together our team and some friends, and connecting us with our community in the downtown eastside. We chatted, cooked, cleaned, and served food and non-alcoholic beverages to a lot of hungry people.

While we were able to provide hot meals and a warm space that evening and into the holidays, this is an-ongoing issue for our community in the downtown Eastside. Together we can make a difference. We encourage you all to support this organization. Engage your team, friends, families, and clients - get involved!

Thank you Mark Brand for creating this opportunity, to Evan Sidwell for hosting the evening, to the staff at Save On Meats for their guidance in the kitchen, to Olivia Leigh Nowak for capturing the even on camera, and of course to our support team and friends and their families who joined us for this incredible experience.

GLOBAL COMMUNITY

We are actively involved in our local community and abroad. From building new schools and clean water projects in Africa, to providing hot meals to our local East Side Vancouver residents - we believe that helping others ignites our spirits and drives us to become better versions of ourselves.  Through compassion, commitment and a strategic plan, we challenge ourselves on how we can improve both our community and our environment.
