Growin’ a Mo!

Man Made in Movember!

Man Made in Movember!

This Movember, I’ve committed my upper lip to help change the face of men’s health by growing a moustache and now I need your support!
 
I’m passionate about this cause because one in five Canadians will experience major depression in their lives. Many men find the stigmas associated with mental health lead to feelings of shame and embarrassment, which often prevents them from seeking help and taking action. We must change this!
 
You can donate by:

  • Donating online at http://mobro.co/lyteforce
  • Writing a cheque to ‘Movember Canada’, referencing my registration ID: 2875405 and mailing it to:  Movember Canada, 119 Spadina Avenue, PO Box 65, Toronto, ON M5T 2T2

The Movember Foundation is working tirelessly every day to rid the world of this suffering and to ensure men and boys experiencing mental health problems know the signs and take action early.
 
I need your support to fund this important work. Together, we can do it.

There’s a lot riding on this moustache, thank you for your support!

Featured Playoff Beard: Rock the Casbah

This was originally posted over at Canucks Hockey Blog and I thought to spread the message by bringing it here too!

2011 Canucks Playoff Beard 2 - Day 41 - ProfileAs many of you know, not only am I a pretty die-hard Canucks fan, I’m one of many who have grown a playoff beard to support the team.

And as both J.J. and I have mentioned previously, I’m also participating in the NHLPA Beard-a-thon, to raise money in support of the Heart & Stroke Foundation in order to put as many defibrillators as possible in arenas across Canada.

I appreciate your support with a pledge, and also, I wanted to draw your attention that I’ll be the featured “playoff beard” of the day today, Friday (May 27th), and was hoping you could spread the word that you “know the guy” on the front page of the Beard-a-thon website. My hope is that with the increased exposure, a relatively decent beard (and one that hasn’t grown this much – ever), and your support that we can work together to raise as much money possible to get those AEDs in rinks across the country.

Thank you for your time and support!

Go Canucks Go!

BraveNewCode’s X-Mas Food Bank Drive

It’s not often that I drop two posts in one day, but I felt obliged to do so when I saw a link to the BraveNewCode X-Mas Food Bank Drive over on Duane’s site. Simply put, Duane and Dale are looking to collect donations to put food on the tables of those who need it the most and will match these donations up until December 23rd:

It’s pretty simple: for every dollar you donate, BraveNewCode will match it, up to $15 per donation. That means $9 CAD will buy a turkey for a family. $5 will buy Christmas rolls, vegetables and cranberry sauce. For $15 you can buy an entire christmas dinner for a family. If that doesn’t get you on the nice list, we don’t know what will! (or what you did to keep you off of it!)

BraveNewCode's X-Mas Food Bank Drive

As some of you know, or should be able to figure out due to the ads that are scattered around the site, I make a few dollars and cents here at leftcoastbydesign. It’s not much, but I’m making a snidge more than I need to keep the lights on here (hosting, domain registration, etcetera & etcetera), so it didn’t even take a second thought to drop a $15 donation towards the Food Drive.

As today is the 19th and the drive runs for only 4 more days, I challenge you to scrape together the change in your pocket, the pennies on your dresser, and a few extra bucks to contribute a dinner yourself. It’s not all that much to ask, but the effort will go a long way in making Christmas special for someone who needs it the most! Click the image to the right or the direct link above and do the right thing!

Comments for a Cause

Running through my RSS feeds today, I came across Kimm talking about her Comments for a Cause event. This being her second year, she has set a goal of donating up to $250 to the MS Society:

“Starting today for the whole month each comment will equal $1 at the end of the month I will be donating the dollar amount to the MS Society. Last year the 1st year Comments for a Cause ran for 13 days and in the end I donated $79 dollars to the Canadian Cancer Society.”

I think doing something like this is quite noble and hope that Kimm can max out the donation as the MS Society will win at the end of the day.

But what’s that you ask? What’s in it for you if you stop by her site and comment? Well, aside from good karma which no one can have enough of, there are some prizes to act as an incentive to leave comments and to further talk about her C4AC program.

So what are you waiting for? Head over to her site and strike up some conversation!
