This Month: Planned Giving
The May issue of INSPIRED Senior Living kicks off with a look at the life of folk singer Valdy whose high-energy performances and easy-going friendliness has fortified his enduring popularity in Canada's music scene.
Traditionally, the May issue is all about those who give both their time and money to support important causes, and we do it because those who make a difference impact us all.
One of the champions of philanthropy in BC is businessperson and musician Marnie Carter. A strong supporter of social activism and issues, Marnie has gotten behind the BC Special Olympics and the various programs it runs throughout the province. But it doesn't stop there. Marnie is also involved in backing the arts, about which she is passionate.
One cannot delve into the world of BC art without mentioning our world-class celebrity artist Robert Bateman. Talk about enduring! At 85, Robert continues to create his realistic art while passionately defending a global cause – the environment. Touched by the natural world from a young age, Robert isn't giving up the fight to encourage sustainability and preservation of our greatest gift – Mother Earth.
So, sit back, relax and explore the lives of those who are making a difference for us all.
