TIMERAISER OF THE MONTH

JULY, 2018

Jennifer Harbaruk

What piece of art did you buy?

Stillness by Liz Derksen

What organization(s) did you volunteer with to pay for your art?

1. Canadian Cancer Society 2. Kidney Foundation of BC/Yukon 3. St. Ann’s Academy PAC 4. Make-A-Wish BC/Yukon

What do you like best about the organization you volunteered for?

In all of the organizations I volunteered with, I saw direct impact in the community…be it helping to raise money for support programs and services offered in Kamloops, engaging youth in community activities or providing one-on-one peer support to families and individuals dealing with a critical illness. They all make a difference locally. Some people are under the assumption that National Organizations only impact the global community…the larger scale research…the national programs. But what we do in our local communities with these groups (events, fundraising, etc.) stays in our community. I’ve seen it and experienced it firsthand.

What do you like best about your artwork?

Oh my goodness! What don’t I like!? Liz’s artwork is so vibrant! I love the colours and scale. This piece is hanging in our bedroom…I wake up and feel happy and refreshed looking at it. It’s whimsical and unique and captures our local geography beautifully!

What do you like about the Timeraiser event?

I’ve been involved in Timeraiser since its inception in Kamloops, from both a volunteer perspective and agency perspective. I was very excited when September announced her project! As a volunteer, I like that it takes the guess work out of researching an organization. My time is precious, being a mom of 3, a wife and a full-time employee. I want to volunteer, but I don’t want to spend a lot of time deciding where I should dedicate those hours. Timeraiser provides a venue where the legwork is done for me. I get to have face time with the organization and decide quite quickly if it is a fit for me or not. From a non-profit perspective, we have found valuable, dedicated volunteers through this process. They genuinely want to engage with us and they work hard! It is a win-win all around!

OUR EVENT
