Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation

Each year, thousands of Canadians are touched by breast cancer. It not only impacts the individuals living with the disease, but their families, friends and loved ones as well. Urban Vogue is proud to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, as we are working to create a future without breast cancer. This year, we were honoured to participate in the 8th Annual Survivors Parade & Luncheon in Calgary, and the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.

Watch for exciting new updates on events on our UV Blog and ask us how you can support the cause with KISS for a Cure at your wedding!

Pre-register for our Team, UVWeddings Cares for a Cure in next year’s Run for the Cure on Sunday, September 30, 2012.

 

 

True Vision Ghana

TVG is a Ghanaian-run non-governmental, non-profit organization working to promote the realization of rights of underprivileged children that are affected by HIV/AIDS. They work to reduce the impact and stigma of HIV/AIDS, through community capacity building including treatment, prevention, education and economic empowerment of youth in Northern Ghana.

We first became involved with the Canadian branch of True Vision Ghana this summer at their annual Summer BBQ Fundraiser. It was an inspiring display of culture and community, bringing a little taste of Ghana to Calgary. We were so grateful to have been a witness to the volunteer ingenuity, dedication, and passion towards this cause.

Donations may be made towards TVG’s Economic Empowerment Program for microloans through UEnd (formerly Christmas Future) and receive a tax receipt, or directly via Paypal

 

 

A Day for Drew

We were touched by the story of Drew, and honoured to support mitrochondrial disease research at the Alberta Children’s Hospital at this year’s Memorial Golf Tournament and Silent Auction at the Cochrane Glen Eagles Golf Course. The genorosity of donors and supporters raised $18,000 on Aug 9, 2011 towards mitochondrial research!
