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

Guests:   @Merry120 as well as @MOMEO and @INRDream.

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.

We hope to see you there May 3rd at 8 p.m. EST. And please take a moment to visit http://www.worldvision.ca/

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_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.

Red heart Save the Date  Red heart



At LinkedMoms, we have been big advocates of facing fertility and infertility issues head on.  Being able to have frank and open conversations about fertility and infertility issues faced by Canadians is important to us.  We are happy to keep adding to the conversation with a new APP.  Trymester is an app that contains tools that will help you on the journey to becoming a parent.  It has an ovulation tracker, calendar, reproductive health facts and terms, a fertility journal and a clinic locator.

We are in 2015 and the ability to use and app to help you track important information that would help with you be a parent should not surprise you.  What may surprise you is the ease of use and intuitive functionality of this app.  When you make the decision to become a parent the road can be easy, challenging on hard but there is no question, having an app that keeps track of all those important elements that you need to keep track of, is important. 

We are all about sharing new and interesting tools to deal with infertility and we are happy to be hosting a Twitter Party for the #TrymesterAPP on Wednesday, September 2 at 8 pm ET. 

RSVP BELOW and then don’t forget to leave your handle for a chance to win an iPad mini to be given away after the party itself. Trymester App is one of the best fertility apps I have seen for Canadians.

So this coming September 2nd at 8 p.m. Join us for more information and for a great twitter party about Trymester APP and there might be a few fertility facts thrown in there too. You must be present and engaging during the party to win. You can’t win if you don’t participate. Follow the hosts twitter handles below, and don’t forget to follow the hashtag #TrymesterAPP to win on Sept. 2nd.

Download it here on your iPad which makes sense because you take your iPad with you when you visit the doctor, right? Most people have a smart phone or iPad with them at the doctor’s office. In the future Trymester will hopefully be available for Android or smartphone but for now it is on the iPad:  http://apple.co/1I7XBXG

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.
