Save the Date for World Vision Canada #WorldVisionWater Twitter Party Tuesday, May 3 @ 8PM ET


  The year we are once again partnering with World Vision Canada to discuss another important issue: Water.  Globally 663 million people do not have access to clean water.  We take for granted how easy it is to access water in our daily lives.  We go to the bathroom, the kitchen even out outdoor taps in the summer to access water quickly and easily.  That is not the case for millions of families around the world.   World Vision Canada has taken on a 5 year project to invest $400 million to help tackle the global water crisis.  The goal is to provide accessibility to clean water!

World Vision asked a few Canadian influencers to take the World Vision Water Challenge and see if their families could go with minimal use of water in one day… one day.  You can read more about how Merry Spooner Kuchle of Merry About Town did the one tap all day challenge with her family or how Tammy of In R Dream did the World Vision water challenge with her family of six! Read more about her experience here: Opening Our Eyes. A couple more will also have stories to share before the part

We all have the ability to make a change even in incremental ways.  We would love for you to join us to learn more about The World Vision Water Challenge May 3rd at 8 p.m. EST.

Date: Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Time:  8 pm ET

Hosts:  @inkscrblr @WorldVisionCan @linkedmoms and @DownshiftingPRO

A few more facts about World Vision Canada Clean Water gifts:

  • Clean Water gifts range from $25 to $50 a month and they make a dramatic impact.
  • Every minute a child under five dies from diarrhea related to contaminated water.
  • Children lead healthier lives and child death rates dramatically decrease due to a decline in diseases caused by unclean water, poor sanitation and lack of hygiene
  • When children and families have access to clean water, it transforms every aspect of their lives. Together with improved sanitation and proper hygiene, clean water brings real change.
  • Sustainability is a goal for WVC projects.
  • World Vision provides more people with clean water than any other NGO.

Save-The-Date for World Vision Canada & @LinkedMom #MeaningfulGifts Twitter Party–Wed. Nov.18 at 8 pm



They are here, they are here.  I could not be more excited about my special gifts.  I have once again given my family Christmas gifts (#MeaningfulGifts) from World Vision Canada and I could not be any happier!  I wrote last week about deciding to making my donations count by working again with World Vision Canada. I love the idea that my donations will be matched by the Government of Canada and other partners to make them bigger gifts than what I just contributed.  So I wisely chose my gifts and donated money toward the Helping the Syrian Crisis, Textbooks for Children and Feed Children and Families for 30 days.  

WorldVisionCanada Gift Catalogue_Syrian Crisis

WorldVisionCanada Gift Catalogue_Textbooks  WorldVisionCanada Gift Catalogue_Feed Hungry Children and Families

Today I received the Christmas cards and the gift cards that I can put under the tree or mail off to my family to let them know that this is how I chose to gift them this year.  I love that each donations comes with a card that I can personalize as well as an explanation card that lets my recipient know what the donations is. 


The card lets me know that I have given the gift of knowledge, hope and so much more!  This gift impacts thousand upon thousands of children and families in over 50 countries.  You can make a lasting impact when you decided to give a meaningful gift.  Did you want to learn more about the work that World Vision Canada is doing?  You can join us for a Twitter Party where we will be discussing the different gifts and their impact on communities throughout Canada and the World.

***DATE CHANGE*** Conceivable Dreams–Keeping the Conversation going on Infertility (IVF) funding in Ontario–Twitter Party Thurs. Oct. 1, 2015

Doctor Consults A Young Couple

I am reminded yet again the beauty of being part of a family.  With the kids starting to get settled into their routines, I am reminded how much I love being a mom.  I am blessed to have three children that bring nothing but joy to my life.  I really cannot remember a time that I did not want to be a mom.  I never considered a life without children.  It perplexes me when people don’t want to have children and it saddens me when I meet people that do want to have children and cannot.  I have come to understand a few truths: dealing with infertility is not about ‘making the wrong choices’ or ‘delaying the decision’.  Often infertility is due to other causes like cancer treatment, PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) or endometriosis.  Couples don’t choose to go the long road. It still amazes me to know that 1 in 6 couples struggles with infertility and there are thousands of women and men who have been unable to access in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments they need due to inequitable of often prohibitive funding barriers.

