A Year of Giving Back
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Giving Back is something Key West Video likes to do, and it has been a busy year! We’ve produced projects for the Ontario government, Bombardier, Sun Life Financial, Centennial College and countless other clients. Our business is communicating the message of other businesses. But there’s more to life than just business. We’ve also spent time giving back in 2017.
Time Spent Wisely
Over the past year, Key West Video has had the privilege of working with a number of deserving charities and foundations. It’s our goal to spend time giving back to the community. In the past, we’ve worked with the Barrie Food Bank, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada and the Bialik Hebrew Day School. This year we partnered with the Canadian Association of Marketing Professionals to promote their annual awards. We’re also the official video partner of the Small & Mighty Summit, a group that promotes small businesses. Below are a few more examples of how we’d like to remember time spent in 2017.
Shine Through the Rain Foundation
Key West Video joined the party when Shine Through the Rain Foundation had their Laughter is the Best Medicine gala in late November. As a foundation dedicated to helping families facing life-threatening illness, this gala was all about letting kids be kids. We were on hand to capture the fun and the giving spirit of an event full of people who donated time and money to this important cause.
Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation
It was a star-studded night at the Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation 13th Annual Celebrity Sports Mixer, where funds were raised for the Kids, Cops and Computers program. A bevy of sports and media personalities gathered at the Hockey Hall of Fame to support the program and celebrate participating kids. This was a fund-raiser to help financially disadvantaged youth access the technology and tools that enable a successful student life.
National Crowdfunding Association of Canada
The National Crowdfunding Association of Canada (NCFA) hosted their 3rd Annual Canadian Crowdfinance Summit at the MaRS Collaboration Centre Auditorium last winter in downtown Toronto. Featuring more than seventy-five speakers, the summit was a chance to network with stakeholders from the Canadian fintech industry. Key West Video captured the excitement as deals were made and funding was secured at this premiere event.
Using our strengths to promote the strengths of others feels good. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that it’s easy to give. Please take a moment this holiday season to extend a hand to a person, a group or a cause that could use your help. Happy holidays from all of us here at Key West Video.
