This year, we wanted YWiB Philanthropy be to bigger than ever. That meant renaming it to Women’s Initiative in Spreading Hope (WISH), and launching it at the Philanthropy Orientation event on Jan 14 at SFU's Burnaby campus.
At the event, members socialized over red velvet and vanilla cupcakes as the WISH executive team introduced the program and the events in store for the year! Our goal is to offer our members opportunities to give back to different charitable organizations around Vancouver. Throughout the year we will add philanthropic activities to the general member events, just like the successful handbag drive we conducted for Dress For Success Vancouver during the Personal Branding workshop. The WISH team will also be planning our own events that will focus on helping the greater community through fun activities. Stay updated by checking out our website and reading the YWiB newsletter!
We are so excited about all the interest and enthusiasm we’ve received for WISH, and we can’t wait to see you at our upcoming events! Join us in spreading hope and love to those in need. Let’s make WISH’s first year a great and memorable one!