As an supporter of those Canadians seeking help with IVF treatment, it’s important to see that some of the milestones in the progress to get public funding continue.  We, as a country, are new to the publicly funded formula of to help with infertility treatment. Acknowledging that infertility  is a legitimate health issue and medical condition, is a step in the right direction for publicly funded IVF solutions.  Infertility treatment In Canada is mostly privately funded with people having to pay between $10,000 –13,000 per round of treatment.  This can be taxing on any couple or young family so the need to have a publicly funded program continues to be a priority for both patients, doctors and clinicians. Currently, New Brunswick has some funding ($5,000 grant), Manitoba has a tax credit and Quebec still has a plan (although it is under review and likely to be dramatically altered). Over a year ago, the Government of Ontario had promised a program and we anxiously await the announcement of what that will look like in the near future.  As Canadians we need to ensure that there is a continued dialog to create funding for infertility treatment across the board.  If you want to further understand where we are in this landscape nationally, I encourage you to read this great post by Paula Schuck at Thriftymomma’s Tips.  She gives you a better perspective on where each province is in this mouse trap.

Continued advocacy from patient groups, like Conceivable Dreams gives us hope that the input that they were able to give during the building process of the Ontario Infertility program is time well spent.  It is not easy to put together a comprehensive programs that will be beneficial and equitable.  We do know that experience from around the world show that established IVF funding programs provide consistent health and safety standards, positively impact the mental and physical health of those affected by infertility  and significantly reduce the rate of higher multiple births. This leads to improved health for mom and babies and will also reduce the cost to the healthcare system.

Important Events in the next Two Weeks

  • In the next two weeks there are events bringing greater awareness in the infertility world.  The Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS) annual meeting/ conference takes place Oct. 1-4 .  The CFAS is the recognized Canadian multidisciplinary authority in reproductive science and medicine.  They will be discussing is the merits of public funding for IVF.
  • At the conference (in conjunction with IAAC) the Family Matters Challenge will take place.   For the last two years, IAAC supporters have been successful in raising their voices to say that family does matter.  You can join in as they are still looking for volunteers.


  • IAAC  is also launching a new web site (they are the national support for infertility patients.) They will now be called Fertility Matters.  You can follow them on twitter @FertilityMattrs.

It’s time to take stock of what’s happening for infertility patients in Canada.  Please join Conceivable Dreams, the Ontario Infertility Patient Advocacy Group,(@IVF4ON), Paula Schuck (@Inkscrblr), myself (@DownshiftingPRO) and our @LinkedMoms community for a Twitter Party on Wednesday, September 30 at 8 pm ET

7 Tips for using LinkedIn to Track Contacts AFTER a Conference

Blue Man Group #BBNYC Blogger Bash Event @DownshiftingPRO

I recently returned from New York City where I attended Blogger Bash.  This conference is a meeting place where influencers, bloggers, PR professionals and sponsors can meet, exchange business cards and network.  It is a showcase where toy, gaming and entertainment companies  like Disney Infinity, Care Bares and Peanuts the Movie gave us exclusives on upcoming toy and movie launches.  We were able to meet the cast of the upcoming Peanuts move (or the kids behind the voices).

Conferences like Blogger Bash, Blissdom Canada, Mom 2.0, Type A Parent and BlogHer bring bloggers together in a big, big way.  Beyond panels, workshops ad seminars at any given conference you will find there are ample opportunities to meet and network.  Be it at breakfast, lunch or dinner, vendor expos, experiential events, entertainment shows, movie previews and private invitations for a select few.


All of this takes place over a few days and can be a world-wind of meetings, handshakes, hugs (as you finally get to meet IRL – in real life).  It is also an opportunity to introduce yourself to potential sponsors or companies that may be looking for brand ambassadors, sponsored posts or content providers.

