September 25th is National Digital Media Day in Canada and all those involved with digital photography, podcasting, online video, blogging and the likes are encouraged to post content throughout this 24 hour period of celebration and awareness for the medium.

As one of the national blog leads, I’ve been plotting a cross-region blogging campaign, where I would start out in Surrey perhaps for breakfast (with wifi) and anyone could join up with me while I write a blog post. From there I would move on to another city, another cafe, and another blog post. Raul will also be hosting the Vancouver Blogger Meetup that evening, so you can head over there to do your part for NDMD 2008.

The end of my evening however will involve the Keall Foundation that is raising money for Project Tunisia as they have asked me to come and live blog their event.

When: Thursday, September 25, 2008 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Where: auto/ONE – TRUNK gallery (1755 West Third Avenue (at Burrard))
What: Social event and silent auction

100% of the silent auction proceeds will benefit these orphaned babies to make a considerable difference in these lives that never chose to be orphaned and unwanted. Together we will supply them with the basic comfort of full stomachs; clothed bottoms and printed caregiver reference guides for all workers at centres and Tunisian Orphanages. – Keall Foundation

If you have any items you would like to donate for the silent auction, please contact the Keall Foundation.

  1. How about Salt Tasting Room for lunch? They’ve got wifi, good food and an awesome new cellar. I’ll bring some wine. And their geek factor extends beyond cured meats, with Kurtis Kolt uploading videos and the occasional podcast.

    Great idea! I’m hoping to also a) have a car that day b) find some places maybe in New West… Burnaby… Port Moody… North Van or something as well – I’m open to suggestions there too ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sounds like a great cause…..I use to live on the mainland and if I were there I would suggest a great place in Burnaby….like Anton’s on Hastings….best of luck with your fundraiser!
