Serving up food to raise funds for repairs on the Wall of Joy Mural

Hello folks!

I have a couple more shifts coming up at Save On Meats this weekend December 11 + 12 from 4pm.

Im serving up yummy food and saving ALL MY TIPS over the month of December towards mural repairs.

I wanted to stay connected to the community and interact on a more personal level with people. I appreciate the kind work done at Save On Meats with the token program and the care they give to the community so I’m happy to be part of the team.

Please stop by and I will be happy to serve you up some comfy diner food – the shakes are the best! 🙂

Hope to see you this weekend… if you can kick in a little extra to help with the mural, even better!

Have a wonderful day!

Thank you Emily Jackson for your wonderful article in Metro News Vancouver about my efforts to save up and fix the Wall of Joy Mural thats been getting a beating from our rainy and stormy Vancouver weather 🙂

I will serve at Save On Meats for the month of December 2015 and donate all of my tips towards repairs to the mural. You can read the full story HERE – One note… I gave the wrong start date! I will have my first serving shift on Saturday, December 5th from 4pm – please do stop in to say hello, get a bite to eat and pick up some food and clothing tokens for those in need while you’re there 🙂 It just feel good all around!

Hope to see you soon at Save on Meats!

Love this Jump for Joy Pic of Vinnie from last summer in the DTES

I really like this pic of Vinnie jumping for joy in the Hastings Street Community Garden. When I met him initially, he seemed a bit shy and I actually didn’t think he would want to Jump for Joy when I first approached him. Not only did he agree, he very much wanted to make sure we got a great shot. Lesson learned: You never know until you ask 🙂 In the end, I just love this photo.

Have a wonderful day!

Serving up food at Save On Meats to raise funds for Wall of Joy Mural Repairs

Serving up food at Save On Meats to raise funds for Wall of Joy Mural Repairs

For the month of December I will be serving up yummy food, selling food / Clothing Tokens at Save On Meats to raise funds for repairs on the Wall of Joy Mural.

I’ve joined the amazing team at Save On Meats for the month of December 2015 to save up for unanticipated Wall of Joy mural repairs. ALL TIPS I make while serving will go directly towards mural repairs.

Why am I doing this?

The Wall of Joy mural has a very special place in my heart. This project means a lot to people in the community and I want to ensure it will be around for as long as possible. Unfortunately, the wether has drastically started to take its tole and the mural has started to deteriorate at a much faster pace than anticipated. I didn’t want to do another crowd sourcing campaign, I wanted to come up with a fun interactive way to serve the community while raising funds for the repairs. I am a huge fan of the Token program at Save On Meats and all their amazing contributions to the community through A Better Life Foundation.

Last month I volunteered as a server at Save On Meats for their monthly fundraising event that raises funds for A Better Life Foundation called – Greasy Spoon Diner – if you haven’t been to this yet – GO! Its so good!

I had so much fun that was inspired to ask Mark Brand if he would like to collaborate on a serving fundraiser for the Wall of Joy mural repairs over the holidays. He very generously agreed 🙂 So, I’m in training and will be serving for the entire month of December!

ALL MY TIPS will go towards the mural repairs!! Please come in for a meal, a coffee or even just to say hello and leave a little tip for the mural – I will be happy to serve you. AND it gets even better! While you’re enjoying some yummy food, you can also purchase TOKENS for food / clothing for those in need – BEST GIFTS EVER! Hope to see you soon!

If you can’t make it in to the diner when I’m working, you can drop of a donations envelope with Jump for Joy mural written on it and you can also send an email transfer to info@jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

Please share this post around on social media and invite your friends for a meal at Save On Meats 🙂

Thanks for your help and have a great day! 🙂