Networking is a fine balance between sponsors and PR agencies telling you about their company and product and you telling them about your blog, your audience and your digital reach or digital footprint in our on-line world.  We introduce you to our world and you introduce us to yours and we try to find how we can work together.  As a digital media influencer, networking in 2015, you need to be able to keep track of who you spoke to and what they mentioned about a product or service.  LinkedIn has a few features that can help you with building that relationship.

#BloggerBash in  NYC @DownshiftingPRO

After the initial introductions, we proceed to the exchange of business cards.  I, personally, find business cards archaic in the digital world but everyone still likes to use them.  So once I have passed mine over, I always ask a new contact if they can be found on LinkedIn. 


Because LinkedIn has the capacity to keep all your contacts in one place, you can access them whether you are on you computer or your smartphone.  More importantly, my new contact has all my contact information right there in front of them.  They can view my profile and see that not only am I a blogger, I am also a speaker (on a variety of topics) and twitter party host at LinkedMoms.  I also have a list of brands and companies that I have worked with in the past.

Yes, you can find that information out by reading my blog but you can also have all that information, at their fingertips.  Right away, they will know that what I am is a ‘professional’ blogger and business owner.  It is important that you use LinkedIn to connect with your new found business partners be they other bloggers, brands or PR professionals.  Here are my tips on how to use LinkedIn after attending a conference (blogging or otherwise).

LinkedMoms: Paula Schuck and Margarita Ibbott BBNYC Blue Man Group event

Seven Tips to using LinkedIn after attending a Conference
  1. Make sure that you have introduced yourself and your blog to a potential sponsor and get their contact information. Give them one key piece of information that they can then associate you with.
  2. Give them a heads up that you will be contacting them through LinkedIn.  This lets them be more open to accepting your invitation  for adding them to YOUR professional network.
  3. Keep profile pictures consistent.  Make sure that the person they talked to is the same person on all platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest).  Remember: do not use logos as a profile picture.  Networking is about meeting people and connecting with people.  Pictures provide visual cues for the next time you meet them IRL.
  4. Update your LinkedIn profile so it reflects your most recent posts.  If you have started to do more travel posts and less baby post, make sure that you have made it clear that you are opening new categories for a variety of content.
  5. Make sure to have the contact information easily accessible.  Be it an email address or phone number, make it easy for your new contact to get a hold of you.  You want to work with them, right?
  6. Make notes in the ‘relationship’ section of their profile.  This lets you record: (1)  notes about them – something that you talked about in your first meeting or something that they mentioned; (2) where you met them; (3) reminders for follow up.

    ABOVE: notes on what you spoke about or upcoming releases that you would be interested in.  Also topics that you might have in common.

    ABOVE: Where did we meet?  Was it an event, a conference, over dinner with a friend.  Maybe someone introduced you, add that reference to your comments.

    ABOVE: Set a reminder to follow up after the conference.  Maybe you are looking for Holiday Gift Guide content and they wanted you to remind them in September but you are currently in the heat of the summer.  Post a reminder to connect with them again.

  7. Make sure to update your status with mentions of the conference;  that you are planning to follow up or ;that you are hoping to reach out to your recent connections.  They will see that in their feed if they connected with you.  This way, you are keeping them informed and you will be ‘top of mind’.

I connected with quite a few of the people that I spoke to at Blogger Bash right away.  Some have already reached out to me to see how we could work together.  Some are probably just taking a week off from the craziness in New York.  Regardless, if you connect with these people on LinkedIn, you have the ability to keep your name and your blog on their radar. 
LinkedIn is where business people connect and network.  It’s THE social media platforms for professionals.  Use it wisely and you are opening yourself up to all sorts of new blogging (or business) opportunities.

Conceivable Dreams Twitter Party–What’s Next? Looking to support our efforts #OHIP4IVF #ONPOLI

Close-up of baby's hand holding mother's finger


Spring has sprung. The flowers are in bloom. It’s a beautiful day to have a baby!  It seems that on my Facebook feed there is an ever present feed of baby announcements, baby sonogram pictures and baby arrivals.  Its is the time of year that we think of birth, re-creation and celebration.  It is the time of year that we look at life with the glass half full.  That is what so many of us see but for many, this particular time of year when we celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, can be difficult if you are a couple waiting to conceive your bundle of joy.  You have been counting the days since that historic announcement.  The joy of celebrating is diminished by the fact that you have patiently been waiting for the Government of Ontario to roll out their plan for IVF treatment.  What is it going to look like? Who will be able to access the services? What do those services and treatments look like?

