Several months ago I was presented an award for "workplace excellence" by the Nanaimo Chamber Of Commerce (something I am extremely proud of).

Most importantly, how can we DO MORE!  It was then that I came up with the idea to launch a unique charity program...

I had a few Realtor clients and ever since my involvement as a senior moderator SEO Chat I was addicted to community learning so I thought I would create a forum for us to inter...
