‘Tis the Season for Giving Back - Guest feature on Danielle

It’s December! The holidays are here - snow is on the ground, parties, shopping, the seasonal hustle and bustle. Between all the parties and madness, it’s important to take time to reflect on what is truly important. The holidays are a perfect time to pay it forward - by spreading love and kindness all around! At RedBloom, we love giving back at the holidays. Our staff spend their time serving dinner at The Mustard Seed , collecting non-perishable food items donations for The Calgary Food Bank, and adopting local families in need. Not only do we love to give back, our amazing guests love to give back too and we want to share stories on how…

What do you do?
I am an Education Specialist at Mindfuel. I work with educators both locally and globally to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. We develop resources to ignite the passion in students learning.

What do you do to give back in the community here in Calgary?
At Mindfuel, we love to give back to the community. We create unique STEM learning resources that spark curiosity in learners and emphasize the lifelong passion for STEM. We share our knowledge and that of partnering subject matter experts about topics that provoke thought, inspiration, and cause action. Through our research and programs, we provide helpful resources for STEM educators and students. We are constantly studying STEM education topics for students, teachers, and society. Our goal is to create engaging STEM learning experiences that cultivate interest in science. We love to create Aha moments that can change a single life forever.

How are you giving back this holiday season?
This holiday season we are giving back by volunteering at one of the local shelters. We will be providing our help through serving meals and organizing gifts for those less fortunate.

How do you bloom?
We are blooming the problem solvers of tomorrow! We inspire students to discover their creative potential in classrooms and beyond. As a result, we are agents of change, inspiring students to explore science at a young age. We equip students with skills and knowledge to be tomorrow’s thought leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs.

Personally, I bloom by continuing to follow my passions and creating new passions.

Favourite Holiday Activity?
My favourite holiday activity is baking and watching holiday movies!
