Rebecca has been blogging about Vancouver since 2004 and podcasting with her husband since 2005.
In love with all things West Coast and the Canucks, Rebecca produces live blogs for clients and conferences, and is a co-host of both RadioZoom and The Crazy Canucks podcasts.
Known as “Podcaster, hyper-local blogger, new media outreach wiz, mainstream media pundit ~ Vancouver’s new ‘blogebrity,’…” [Vancouver Tech Women to Watch in 2008] Rebecca is no stranger to supporting local community causes. You can see some of her causes at Blogging for a Cause.
Union Gospel Mission
Bollwitt’s cause for Blogathon Vancouver this year (like last year) is the Union Gospel Mission located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
“The Union Gospel Mission is a non-profit urban relief organization serving Metro Vancouver and the City of Mission, providing hope for the hungry, hurting and homeless since 1940. If you find yourself without shelter, without food or without hope, UGM can help.”
On a personal note: I have a soft spot for the UGM. I sang there years ago for the people coming through to eat, volunteered as a food server, and know a wonderful gal that works there.
When I received Rebecca’s email regarding her raising money for this cause I knew right away that I had to jump on board!
Thanks Rebecca for the opportunity, for all your contributions, and the difference you make in the lives of our wonderful community… I am a fan!
