Gratitude Week Vancouver 2009

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Gratitude Week is happening the week of Thanksgiving in Vancouver and if you’ve been looking for a way to give back to your community, this campaign is for you.

At this point in my life I have so much for which I am thankful. I think the most important element that has kept me going is the kindness of others; from friends and family, and even strangers both online and off. In just over a week you can express your gratitude for even the simplest comforts in life that many of our neighbours downtown cannot enjoy. Here’s how you can get involved:

Gratitude Week October 12 – 16, 2009

  • The Gratitude Gathering
    Daily (11am – 2pm ) Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza
  • Mental Health Awareness Forums
    October 13 – October 16 (12:30pm – 1pm & 1:30 – 2pm)
    Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza
  • The Gratitude University Street Collection
    October 14, (6am – 10am)
  • The Mala Collaboration: A Social Collaboration to End Homelessness
  • Donate
    “Gratitude Week will ensure that every possible dollar donated goes directly to the renovation of two buildings in the Downtown East Side that will make a measurable contribution to End Homelessness Now. The expectation is that these projects will in the very near future transition people into a better quality of life by providing safe, clean and affordable living conditions.” The two building are Gratitude House @ 31 W Pender Street and Hotel Gastown @ 110 Water Street.

    You can read more about the Gratitude Week to End Homelessness Foundation on The Mala Blog, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

      The ad forgot to put in these signs:

      “I just flipped my apartment for another 10 grand”
      “My MP spent my tax money on hookers and playstations”
      “I get asked for ‘donations’ everywhere I go”
      “We need action, not diversion”
