Let's Start Building: Edmonton Tool Library

The folks developing the Edmonton Tool Library are really excited to start sharing tools with the people of Edmonton as soon as possible. Our goal is to create a library of tools that the public can access for a low yearly membership fee of $50, just like borrowing books from the regular library! We are in the process of writing grants, getting sponsorship and searching out place to house the library as we speak.

Please help us out with a financial donation to get the Tool Library launched as soon as possible. Your donations will cover things like the cost of tools, a staff position, rent, booking software, etc. We are anxious to do a tool drive and open the doors by the end of 2016 and your donations will help to get us there as soon as possible.

Prostate Cancer Canada - #PlaidForDad Kick Off

This week, we officially launched ‪#‎PlaidForDad‬, asking Canadians from coast to coast to coast to pledge to wear plaid on June 17th to help raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer.

We are thrilled to once again be supported by our National Ambassador, Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy. At the launch event, we honoured the men and women in uniform who protect Canadians every day, and challenged all Canadians to put on a new kind of uniform on June 17th – plaid! – to help protect the 1 in 8 men who will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
