Let’s raise some money for the Vancouver Food Bank! This year, more than ever, the Food Bank needs our help – more people need their services, and donations are down.
So, Wednesday, December 2nd, I’m organizing a Tweetup at Library Square Public House. Please bring donations, either cash or food to donate to the foodbank. We’ll then give the donations on behalf of Vancouver Twitterers during the CBC’s foodbank drive on December 4th. Thank you to Donelly Hospitality for providing a location!
Vancouver Foodbank Fundraiser Tweetup
Dcember 2nd, 2009 5:00pm
Location: Library Square Public House, 300 W. Georgia Street
Bring: Cash to donate to the Foodbank!
When donating to the foodback, cash is best – your every $1 will buy $3 worth of food. However, we’re going to stretch that! I’m please to announce that my company, Pencilneck Software, will match the first $500 in donations, so your $1 will buy $6 worth of food. If you or your company would like to match also, please let me know and I’ll add you to the list below:
Companies/Groups matching donations (in alphabetical order):
- Pencilneck Software: $500
- Raised Eyebrow Web Studio: $200
- Red Square Salon: $100
- Yoyomama: $100
TOTAL MATCHING DONATIONS: $900
So, are you in?
UPDATE: Can’t make the event? Donate online! My sincerest thank you to PincGiving who are awesome and have donated a “donate now” button to this event, so that we can maximize our contributions to the Foodbank. All donations made between now & December 4th through this button will be counted towards matching donations, so please give! This button will live hear and to the right of my site:

Very good charity work to help the Food bank. All the best in your drive!!
Super impressed with you organizing this and opening your corporate wallet. With your commitment to this (and the 6:1 scaling factor!), it would be impossible NOT to step up and donate.
Would have donated more but there's that whole lack-of-full-time-employment thing going on. Next year!
