Thanks To A Generous Community


LiveWorkPlay does not have a formal annual campaign for donors or a particular focus on donations in the holiday season, but December 2012 has certainly been a month to remember, with about $12,000 donated over a period of two weeks. We’re putting a donation button next to this story in case you want to join in!

We are including in this total $4750 from the REALTORS Care Foundation, with support for the application from the Ottawa Real Estate Board. We thank realtor David Keay (father of LiveWorkPlay member Peter) for bringing this opportunity to our attention.realtors-care-margie-hooper-david-keay

Another $5000 has come from anonymous donors or donors who do not wish to be identified. We are going to share one of their thoughtful notes (slightly edited for length):

You’ve had another busy year at LiveWorkPlay and we’re so pleased for the recognition you (Julie) received with the Top 40 Under 40 Award!

Congratulations also to seeing so many members make the transition to their own living quarters where the can strive for independence, provide momentum towards employment and volunteers, and generally engaging more with other citizens.

We have enjoyed reading the blog entries and seeing the evolution of this fine organization that has at its core the highest respect for every individual.

We are pleased to be able to donate this year and hope that in a small way this helps launch and support these important individuals into gratifying lives in the community. Keep up the fantastic work!
