Please R.S.V.P. for the @WorldVisionCanada Twitter Party–#WorldVisionGifts

LinkedMoms, Paul Schuck and Margarita Ibbott are pleased to partner with World Vision Canada for a #WorldVisionGifts Twitter Party.  We want you to party with a purpose and join us to discuss all the wonderful ways that you can re-consider gift giving this holiday season.  We will be discussing the World Vision Gift Catalogue

If you have followed along Paula’s life changing trip to Colombia with World Vision in September, you know that this wonderful NGO has provided support to countries all over the world.  Their programs have been funded by Canadians like you either through child sponsorship or through life gifts.  The World Vision Gift Catalogue provides so many different gifts that you can give to a child, a family or a community by gifting school supplies, medical supplies, livestock – chickens, pigs, goats, clean water supplies, clothing and shelter and even soccer balls (and the trainers to help with those programs).  I chose to give my family gifts because I believe in the work World Vision Canada is doing in Colombia.

LinkedMoms Chat with Conceivable Dreams Twitter Party Wed. November 12 at 8 pm ET–Join the Conversation

Public funding  for IVF advocate Dr. Marjorie Dixon

Many infertility patients feel routinely like they are living life on a roller coaster of emotions. Infertility is a complex health care issue that can be devastating both financially and emotionally. It is also very often extremely time sensitive. The treatment plan and the end result all depend on time. As we finish up the final months of 2014 with a promise that funding will happen some time in 2015, many patients are wondering when it will happen and what exactly the program will look like. Will there be restrictions? Waitlists? What can I expect?

If you are an infertility patient in Ontario, or someone who cares about an infertility patient, you need to join us this Wednesday night at 8 p.m. EST for a Linked Moms chat about public funding for IVF. This is a very special chat with guest Dr. Marjorie Dixon, medical director at First Steps Fertility in Toronto. Dixon is a well known expert in the field of reproductive medicine. She is an advocate for funding and has been a regular guest health expert on City Line. Dixon is also an assistant professor at the University of Toronto. Dr. Dixon was also consulted during the original Raising Expectations report commissioned several years ago that examined infertility and adoption policies in Ontario. LinkedMoms continues the conversation on #infertility.  Follow the #OHIP4IVF hashtag as we consult with Dr. Dixon.


Join us this Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST when we ask what should we expect from a program to fund IVF? Is there any new information? Can we afford to wait? All patients in Ontario need to be here for this special twitter party event.

Please be sure and follow Conceivable Dreams on: Twitter and Facebook.  Join the conversation using the #OHIP4IVF hashtag.

World Vision Canada Gift Guide – SAVE THE DATE for a Twitter Party – Wed. Nov. 19, 8 pm ET

save the date – #Worldvisiongifts Twitter party

The World Vision Gift Catalogue remains the favourite source for Canadian holiday shoppers looking for gifts that change lives.  Do you ever wonder how those gifts are chosen? Who receives the gifts?  How can I multiply my one gift?  You can find out more about the impact that the World Vision Gift Catalogue makes throughout communities internationally. 

One of the biggest impacts that World Vision had for me was watching as my friend and LinkedMom’s co-host Paula Schuck went to Colombia to to see the impact that World Vision Canada had in Colombia.  She has a lovely series of posts that you can find on her blog. Personally as I read about how these gifts could help so many people in my native land, I too took the challenge and put my money where my mouth is and donated gifts in my family’s name..  We can make a difference and we know that World Vision Canada has made a difference to families around the world.

I am thrilled to let you know that LinkedMoms will be working with World Vision Canada this year to introduce the 2014 Gift Catalogue.  We will be discussing how you can help share the love with unique gift ideas for your family, friends and colleagues.

It isn’t a party without some great prizes that will give you the opportunity to give the gift of giving…. but we can’t tell you everything… We have special prizes that we’ll tweet about in the next few weeks so we’ll keep you posted.  For now what we want you to do is:
