Living our purpose by giving back to the community.
Karen Climbs for Kids
When we see one of our business partners doing something so amazing, we get very excited, and we want to shout it from the mountain tops so that everyone knows about it!
On July 23rd, 2021, Karen Knowlton of Stawowski McGill will stand atop the summit of Mount Athabasca (3,491m) in Jasper National Park. Her challenging climb will raise awareness and money to help I Can For Kids tackle a mountain of childhood hunger every day. It is a cause that is near and dear to Karen’s heart and purpose. In reaching the summit, Karen has a fundraising goal of $25,000 – an amount that will provide nutritional support for 1200 children in the Calgary area. This is an initiative that feeds Karen’s community spirit and will help I Can for Kids feed more hungry kids. Nutritious food helps kids grow, cope with stress, do better in school, engage more with peers, and give them a better chance – a fighting chance – of growing into healthy adults.
Let’s work together to help Karen reach, or better yet, exceed, her goal of $25,000. To donate to this amazing initiative and cause, click here.
Kudos to Karen for taking on this incredible initiative and doing her part to help Build a Better World for our Community!

For the past few months, our community initiatives focused on what we can do, help with, or give to lend our support and build our community. It is too often forgotten that sometimes, the best thing you can give is a genuine human connection…
Returning the Favour
We believe in the strength of community. Without the support of our community, friends and families, collaborators, and industry peers, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Throughout our years working to Build a Better World, we’ve learned the importance of giving back. We promote Corporate Social Responsibility, a business approach that contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits for all. We focus our efforts on collaboration, reciprocity, and creating win-win scenarios to foster an environment of mutual understanding, growth, and fulfilment. We are proud to give back to the community that has helped shape who we are.