In 2014 budget the Government of Ontario committed $50 million dollars to patients seeking infertility treatment.  Promising patients access to one round of IVF with a single embryo transfer funded by OHIP. 

As we wait for the roll-out many are frustrated with the delay in program details and implementation.  Although there has been consultation with medical and patient groups, it is important that we get this funding model right.  There are lessons to be learned from other provincial programs that were not as successful.  As we review the Quebec government-funded IVF model, we can see the demise of the original program (and, currently, its almost unattainable requirements to qualify for treatment) are pitfalls that we need to avoid here in Ontario. 

We must ensure that the Ontario model is manageable and sustainable for all patients.  We do not want this to be a one-shot deal that cannot be renewed because the costs were too much over the long haul.  Consultation is necessary so that we can plan better and continue to keep IVF at the top of mind as a means to save tax-payers money. 

As you well know, if you read my blog and that of Paula Schuck (community manager for Conceivable Dreams), you are aware that proceeding with IVF treatment and dealing with the possibility of multiple births creates a greater strain on our healthcare system. Taking care of mom and multiple babies can be a high-risk affair not to mention the increased chance of pre-mature birth. All very costly. We need to continue to support IVF funding in Ontario BUT it needs to be rolled out correctly with proper consultation. 

We want to ensure that the patient groups are covered throughout the program and not just for short period time.  The future of the program depends on the success of families.  It’s important that we continue to share our stories of creating Ontario families with the help of IVF. 

How can we help?  We need to support the MPPs and let them know we appreciate the efforts that they put forward for the benefit of families in Ontario. The Ontario patient group continues to be really active and success based.  We need to continue to share the success of IVF treatment and not just the frustration with the roll out.   

We have to talk about what we should be looking for in the latter part of 2015 and then 2016.  We are hosting another Twitter Party to talk about the role for the patient group in Ontario.  How do we keep the group relevant.  Strategies on how to keep the role for infertility patients in 2016.   We can look to see how we can remain focused, positive and supportive.  We need to continue to be engaged while understanding that programs like these must be accessible to as many patients as possible. 

Join us this Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST when we discuss ways that we can support our patient groups during this waiting period.  All patients in Ontario need to be here for this special twitter party event.

LinkedMoms & Conceivable Dreams continues the Conversation #OHIP4IVF #onpoli #Infertility


In February we are lucky enough to be able to share a weekend with our Families.  Family Day has become a tradition of focusing on the family.  It is a time that we get to go tobogganing, skiing, play indoor games or just spend some special time together.  It is a time that many provinces and territories throughout Canada have set aside to celebrate our most important resource: our children.  For LinkedMoms nothing is more important to us than having the joy of bring up our families. 

I have three teenaged children and Paula has two tweens that are the joy of our lives.  One of the reasons we enjoy blogging and working from home is that we have the opportunity of working from home and spending time watching them grow and develop into outstanding human beings.

We know that we have been lucky to be blessed with children but it was not easy.   Paula has been candid about how she brought together her sweet, sweet family.  There was waiting involved and that is never easy.

I too had some difficulty but I have found out that there are thousands Canadians (one in six actually) that struggle with some sort of infertility issue.

Last spring we were overjoyed to hear that the Ontario Provincial government had allocated $50 million per year in 2015 towards IVF funding program. That should help 4,000 patients in the province.  As many anxiously await the green light to go ahead, they have also put there plans on hold until funding does occur.   It is important to heed the words that Dr. Marjorie Dixon said late last fall:

Our conversation continues…

Join us this Wednesday at 8 p.m. EST when we ask what should we expect next from provincial IVF funding ? Is there any new information? Can we afford to wait? We invite all patients in Ontario to add to the conversation tonight at this special twitter party event.

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.
