Russell I. Alexander Awards 2014 Charitable Giving Fund Grant to Kawartha Lakes Food Source

The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is excited to receive $5,000.00.

LINDSAY, ON December 16th, 2014 –

A local business has just helped a local food bank with a grant of $5,000.00. The Kawartha Lakes Food Source is a community effort and not-for-profit organization of volunteers working to reduce hunger in the City of Kawartha Lakes

The Russell I. Alexander Charitable Giving Fund provides grants and financial support to community organizations that are doing great work, but may not be as visible as some of their larger counterparts.

Board Member Dr. Brian Fagan notes that “Kawartha Lakes Food Source opened its doors in March of 2002, after research by members of Rotary revealed a patchwork system of food aid by churches and social agencies. With one agency devoted to collecting and distributing food to food banks, front-line workers could focus on clients rather than stocking their shelves. …the working poor and one-third are on provincial disability support while nine per cent are on a pension. About 40 per cent of those receiving food from the Food Source through its members are children. …In a three-month period, the Food Source provides 11,000 servings of milk, fresh fruit and healthy snacks such as granola bars to hungry schoolchildren.”

Familyllb Wins Clawbie for Best Practitioner Blog

Familyllb Wins Clawbie for Best Practitioner Blog

As some of you may know, Russell Alexander and Familyllb were nominated for a Clawbie (the Canadian Law Blog Awards).

We recently learned that Familyllb had won a Clawbie for the Best Practitioner Blog.

What is a Clawbie?

The Clawbies back in 2005 as a fun and engaging way to encourage the growth of the Canadian legal blogosphere. Today, no encouragement is required: the volume and quality of Canadian law blogging continues to grow every year, amazing and inspiring us along the way. And every year, the job of choosing the Clawbie winners becomes that much more challenging! There are so many gems out there that rewarding the richest and brightest, means we’re leaving many other fine jewels unrecognized.

Nominations for the Clawbies were submitted from lawyers and law bloggers across Canada by blog post, tweet, or email ballot. That list was supplemented by selections from our three judges: Steve Matthews, Jordan Furlong, and Simon Fodden.

Here’s what the judges said about Familyllb:

Central Ontario divorce lawyer Russell Alexander writes about family law issues in a practical way. He’s clear, sincere, and isn’t afraid to experiment, as shown by his use of video content, or documenting of philanthropic activities.

We would like to recognize and congratulate all Clawbie winners and Finalists.

We would also like to thank our associate lawyers, staff, researchers and videographers who help us generate the content for Familyllb.

Thank you Familyllb readers and commentators for your passion and support.

Covenant House Sleep Out Executive Edition a Great Success

Covenant House Sleep Out Executive Edition a Great Success

Russell Alexander and Toronto’s business and community leaders slept out on the night of Nov. 21st to help homeless kids at Covenant House Toronto.

Russell participated because sleep out was a great opportunity to experience how many youth live day-to-day. People often don’t think of homeless youth when it comes to charity work and donations. For many middle class and upper class Canadians homeless youth is just not a problem on their radar. Sleep out provides a unique opportunity for executives to walk the talk, experience what many children should never have to experience, and help raise awareness for a serious problem that unfortunately plagues many Canadian families and their children.

We managed to raise awareness about the problem of homeless youth and $748,893.00 for the Toronto shelter.

To learn more or donate visit Executive Sleep Out, our fundraising drive will remain open for a few more weeks. Our target is 1 million dollars.
