Don't forget to vote for Free The Children to win $250,00 from the Vivint Gives Back Project -

http://www.vivint.com/givesbackproject/charity/139


Between June 14 - August 27, you can vote for one charity per day. The charity that has earned the most overall votes will then be awarded $250,000. The remaining charities that earn the most from each of the regions will each receive a $100,000 donation.

Free The Children are currently in 7th place in Canada (67th overall) with 527 votes ... I'm surprised to see so few votes considering how popular this organization is across Canada.

Please spread the word and help FTC win so they can help even more children.

I'd do it for you but I can't get into my regular Admin account ... seems the Powers That Be in the tech department decided I didn't need access to my account anymore :shock: Hopefully they rectify that very shortly!! At least they seem to have unbanned my IP addresses and I was able to get in with my "tester" Forumer account - I don't want to click on logout in case I can't get back in :x

btw, it's janet 8-)


no problem janet, i hope i did that right :P

I'm pretty sure they're back.
plus it's been awhile since any photos have been posted too.

the album on facebook is just all the pictures that we've been posting on here :)

it is nice to have you back with your own name, though you're green? why not red anymore?

i'm surprised they only went for a week...it doesn't seem like a very long time to get much done...it was probably more like a meeting people kind of trip as opposed to the kenya building stuff kind i guess :P

blog from hedley about india http://www.hedleyonline.com/blog/detail.aspx?nid=1533

We arrived back to Canada on Friday after 12 days in India with Free the Children. We had unique opportunity to see many great things in a very beautiful country. We had the great pleasure and privilege of travelling with Marc Kielburger and his incredible India team, who were so kind and welcoming, and very willing to show us their incredible country. It was an amazing, eye opening experience. We have been huge supporters of Free the Children for a few years now and it was really great to see the profound work they're doing first hand. If you're not familiar with Free the Children go to www.freethechildren.com now and find out how you can be involved!
Check back soon for more updates, and news from the studio!
