A Storytelling Cabaret At The Imperial Theatre June 23rd

20 Jun

StorytellingCabaretThere is a very interesting event happening this week at The Imperial Theatre. It is a Storytelling Cabaret. If you are in your 20s, this one’s for you.  You are being asked if  “You ever got lost in Europe? Failed college Theatre History? Finally learnt Hotel California on the guitar? (No, but I did actually rewrite the words to the song as a kid. No I don’t know why). Or just have one of “those summers”?”   You are invited for an evening of storytelling and music with young people from and currently in foster care to celebrate all that is right and wrong with being in your twenties.   This event is part of the Write the Future campaign, which is a Fostering Change initiative that includes community leaders, youth and members of the public to come together in support of youth aging out of foster care.   As part of the Write the Future campaign, the Fostering Change initiative invites community leaders, youth, and members of the public to come together in support of youth aging out of foster care.   The long list of talent lined up for this week’s event includes:

Foto Friday – STILL A Record Number Of Canines In Foster At Vancouver SPCA – Can We Change That?

20 May

VanSPCAFostersSo as many know that follow us regularly, we are big supporters of the BC SPCA and the work they do.  We regularly feature pets waiting for adoption and often they are ones that are a bit harder to place.  In last week’s Foto Friday we featured a collage of pets that have been patiently waiting in foster for that forever home.  We mentioned that the Vancouver BC SPCA currently has a record number of canines in foster care.  As of last week’s writing, all the dogs are STILL WAITING, so we are giving them another chance, as they so deserve, for that forever home on today’s Foto Friday.  If you would like more information about any one of these dogs, you can find more information on their website at Vancouver BC SPCA, 1205 East 7th Avenue. You can also reach them by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. They will be more than happy to arrange a visit for you.  As always, we welcome any shares, but today we ask that you do. Please share so these canines can finally find their forever home.

13 May

VanSPCAFostersAs those that follow us regularly know, we are big supporters of the BC SPCA and the work they do. We regularly feature pets waiting for adoption and often they are ones that are a bit harder to place.  In today’s Foto Friday we are featuring a collage of pets that have been patiently waiting for some time in foster for their forever home.  We have learnt that the Vancouver BC SPCA currently has a record number of canines in foster care.  Since they are not in the shelter, they are not as visible to those looking for a pet, but of course just as deserving of that forever home.  As of today’s writing, each of one of the dogs pictured is still waiting.   So today we’d like to give them some virtual love to help them find what they so need and deserve. If you would like more information about any one of these dogs, you can find more information on their website at Vancouver BC SPCA, 1205 East 7th Avenue. You can also reach them by telephone at 604-879-7721 or by email at vancouver@spca.bc.ca. They will be more than happy to arrange a visit for you.  As always, we welcome any shares.
