Sharing our resources to amplify our impact
We believe that innovation is a bi-product of diversity and collaboration and that we all have valuable gifts to share with the world. The overlapping sections of the Venn Diagram is where the real magic lies, it just takes some extra effort and creativity to surface win-win solutions.
When we share our resources of talent, knowledge, time, and connections, we build sustainable and strong communities that thrive together.
It's a win-win-win! a.k.a Winningˆ3 ("to the power of three")
Composting our way to a cleaner greener earth
Since we were introduced at SVI Vancouver, Cleanit Greenit made a donation to support the SVI Scholarship fund to support the accessibility of their incredible holistic personal and professional development in the social enterprise world.
To help us fully understand the magical powers of worms, the lovely Maria at City Farmer in Vancouver educated us on the composting process. In return, we donated a % of the profits to help support their mission to educate and promote urban gardening.
Sharing insights and experience with undergrad students
After analyzing data from SFU Beedie's students, alumni, faculty, staff and employers, Angie Fleming learned a lot of valuable insights that would benefit the current students. She's been invited back to school as a guest speaker to share her insights and experiences and volunteered as a mentor for the Young Women in Business club in 2014/15.
Connecting Tea Sparrow + Hope International to help bring clean water to the world's poorest people
First we produced a scale-able and adaptable data system for Tea Sparrow to collect, measure, and understand their members tea preferences so they can deliver the best teas in the world to their members.
Food education and empowerment for all
We made their data advantageous for Project C.H.E.F (a not-for-profit society that teaches elementary school children in the Vancouver School Board all about healthy eating) to enable their in-kind partnership and growth plans with The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.
By organizing and analyzing their data, and sharing our practices and standards, to facilitate collaboration and synergies for both organizations dedicated to their shared vision of making accessible, healthy, and sustainable food for all.
Mentoring preteens at Boys & Girls club to develop confidence and new skills
While being the Voice of the Voice of the (Digital) TELUS Customer, Angie actively participated in the organization's Community Giving program volunteering her time with various community organizations including Terry Fox Foundation, JDRF, Union Gospel Mission, Salvation Army, and many more.
She volunteered for two years with the Kimount Boys & Girls Club every Thursday teaching the preteens cooking skills. Her time was matched with a monetary donation by TELUS. By connecting her favourite hair stylist, Jacob Rozenburg, with the B&G they decided together to invest the TELUS contribution towards the tools needed for him and his team to provide free haircuts for the teenagers at Kimount.
She also connected the B&G with the Vancouver Tap Society who generously donated a suitcase full of tap shoes to borrow for Angie to share her love of tap dancing with the preteen boys and girls.
Connecting students with not-for-profit work experience
Before working with Labatt (Annheuser-InBev) to analyze the beer consumers' purchasing behaviours across Western Canada, Angie first got accepted into into their People in Action program that connected university students with not-for-profit organizations to build work experience in their post secondary area of study.
She worked for A Loving Spoonful (ALS), a not-for-profit which provides meals to people living with AID and leveraged her love of MS Excel and data analysis skills to help the organization better understand the unique donor segments within their donor database. These insights were shared to help ALS improve their donation request strategies with the goal of raising money so that nobody living with AIDS lives with hunger.
