Photo Of The Day – BC Ferries At Sunset


Title: BC Ferries At Sunset

Location: Strait of Georgia, Either Washington or British Columbia depending on exact location, North America

Description: I knew of the San Juan Islands growing up as they are in Washington state. But Canada has their own set of islands within easy reach of downtown Vacouver; the Gulf Islands. My friend Pam wrangled a press trip with BC Tourism and was nice enough to let me tag along, many years ago. The first portion of our trip was a sunset departure from mainland BC to Galiano Island. A great way to start the trip!

For a while I am going to ask for your assistance in helping those in Nepal rebuild their lives. Average citizens don’t have insurance and I would not trust the inept and corrupt government to help where it is needed most.

I am going to focus on two non-profits I know have ties in the country (read: employees with families who understand where funds can help the most) for my pleas for assistance.

The first is Planeterra, a non-profit run by G Adventures. The second is the Paldorje Sherpa Foundation run by Sherpa Adventure Gear. Both of these charities are run by their parent company, who covers all their overhead so that 100% of donations go to those in need. Both of these companies do the right thing and care for the people of Nepal greatly. Both have funds set up specifically to help quake victims.

Please consider donating today.
