slow posting and Mitzvah Day

The end is nearing for the school year and I haven't been at the house for a shift for a bit. A creaky old neck keeping me at bay.

I did get to the House on the 22nd of May with my school. As part of the school's community service ideals we spread ourselves through out the city cleaning beaches, helping shelters, feeding people and cleaning cars.

I was at the house with a team of 12 or so and they were given various tasks like sweeping up the grounds, sanding down some old benches that needed sprucing up, and a general good old fashioned clean up! The kids did great, but some were in need of the little instruction on the correct operation of a push broom!

The neck kept me out of the house for the Friday shift so I will be back this next one! friday.

The Blog

My name is Malcolm and I was a volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for nearly seven years. Now I support them by raising money by participating in the Canuck Place Adventure Challenges!

I said hospice. Not really a word that you associate with children but there you go. We will tell you about the house as this blog progresses with the hope that you will learn, and as you learn we hope that you will share. The purpose of the Adventure Challenge is to raise money for AND awareness about Canuck Place.

The name of each kid at the house you read about has been changed.

September 14th and 15th are the dates for the next Adventure Challenges.

You can sponsor me for the race here: Adventure Challenge
Maybe you should do the race?


Just a quick note about the names of the kids in the house that you will read about: they are made up!
