CALL FOR IDEAS for EastVanLove Vol. 7 ‘Giving Back’

We want to ‘Give Back’ at our next tweetup happening in early December.The holidays are just around the corner so we thought it would be great to give back to our fellow neighbours and Vancouverites.

Things like doing a soup kitchen, giving out fresh fruits, or doing some other sort of volunteering -- we’re open to ideas!

Tweet us @EastVanLove your ideas with the hashtag #EVL7 or email us.

Nominations close October 15.
