Our trip to Vancouver coincided with Vancouver Pride, so we were happy to be able to jump in on some LGBT Pride activities while in one of our favorite cities in the world.
In the spirit of Pride and giving back in general, we decided to make a point of making some kind of a contribution to a worthy local cause. When we saw an advertisement for a pancake breakfast benefiting a charity, our foodie selves knew we had found the answer.
A Loving Spoonful, an organization that delivers meals to people living with HIV/AIDS, was the recipient of proceeds from the breakfast. We got killer pancakes and all of the accompaniments from Whole Foods, the sponsor (lucky us!), and a solid charity got a boost along the way.
The best way to make a difference is to roll giving back into everyday activities.
