Sponsors: @604freelancers & @thenetworkhub
I am privileged to be part of The Network Hub community. It is a vibrant, energetic and talented group of folks who, for the most part, work on their own (are entrepreneurs and/or freelancers). A few weeks back, Minna Van, Jay Catalan, John Van, and their team (Yvonne Lum and Monica Kim) organized FreelanceCamp Vancouver 2010, the first-ever incarnation of FreelanceCamp in Canada, as far as I know.
When I mentioned to Minna that we were still looking for sponsors, she consulted with her organizing team and suggested that “they could pay it forward”. That is, FreelanceCamp Vancouver 2010 would sponsor Mental Health Camp Vancouver 2010 so that we can reduce the admission fee from $25 to $10 per participant. Everything we collect from MHCYVR10 will go, in turn, to another charity. That’s our version of “Paying It Forward”.
Both Isabella and I (and particularly, myself) are very grateful to FreelanceCamp Vancouver 2010 and The Network Hub for sponsoring Mental Health Camp Vancouver 2010.
