What can you do?

Learn how you can help.  Share your ideas for inspiring people, emerging musicians, adventures, arts & culture across Canada for our upcoming films.  Host us in your home, donate, buy a book, the possibilities are endless.

Donate

Worldviews Project is made possible by many individuals who generously give to us to help us continue our mission to be a hub of positive news.  Donate today by using the donate button in the left hand corner of your screen.  Encourage your workplace to do a matching grant or help connect us to a corporate sponsor.  Check out our Partners Page to see who is helping us complete our Canadian Tour!

Suggest a story

Do you know of an Inspirational Story in Canada?  We are looking for artists, athletes, politicians, humanitarians, scientists and others who are making their communities better through innovative solutions to common societal issues.

Suggest an Adventure, Musical Group or Arts & Culture Opportunity

As we travel, we also feature amazing opportunities and adventures in each community we visit.  Share your favourite one-of-a-kind event or your favourite local band and we may be able to feature them in one of our upcoming films!

Host Us!

To help us connect with each community we love staying with local families, couples or individuals so we can see how people live differently all across our country! Help us by offering to let us stay at your house or by having us over for dinner.

Ongoing

Worldviews Project is an ongoing initiative.  Even after our tour is done, Kate will continue look for opportunities to share positive news.  You can help by suggesting Worldviews Project for your next event, lunch & learn, school project or artist-in-residency.

  • Opportunities to share the stories Worldviews Project has collected.  Invite her to come and speak at your event today.
  • Volunteers with unique perspectives.  Do you have a minority perspective you would like to share?  If you are someone who has a unique story and have one hour of time, Kate would love your help in her next session for youth.  These one hour sessions allow students to interview people with different worldviews and understand that we have more in common than we realize!
  • Facilitating Sessions.  Do you need someone to facilitate a session on storytelling, diversity, building bridges or team building?  Invite Kate to lead a session.
Remember you can also make a difference by sharing more positive stories! Help us combat mental health issues by building communities focused on the positive.
Thank you to all of those who hosted Kate during 2012 and who suggested stories!  You made a huge difference!

  1. It would be a great help if could you add ‘@addthis’ to your website so that we can easily post your website/blogs to twitter and facebook… thanks!

  2. Hello Kate,

    I heard your interview on CBC this afternoon and found your energy and enthusiasm contagious! I wish you well on your quest.

    Here’s an idea for you. About five years ago I joined the board of a charity called Water School. It is an organization that teaches Ugandan’s and Kenya’s (so far) about their ability to purify their contaminated water through SODIS (Solar Disinfection). The basic premise is that you can put a bottle of water in the African sun for a day (don’t try this in Calgary – it has to be within 35 degrees of the equator) and the sun kills all the bad things (like e.coli).

    I’m sure our Ugandan staff would be more than pleased to have you tag along and see the impact that this simple and sustainable method is having on their communities. Have a look at our website and see if it would fit with what you are looking for.

    The things you said that really caught my listening ear were: water, Uganda, and schools – we are doing clean water in Uganda largely through schools and schools in Canada are teaming up with Uganda schools through Skype to partner in the cause, so it would be fun to engage your students in Calgary.

    All the best and let me know if you want to contact our Uganda staff.

    Dave Ericson
    Chairman, Water School

  4. Hi Kate, it was nice meeting you today. I am impressed with the tour that you are doing in search for Inspirational stories. For sure the world needs more missionaries like You and I to progress sustainably. I hope XtraOrdinary Magazine will serve as one of those stories that move the world. Be blessed

    • Thanks Brian. I am really excited about the work that XtraOrdinary Magazine is doing to help bridge the gap for entrepreneurs and help provide guidance and mentoring for them to move forward! It is rare in life to meet people who have a dream and follow it through to completion and I am honoured to have met you.
