2 Fun Things Vancouverites Can Do That Also Make a Difference in a Post-Trump World
Because we've got to do something with this lump of dread in our stomachs.
November 10, 2016
Everyone’s experiencing their own stages of grief in this post-election world. For us, day one involved having a little cry at our desks every 20 minutes; day two so far has been about searching frantically for some way, any way, to feel like we’re combatting this no-good, very-bad news. Day three presumably will involve some binge-eating.
But! Back to today, day two, where we have already spotted not one but two ways to make even a tiny difference, with hopefully more options to come from other grieving, angry, tearful, hopeful Vancouverites who are marching forward, day by day.
November 13. Improv institution The Sunday Service takes their usual spot on the stage Sunday night, but this time with a portion of ticket sales going to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. This will be a great test to see if we can actually ever laugh again.
November 17. Hit up the Fox Cabaret next week for a Thursday night dance party, with 100% of ticket proceeds benefiting organizations like Planned Parenthood and Black Lives Matter. (Plus, shaking it out releases endorphins, and we could all use a little boost.)
