The Gratitude Matters Challenge

Power To Be is introducing The Gratitude Matters Challenge. For 10 days, we invite you to share with us what you are grateful for each day, post it on social media with the hashtags #SpreadGratitude #ItMatters, and nominate a new person each day to do the same.

Leveraging connections to do good

Connecting Helijet with Starfish Medical to get critical medical equipment to Vancouver Island. A reminder of how deeply community matters, and how something so small can actually be so big, even lifesaving.

Taco Tuesday – Chipotle Honey Prawn Tacos

Happy Taco Tuesday! Due to the increased time at home, I, and I’m sure I’m not alone, am spending lots and lots of time in the kitchen. Cooking healthy, tasty meals is an amazing way to show your love to your friends, family and to show some self-love. It is with this thinking that leads to this taco recipe – it’s a little spicy, a little sweet, and a lot of delicious.

Power To Be Matters Now More Than Ever

During challenging times, memories of the experiences and the people we meet along the way help to anchor us to what matters. Our goal at Power To Be is to continue to provide connection, comfort, and support to our community.

Celebrating Volunteerism at Power To Be

In celebration of national volunteer week, we would like to take a moment to honour our incredible volunteer community at Power To Be. Spanning ocean wide from Victoria to Vancouver and through various volunteer roles and contributions, together, your impact is massive.

Get Outside with Gardening

Gardening helps me feel grounded, connected and rejuvenated. Especially during times of stress or anxiety, there is something about getting your hands dirty and creating a fresh environment that engages all of the senses and sparks feelings of fulfillment, pride, and steadiness.

Why does Nature Matter?

Why does nature matter? The answer to this question is sometimes easily lost in the noise and distractions of our normal day-to-day. And now, when our “normal” is being redefined and closed in around us, it’s even easier to lose sight of the importance of a connection with the natural world around us. However, I believe that now, more than ever, we can benefit from the therapy and healing that being connected to nature may bring.
