“Hard topics don’t need to be delivered in a hard way”
– Leela Jacobs, Founder INSPIREproject YYC –
By combining their skills and resources they hope to engage and encourage others to get more involved in their community.
The three main elements comprising INSPIRE PROJECT YYC:
- A Foundation to raise money for established charities on a continuous basis over a 12 month term. This year the selected charities are Little Warriors and Dare to Care.
- An Artistic Project that serves as a fun and creative way to inspire people and generate funds. The mini heroes portraits will materialize in art, a coffee table book and greeting cards.
- An Event(s) to feature the artistic project and provide a platform to build awareness, spread information and create social interaction. The events this season include a photo exhibit (Oct 2015) and book launch (Spring 2016)
The INSPIRE PROJECT YYC team believes that making a change in one life can be a catalyst to change many lives. And maybe even the world.
