Changes and spirit

A lot can change in a week.

Namely, I have already gotten used to writing these daily blogs.

But I could use a little help. Here’s where you come in.

I’ve been researching and Googling and digging around looking for stories, events, anecdotes and more from readers here in Atlantic Canada. There is a lot going on here, but I can’t do it without your help. If you know or hear of any interesting community events, please don’t hesitate to contact me. You can follow me on Twitter, or you can email me. I’m looking forward to hearing from you.


Today is a day to dig out purple. Even if it’s only your underpants.

Today marks the second annual Spirit Day. Spirit Day was started when a teenaged girl from Ontario, Brittany McMillan, took to her Tumblr account and asked people to wear purple on Oct 20 in remembrance of the recent rash of publicized gay teen suicides across North America.

The idea and the event gained steam quickly online, with more than one million people signing up to the event on Facebook. When the day came, everyone from students in schools to celebrities such as Kim Kardashian donned purple garb.

If you’re looking to participate beyond your fashion choices, you can tweet about it by using the hashtag #spiritday on your Twitter account and through other forms of social media.
