    Can you afford to give up a few vegetables? 

    Thanks to Victoria city councilor Lisa Helps, I was made aware of a Victoria citizen who has made a request for vegetables. I can't imagine making such a request is easy for the ego, and who knows when each of us may need to make a similar request. As such, I've decided to relay it here in hopes I have a friend that can help Chris out: 

    So here's my deal: I'm on welfare, but my expenses don't leave me any money for food. I've been trying to solicit odd jobs, but it's been slow. What I am most seriously lacking in my life is veggies. I have stopped eating meat and so soup kitchens are out. I am wondering if anyone is into bartering. I'm an excellent writer, can install Linux on your computer, help you set up a website, help you convert your diesel vehicle to straight vegetable oil or build a biodiesel processor, can do basic carpentry and repairs…whatever, ask me, maybe I have the skills required. I'm also offering my services for cash of course, but it seems hard to come by for a lot of folks. I have plans I'm working on to bring money in, but I desperately need food like tomorrow. I've got a decent amount of rice, noodles, potatoes, quinoa, etc, enough for a week or so but no veggies. Would really like to have some broccoli, kale, spinach, brussel spouts and other healthy green stuff every day.

    ​If you can help him out, email [email protected] or message him through his Facebook page. If you'd rather so anonymously, feel free to contact me.

      Evening to Inspire 

      Tomorrow night will be the 3rd Evening to Inspire event, a fundraiser for the BC Children’s hospital foundation.

      Of course, there’s also a Facebook event.

      IdeaWave and OneDayWebsite have sponsored a table, and as such I’m able to offer a couple discounted tickets at my table if you can’t afford the full $175 tickets. (contact me asap).
