Revisioning Value

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 9:51 pm

Nonprofits and investors are getting in the same room next week thanks to the ReVisioning Value Conference.

As discussed on today’s Good News Update on KXL, there is a big push for “Impact Investing.”  Basically, this school of thought says charity can only push nonprofit visions so far.  You need “market driven dollars” to help push that vision to its potential.  This is a conference for nonprofits looking for investors, and investors wanting to get involved in a nonprofit.  They’re still open to participants so feel free to register!

PJ Bowl

Category: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:28 am

Yes, our own Colby Reade was on KGW thiws morning dressed in Tiger Print Footy PJS . . . for those who missed the GNU on KXL, it was to support the upcoming Sleep County Pajama Bowl.  It’s a really fun event every year where teams get together and raise money for foster kids.  The culmination is a day of bowling at Big Als in Vancouver in, you guessed it, your PJs.


The money raised helps fill in the gaps for foster kids.  Things like summer camp, tutoring, basketball, dance lessons.  All of those kids activities that they may miss out on due to added expense.  We’ve been at this event in the past and it is a real hoot.

 For sign up info, go here.
