This week, the media is ablaze with coverage of volunteers for Vancouver Rape Relief and women’s shelter – including me.
Jewish Independent profiles my VRR work
First, the Jewish Independent has a story about me that focuses on the volunteer work I do for Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter.
It was written by my friend, writer and filmmaker Cassandra Freeman, and while I am normally a shameless publicity hound, I confess it feels a little unusual to be profiled for this work, which I choose to do for entirely personal reasons, not any public recognition. But ultimately, I’m glad at anything that helps Rape Relief (and the men’s Housefunding Committee) get more attention – especially with their annual fundraising Walk only days away. (You can read more details about the walk here.)

Tin Can Drive featured in the Courier
The other story to hit the stands focuses on the upcoming walk and the monthly Tin Can street fundraising drive, and includes interviews with D’Arcy Pocklington and Jacqueline Gullion, two of my fellow volunteers with the Housefunding Committee. It’s a very cool article – check it out here.
Like the J.I. article above, the print version includes a photo which is left out of the online version, so if you want to see D’Arcy and Jacqueline, be sure to pick up a copy of your local Courier this week!
