Today Do Some Good thanks BigSteelBox for their incredible commitment to communities in B.C. and across Canada!

For BigSteelBox, "we are here to do good". A simple yet powerful concept that they put into action time and time again by working with over 25 charities and non-profits, as shown on their Do Some Good profile: https://dosomegood.ca/business/bigsteelbox-3486...

Nationally, they are the official storage provider, for Habitat for Humanity Canada, donating storage containers to keep building supplies, equipment, and materials safe on Habitat construction sites and Habitat Restores across the country.

BigSteelBox also stepped up in a big way during this pandemic, by partnering with Project Northern Lights to provide storage in 4 locations across Canada for PPE that will be used to protect marginalized and rural communities, including thousands of community members living in difficult-to-reach areas in the north of Canada.

And right here in B.C., they support many organizations like the BC Children's Hospital Foundation, Mamas for Mamas, and the Kamloops Food Bank.

GREAT JOB, BigSteelBox! We are so proud that you're part of the Do Some Good family.
Happy Tuesday! Do Some Good would like to spotlight one of our Good Companies, Royal LePage Kelowna, for their amazing community support.

With average annual community contributions of $50,000 and 200 employee volunteer hours, Royal LePage Kelowna is a great example of a local business giving back to the community where their employees and clients live, work and play.

In the last year alone, we've seen Royal LePage Kelowna employees donate a % of their real estate commissions to local causes, help raise over $50,000 in food and cash for the Salvation Army Food Bank, and gather $11,000 and 445 Christmas gifts for the Kelowna Women's Shelter. Giving back to local causes and charities is embedded in the Royal LePage culture.

Testimonials from their supported charities speak volumes about Royal LePage Kelowna's giving spirit:

Salvation Army:

"Royal LePage is committed to our community as they support us to help to fight against poverty, provide advocacy, as well as giving hope where there is none. We value our relationship with Royal Lepage for the past 17 plus years and are grateful for their hearts of compassion. Here is to many more years!"

Kelowna Women's Shelter:

"Royal LePage and its team have made a huge impact on Kelowna Women’s Shelter, and are a valued community partner who play a big role in our continuing ability to help women and children in need!"

THANK YOU, Royal LePage Kelowna, for being a community leader!
Happy Friday! Today Do Some Good is giving a shout out to one of our Good Companies, Kelowna Toyota, for their amazing community support!

Take one look at the Kelowna Toyota website and you'll be blown away by how much they give back. We're talking 26 charities, 43 charity events, and over half a million dollars donated since 2016!

This is an incredible example of how businesses are so much more than the products or services they provide. They truly are part of the fabric of our community and play a very important role in strengthening our communities and helping those who need it most.

Kelowna Toyota is also in it for the long haul. For them, it's not just a once-and-done donation. They have over a dozen long-time community partnerships with charities and groups like Kelowna YMCA, Mamas for Mamas, BC SPCA Kelowna Branch, Central Okanagan Community Food Bank, East Meets West Children's Foundation, and Cops for Kids Riders.

THANK YOU for being a shining example of how to make giving back part of your business. We are SO proud you're part of the Do Some Good family!

A White Rock author’s book tells stories of B.C.’s South Asian pioneers.

A family celebration a century in the making spurred White Rock’s Karen Dosanjh to undertake an ambitious project – documenting the oft-forgotten stories of not just her own ancestors, but those of hundreds of other South Asian families in British Columbia.

In 2006, Dosanjh and her family were celebrating the 100-year anniversary of her grandfather’s journey from Punjab, India to B.C. when she realized the impact that his sacrifices, and those of others like him, had on her family.

“He came to Canada in 1906 and was really instrumental in sponsoring other key members to come here, including my father,” Dosanjh said.

“That’s where my love of documenting and preserving South Asian history started.”

Her interest piqued, Dosanjh set out to interview and learn from a number of other South Asian pioneer families in B.C. – including her father-in-law, whose own father arrived in Canada in 1907.

Those stories were written by Dosanjh and turned into a book, Untold Stories: The South Asian Pioneer Experience in B.C., which was released in the spring, and has since been gaining popularity not just in the South Asian community but beyond – including local schools, she noted.

The book has also been endorsed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, B.C. Premier John Horgan and Canada’s Minister of Defence, Harjit Sajjan.

Dosanjh has been working with a pair of teachers at L.A. Matheson Secondary – who are creating a teacher’s guide for the book, to better help teachers fold it into their curriculum – as well as the Surrey school district’s Safe Schools program.

“There are a lot of other South Asian pioneer families whose stories haven’t been told. So now it’s less about it being just for (our family), and more for the entire community,” she said.

“I started working with local schools – schools that have a very high South Asian immigrant population – because I thought these students could really benefit from learning these stories and learning about the journey that these early settlers faced. It’s about acknowledging it, and then thinking, ‘What can we learn from it?’”
