OWC was super excited to receive a donation from some 21st-century watershed superheroes - a class of students at Barons School! They had completed three challenges….
“The Oldman Watershed Council allows everyone to have a voice and tell their story,” was Kyle Gouw’s answer as to why they chose to donate to the Oldman Watershed Council. “Everyone has a story about water. Water is not one person’s responsibility; it is everyone’s responsibility. Water ties us together. Water builds community.”
There are twelve days left to give the best gift this year. Wait…you say, Christmas is in five days. No, you have twelve days, until 11:59 P.M. on December 31, left to make a charitable gift and enjoy the benefits of that gift. In a season dedicated to consumerism, and giving the best gift possible, giving to charities and those who need it is often overlooked.
Oldman Watershed Council launches GivingTuesday movement in support of Oldman watershed restoration efforts. GivingTuesday is “the opening day of the giving season”. Giving is a lifelong commitment, and a giving day is a special celebration, a reminder to all of us to think of others and our communities as well as ourselves. GivingTuesday is more than a moment, it’s a movement.
There are so many things we are thankful for. We are truly blessed in Southern Alberta! This Thanksgiving, we reflect on the critical life support system that the Oldman watershed provides. At OWC, we're thankful for the opportunity to help protect what makes life in Southern Alberta possible. This is a call for willing hearts and hands! Can you help?
