As crazy as the malls may be and as easy as it is to shop on line, as I prepare to do my own Christmas shopping, I consider my personal values. There is a poster in the front window of Creative Art & Frame which says, “Thank you for supporting local, independent Canadian business”. As much as I can, that is what I plan on doing.

Many people are personally involved in fundraising, whether it is for their child’s minor hockey team, the PTA or a place of worship. Others volunteer for a number of worthy causes: hospitals, the arts, social services agencies, the United Way or a variety of health-related organizations ~ cancer, diabetes, heart & stroke, etc.
Often these volunteer positions require working with staff development officers to raise funds for new equipment, programs, capital spending or operations. One thing is certain, with government cutbacks and increases in demand for services, fundraising is more competitive then ever. So the question remains ~ what can I do to generate additional revenue for my charity of choice?
