Donation

This season, the Tap team is giving a little bit more...

We're excited to tell you about Tap Communications' new 2012 Holiday Project! All year long, the Tap Communications team helps non-profit organizations by providing in-kind services. "We’re proud of our partnerships with these groups, but there are so many others we could help. So this season, in lieu of sending gifts to our clients, we’re investing our time and resources into a very special project – Tap’s 12 Days, 12 Ways of Giving," says Pamela Cradock. "For 12 days in November and December, we’ve been sharing our talents with 12non-profit groups, including the Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre. Through volunteer work and the donation of much-needed items, our goal is to make a $12,000 impact on our community."

We encourage you to find out more about the project at www.tapcom.com, and follow their progress through their 12 Days, 12 Ways updates on Facebook and Twitter.

So far they're on Day 5 of the project, and having a great time!

Thank you Tap Communications for doing something amazing for our community!

Check them out on facebook, thanks guys!

Carson's Story

When we met Carson Joyes, we knew right away by the sparkle in his eye that he had a great story to tell. When we asked Carson and his Dad what brought them to the food bank that day we learned about the very special effort Carson and his friend Grayson had made to bring their food donation to the food bank.  We are pleased to share Carson and Grayson's story below as the first of our Do Something Amazing project...

It all began when Brian Joyes came for a tour of the Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre. When he came home later that day, Brian shared what he had learned with his family, including his nine year old son Carson. Touched by what he had learned from his Dad, Carson then went to school and asked his friends if they would be interested in collecting food instead of candy with him on Halloween night. Carson's friend Grayson Wyatt stepped up to help right away and Carson and Grayson took their idea home and discussed it with their parents. Their parents all agreed it was a good idea for the boys to pursue and with their parent's consent, the boys collected their groceries throughout the Village of Clavet, receiving great support from their community.

It is clear that our new friend Carson really cares about people, because this was already his second fundraiser. Carson raised $180.20 for Breast Cancer research earlier in the fall by selling garden produce from his family's garden to people in his community.

At only nine years old, Carson and Grayson are already making a difference. They are currently working on ideas for their next fundraiser.  We think that's AMAZING!
