I love having a balcony with some open views to see the beauty of dusk, especially grateful for it in the current times. I love how night slowly draws up the curtains or blanket, and prepares us for rest. I love how the blanketing of night brings a sense of closure to my day, and how being inside a safe space feels cozy, like that feeling from childhood when you’ve crawled under your covers with a flashlight to read a book.. safety and intimacy of space ❤️ Tell me dear one, what do YOU love?
🔊First time hearing the tree seed cones popping open under the sun, releasing seeds and unfortunately, mildew which I’m very allergic to apparently 🤦🏻♀️ since I stood underneath one to observe, my allergies are in full swing
Some of you may not know that I’m a designer and design strategist for my day job.. I specialize in solving complex challenges within the scopes systems and services for businesses. For the last 3 week I have been busy with a special project that arose urgently due to COVID-19 help to support the un-housed and precariously housed populations in the DTES. 🙌 PLEASE TAG 3 FRIENDS to spread the word (clickable link in bio) and donate to help Vancouver’s most vulnerable populations in the DTES. 🌐 dtesresponse.ca 🙌
I’m sharing my post from LinkedIn & Facebook:
This has been the most complex, agile, urgent, and purpose-driven project I’ve had the honour to develop, coordinate and execute yet, with ad hoc teams that came together as needed. We created DTES Response in response to DTES SRO Collaborative’s ask for assistance (Mar 18). In two days’ time a fundraising campaign (Mar 23) was launched with an ambitious goal to raise $100,000 along with donations of urgently needed supplies.
As of 10am April 4th: $101,491.00 raised!
This achievement means a lot to the front-line groups and us, for all the frontline workers and the DTES people that we collectively are trying hard to assist and to narrow the gaps of needs for.
This milestone fuels our continued efforts for Phase 2 as we collaborate with the city task force & the network of groups to work around the complexities of safe food distribution.
The first disbursement of monetary and supplies are going to: DTES SRO Collaborative, WAHRS – Western Aboriginal Harm Reduction Society, Friends of Carnegie Community Action Project, Overdose Prevention Society, Aboriginal Front Door, Muslim Care Centre, & PACE Society. This list WILL continue to grow with your support. 🙌 PLEASE TAG 3 FRIENDS to spread the word (clickable link in bio) and donate to help Vancouver’s most vulnerable populations in the DTES. 🌐 dtesresponse.ca
