The Portage for Tablets was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who chose to mark #Canada150 by supporting this awesome team in well surpassing their fundraising goal. Shoutout to @paddletoronto for donating the canoes for use, as well as @msfrosst for all the snazzy photos. Last but not least, serious kudos to Todd, Justin, Esteban, and Charlie for lugging two huge canoes through downtown Toronto on a Canada Day Saturday. We're honoured our work has received such enthusiastic support, and couldn't imagine a stronger reaffirmation of our mission and movement!

Could this photo BE anymore Canadian? The crew is nearly at Lake Ontario but there's still time to show your support! Link in bio. #Canada150 #portagefortablets #toronto #canadaday

And it begins! Happy portaging and happy #Canada150!

We've got exciting news about an upcoming fundraising event!
A group of canoe/kayak instructors out of Toronto's Harborfront Canoe and Kayak Centre heard about Rumie's mission and wanted to get involved and showcase our work to the city.
This Canada Day, they will be portaging canoes down Yonge Street - from Sheppard to Lake Ontario - to raise awareness and funds for The Rumie Initiative!
To learn more and/or donate, head over to their GoFundMe page. Link in bio.

"Yes, they can often be entitled and sure, maybe they’re slightly less hard working than previous generations.

But that doesn’t matter — because millennials will save the world." Following the incredible Social Innovation Summit in Chicago, Tariq Fancy reflects on the critical role millennials play in changing the world. Now up on the So So Fancy blog (link in bio). .

Transformative volunteering. Education for all. A movement with purpose. We're excited to be part of this year's Social Innovation Summit in Chicago. #SIS17

"The overuse of the word may sound harmless, but it’s not [...] It’s all fine and well to fund innovation conferences, innovation teams, innovation officers, and the like, but not if it comes at the expense of what actually creates innovation: funding innovators." In Tariq Fancy's latest post, he considers the consequences of overuse (and misuse) of the word 'innovation' when it comes to social impact. Link in bio. .
