With everyone’s help, the event raised 150k for the Children’s Wish Foundation, which grants approximately 50 wishes for children who are critically ill.

Thank you, everyone, who contributed to the cause!

Spring Rolls Handout

Giving on a cold January day in Vancouver in one of the most undesired places to live. East Hastings is well known for it’s demographic of homelessness and drug addictions.

Unfortunately, the city of Vancouver has allocated people who are the most in need into one territory.

With the power of giving we supplied over 1000 spring rolls to people who need it the most. The gratitude was enormous, above are some of the pictures that capture the giving.

A team of givers is powerful and can accomplish any task desired.

This isn’t for us, it’s for them!

Thank you for the support: Rock Habib, Shannon, Kristen Roberts, Matthew Klapwijk, Virginia Klapwijk

A Givers Christmas

A Givers Christmas Movie

Giving at the Gordon Project Raincity Housing and Shelter

Together with the Givers Group and Unique Get Together Society we accomplished a feat that we had little preparation for. In over a week together we sponsored 35 homeless people at the Raincity Shelter and Housing in Coquitlam BC.

We created a package of winter goods that would help each homeless person in this cold winter. The package contained gloves, socks, sleeping bag, scarf and a hood.

We had such extraordinary help over the holiday season that we exceeded our goal by also sponsoring a single dad, Robert James Hogge, who just got out of surgery as well as his son, Derek Hogge. Together Robert and Derek came out and paid it forward to giving to the homeless.

On top of that, we had enough gifts to give to a family who lost their house to a fire in Chilliwack, and we teamed up with Chantelle Mini Levesque for the Fill The Limo event.

Tons of good news coming from the Givers group this Christmas.

There will be a video coming out for everything that transpired, the purpose is to inspire many others to give. We will release the video after it’s final edits, so stay tuned.

Special thanks to the Givers who donated gifts:

Project Book Drive

What a great evening, full of entertainment and giving. We raised 500+ books for the Kindlers Society. These books specifically will be sent to Nepal and Mexico. Teachers will be reading these books and teaching students how to read who are under privileged and cannot afford to buy English literature.

From books come inspiration, information and knowledge. We read books and then we tend to not read them again because we yearn for new experiences.

Thanks to the Kindlers society all those books that we are no longer reading and getting our inspiration from can be given to someone who doesn’t have the same luxuries as we do. We can spark a growth in a new generation. What may appear to us as clutter can become a treasure others.

We are grateful to give to people who are in need. We could not have done this alone, thanks to the support of our network.

Fill The Deck

From left to right, Matthew, Lev, Rob, Prevail.

This event was inspired by Sherry Cote from Vista Villa. She gave the Givers Group the idea of collecting food items for the food bank by doing a food drive. Kelowna hosted the Fill the Trunk event and we put a spin on it in the city of Vancouver. This is what transpired from it.
