About Raise the Rates
RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
Coquitlam. I am the owner of Vancouver Tumblebus and the Founder of SensaBus Society of BC. As a business woman and community leader, I focus my philanthropic efforts on children’s causes. My passion stems from the fact that I was on welfare as a child and I know how it feels to not know when your next meal will be. Poverty has the biggest impact on kids. Having a clear mind and focusing on school work is impossible on an empty stomach. I made a choice to live on less this week but for many, its not a choice, its reality. I am hoping that by participating in this challenge, I will help raise awareness and inspire more people to call on our government to raise the rates.
