Volunteer Recruitment for Mission Area
06/27/2013 was Awesome Day in Canada, part of a Worldwide Day of Awesome! Awesome Foundation chapters across Canada and around the world held special events all on the same day in celebration.
In Calgary, we had to alter our plans due to the massive amount of flooding that hit Southern Alberta. Instead of our regular Pitch Event and planned giveaway of random AF swag downtown, we decided to run a Relaxation Station in the community of Mission in support of flood recovery efforts and flood evacuees and volunteers. People could rest up for a few minutes before heading back into the gruelling work of flood recovery.
Amenities included seating, shade, snacks and water, cell phone charging, a massage chair and massage therapists giving out free massages!
