National Volunteer Week


This is National Volunteer Week in Canada. A week to highlight, profile, and celebrate volunteers.
And hopefully a gentle nudge (for those of use who aren't already) to start volunteering.


I'd like to bring your attention to a wonderful organization: Common Ground Co-operative (CGC) is an award winning, non-profit co-operative service organization promoting the establishment of self-employment initiatives for adults with developmental disabilities. My sister is one of those adults who has gained many wonderful opportunities through the good work of CGC. Head over to their website and check out all the great work they do. And you can read their latest newsletter here.

Common Ground depends on the dedication of many volunteers, so if you're interested in volunteering with Common Ground Co-operative, I'm sure they'd love to have your support.

Thanks for stopping by guys.

  4. Wow your mother is a great photographer! She really has an eye for the 'golden ratio' (Is that the proper english word for it?). I don't know whether she did that mathematically or just has a feeling for it, but the pictures turned out great!
