Summer Outreach 2008 Report



While most people were enjoying their vacations, our volunteers have been working hard at a number of summer festivals recruiting Change Makers and spreading the word about the "We Can" campaign.

We had displays at Commercial Drive Festival, Surrey Fusion Festival, Vancouver Folk Music Festival, Latin Summer Festival, Pemberton Festival and many other events!

Thank you all who staffed the tables in heat and dust, and tirelessly promoted the campaign.
