In 2016 I launched a local chapter of the international 100 Who Care Alliance. We are known as People Who Give a Damn: Tri-Cities. Every 3 months we bring a group of donors together and invite 3 charities to give a 5 minute presentation on their organization. At the end of the presentations the donors vote and the charity that receives the most votes receives $100 from each donor. To date we have had 5 events and raised over $16,000 for local, Tri-Cities charities! GiveADamnTriCities.com
Our next event is June 7, 2017 @ Milestone’s in Coquitlam!
In addition, I annually organize a local Community Book Drive. So far we have exceeded all of our goals and collected nearly 3,000 books, generously donated by our community!
The books were donated to the SHARE’d Treasures Thrift Store as net proceeds from the sale of the books will go towards supporting Tri-Cities SHARE programs like:
- The SHARE Food Bank
- SHARE Family Resource Centres
- Children’s Programs
Our next event is June 17, 2017! BrandonLarson.ca/Books
A portion of each of my commissions is donated to the Royal LePage Women’s Shelter. In 2015 the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation raised $2.3 million – the most we’ve ever raised in a single year – in support of 200 women’s shelters and violence prevention programs across the country.
I am very proud to be in the TOP 25% of fundraisers in Canada and as a donation is made from each of my sales a huge thank you must go out to all of my clients!!!
Lastly, I am an annual sponsor for the trivia fundraiser held at Our Lady of the Assumption Elementary School in Port Coquitlam.
