We want to take the time to wish all of our friends a Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday. In the spirit of the holidays, we asked ourselves, “What is important to us?” In wedding and event planning, we have the unique task of being a part of the most important day in our clients’ lives. We also have the honour of working with vendors that have given us incredible connections as well as friendships along the way! While we are so fortunate and fulfilled with all that 2018 has brought our way, we asked ourselves: what more can we do to make a difference in the lives of others? How can we give back the happiness that we are so fortunate to experience through what we do?
This is when we realized that an integral part of our self-growth plan would be to get more involved within the community. Before the holidays, our team – along with Radical Gentlemen – volunteered our time to helping LeftOvers Calgary; a local foundation in which unused food is rescued from vendors throughout the city to be donated to agencies in need.
Sometimes we may forget just how big of an impact we can make as individuals in a large city like this, but trust us, it’s REAL and it’s fulfilling. You may think you’re just one person, but the next time you ask yourself how much of a difference you could make, just remember that barista at Starbucks who wished you a wonderful day after passing you your morning coffee or that bus driver who greeted you with a big smile as you entered the bus. These are little things that can affect your day, so never underestimate what more you can do!
