12beCAUSE - 12 months, 12 feats, 12 charities

The last 9 months of 2020 have been challenging to a lot of people for a lot of different reasons. I’ve had my fair share of challenges this year, but overall, I have been very fortunate, and I want to give back.

That’s why I am very excited to announce the launching of 12beCAUSE: 12 months, 12 feats, 12 charities. I will be doing my first feat in March 2021, 1 year since the covid-19 related lockdowns started here. Each month I will be doing some challenging feat to help raise awareness and money for charities. Why am I doing this? Because… now more than almost ever, it is important to give back and have as much positive impact as possible.

I would really appreciate everybody’s support, even if it is just sharing this post. You can learn more at 12beCAUSE.ca.
