I feel awkward writing this to strangers, but we all have the same hearts that want to make an impact, so I think you'll be game.

I've been nominated for a Metro Vancouver Women of Distinction Award, and as well am in the running for the Connecting The Community category, based on online votes.

The current voting system is essentially a popularity contest. I want to change that model. I'm trying to do something different and amplify generosity through this platform I've been given, but I need your help….

    Still voting...and I just made a request from my Facebook friends to help. Meanwhile, if you do win, the only thing I'd ask is a personal tour of Vancouver if I ever visit. :)

    • Sarah

      You are amazing!! Thanks again Lisa. Seriously. You'll get the best tour of Vancouver ever, plus a VANweloveyou shirt :)

      Sorry, just saw the other comment where you asked about the project. VANweloveyou is a shirt and website for people that love Vancouver, and we give 10% of sales to Covenant House. Our Great Adventure Club encourages people to love life, get outdoors, explore more, connect with others, and experience life to the fullest. We hold regular meet ups, showcase awesome activities (paragliding! zip lining! ATVing! snowmobling! etc) and promote cool events happening in the city. Also, we do a lot of good when we can.

        No worries! I am still down here voting. Good luck in the final stretch, Sarah!!!!!!! :)

          Lisa, thank you so much for your continued support through that whole Women Of Distinction voting process. Having the GOOD.IS community back a stranger is pretty cool to see, so thank you!

  • Lisa Robbins

    I have been voting everyday. How's it going? :)

    • Sarah

      Thanks so much Lisa! I have no idea how many votes have come in (I need to ask post-gala how many I collected), but the response locally has been great towards it. Please let me know how I can support you some way in return :)

      • Lisa Robbins

        Hi Sarah, no need to return any favors, but can you tell me more about the volunteer work you are doing? I would like to know more about who I am voting for (by the way, on three different mediums to get three different votes in per day. :))

  • Lisa Robbins

    Is voting the only way to help? Tell us how we can help you, Sarah!

      Click DO on the post. The more we encourage the community to do the same, the more chances Sarah has of getting into the newsletter!

        Thanks so much for the support ladies. It's wonderful seeing people I've never met back this idea.

    • Sarah

      Thanks for the support Lisa, I really appreciate it. Anyone can vote once per day until May 23rd so if you have people that would be into supporting a campaign like this, please feel free to spread the word and get others voting on the daily as well :) I'm up against some pretty well known people in Vancouver so I need all the help I can get.
