This city’s heartbeat is strong. From food movements to social enterprise to community investment, there is no place like Calgary.
I have had the pleasure of living here for more than four years, and during these years I fell in love with this city. I am constantly captivated by the passion, opportunity, innovation, drive and compassion that makes this city so incredible.
Every single person who calls this city home has a story. A beautiful, unique story just waiting to be shared. I’ve heard many – from the local food movement powered by dedicated organizations to the social storytelling inspired by compassionate charities.
Now it’s time to share those stories.
Feature Friday is a special place on the blog where we can share and celebrate the people in this city who hustle with heart, humility and hope. These stories are about those who work tirelessly to make this city a better place to live, work and play.
If you know of a local organization, group or grassroots movement that is doing some incredible work to better the lives of Calgarians, please contact me. Let’s share as many stories as we can and work together to build the city we call home. Because at the end of the day, we are Calgary. What moves us, what inspires us – it starts with us.
Let’s build a great city – together.
