The Revolution is coming…

I work with a business coach and over the last few weeks we’ve had presentations on the use of social media in our businesses.  As I was surfing around some site tonight, I found this really good video on how social media is fast becoming the way we communicate.  It has some really interesting stats which come from the site Socialnomics.net

I’ve got the Twitter and Facebook pages for both home and business and it will be interesting to see how they improve my business over the next few months.  I think there is also a huge opportunity for clubs, charities, churches and other similar groups to use social media to communicate and inform.

Here’s the video:

Ride to Conquer Cancer

I think most of us know of someone who has had cancer in some form or another.  My Grandpa died from colon cancer when I was about 13 or so and I know we’ve had other family and friends who’ve suffered.  One of the major fund-raising events for the B.C. Cancer Society (and other similiar organizations across Canada) is the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Organized for mid-June, the Ride takes place over a weekend and covers about 200km.  Riders cycle at their own pace – the main goal is just to finish!  You can click the link above to visit the site.

Josée and I are going to complete this ride but we need your help.  To qualify, riders must raise $2500 in donations.  The BC Cancer Society has to set a threshold of some level just to keep the ride to a manageable size.  Last year I think there were around 2500 participants and if they didn’t set a minimum donation size, they would have too many riders to organize safely.

In the next week or two, we will have our donation site set up.  You can make donations securely through the site and, as they say, size doesn’t matter so any donation is very appreciated.  We will be doing regular updates on both our training and donation status.  We’ll be sending reminder emails as well which you can pass along to your friends, families and co-workers.

If anyone wishes to join our team as a rider, please contact us and we’ll send you the info.  Thanks for thinking of us and thank you in advance for any donations or support you might provide us.

Cheers 🙂
