Taking Action!

"I decided to act on the change I wanted to see. Sometimes leaders are not always a good representation of the people they represent. One thing I realized, through prior volunteering is that there are demographics that feel neglected & ignored. I started planning this initiative in 2014, budgeting all of 2015/2016, so that in 2017 I could carry out my projects without taking donations."

"I determined this would be the most powerful route, demonstrating that huge budgets are not necessary in order to make an impact. Through lifestyle change, by abstaining from typical weekly activities such as eating out or going out at night, I can continue to invest my hard earned dollars back where they are much needed!"

The idea behind the AlekGo abstract Maple tree is; 13 maple leafs represent Canada's 10 provinces & 3 territories, while the tree trunk is formed by combining Canada's founding 3 groups; First Nations Aboriginals & English/French settlers!
