VWHC Bootcamp Fundraiser!
SEPT 23rd 2020

 

A big thank you to all who joined Bootcamp to Benefit for Vancouver Women’s Health Collective on Sunday, September 20th! If you were new to Bootcamp to Benefit, we hope you enjoyed your first class! Please message Shana if you’d like to be emailed when upcoming Bootcamp to Benefits are taking place (full schedule here).

 

Some exciting developments:

 

  • We are currently close to $1,000 of our $1,500 goal from Sunday’s class! This money will help VWHC improve their kitchen area so that they can accept healthier food donations. Thank you to all who have contributed!
  • The class is now live on Instagram (www.instagram.com/alexander_shana/) if you’d like to do it again or SHARE WITH FRIENDS PLEASE! Donations will continue to be accepted, so please invite others.
  • If you’d like to donate, you can do so through PayPal or CanadaHelps (tax receipt will be issued); no amount is too small or too big!
  • Heidi Seidman, one of the amazing members of our Bootcamp to Benefit community, is organizing a donation drive in support of VWHC. As mentioned yesterday, of greatest need at the moment is dental supplies (toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste), mini unused perfumes and makeup, and NEW undergarments including bras and underwear. If you have access to any of these items, please consider collecting and bringing them to Heidi before October 1st. Email her at heidi@seidman.com and she will let you know her address. THANK YOU HEIDI!! (seriously, way to take action!)
