Times are difficult during a pandemic. We definitely need and appreciate real heroes, such as the first responders and food carriers and retailers. A little support from fictional heroes can lift our spirit too. So, we are calling upon a long time friend to the rescue. Directly from Charlie Brown Café in Singapore, learn how to draw Charlie step by step.
This week, we join Volunteer Canada in cheering and applauding all involved in volunteer activities accross the country. We launched our website almost a year ago now. Thank you Halton Community Services who helped us with our recruiting.
Two big thumbs up to our own crew of social media dynamos. Starting with Joshua who was the first to take on the challenge like a champion and keeps our Instagram profile at around 1 000 subscribers. Go see the images, all so uplifting!
Mary makes our LinkedIn profile well connected and a mine of interesting, news and articles, with insights from experts. As she puts it herself: « I tend to the LinkedIn profile for CDIC-CIDE. I really enjoy managing the account because I love being connected to the world and understanding how preserving children’s works can be done through social media outlets. It also helps me keep up to date on the ever changing trends in the art world and the local and global businesses that bring us together. »
Sangeetha jumped right into the action when she was handed over the Twitter for CDIC-CIDE. She is at it one tweet at a time, consistently even as she began a new position that keeps her tremendous digital skills as busy as ever. What a trooper!
Anubin works steadily behind the scene on our Facebook page. The Likes keep coming everyday. He has some good words for us: « In the times that we are going through, I would like to express my pride and unconditional support to all the frontline workers serving our community day in and day out including the pharmacy and convenience store staff who are ensuring that we all have the necessary supplies and supporting our well being. I would also like to extend warmth to the international students and new immigrants who have moved to Canada in the hope of a better future and pray that they don’t lose their spirit in this time of isolation. We are all in this together and each and everyone of us is willing to support and guide you through this until we get back on our feet stronger and more resilient than ever. »
Andrea joined us just this past month. Mother of a toddler, she is finding time to help us with building a Youtube channel. Watch for it later in 2020, because she has ambitions as you can hear her say: « I would love for my life long interest in video and film grow into a fulfilling and successful career. » Stay tuned!
We are lucky that imagination and playfulness cannot be confined, at least not for long. A short springtime walk in the neighborhood, and young surveyors are at work, measuring and marking the times. Future graffiti artists? No, just fooling around with hope. Stay safe everyone.
