We are publicly throwing our support behind BC’s public school teachers who are currently on strike.
We are very busy trying to get this organized, but those of you in BC can join our Facebook group set up for organizing the campaign here. We are also posting updates to our twitter account and our main Facebook page.
We will have a press release as well as other materials soon.
Catch Susan on CBC’s Early Edition tomorrow at 7:20 a.m. on 88.1 FM and 690 AM.
March 13, 2014 was the anniversary of Chris Hadfield becoming the first Canadian Commander of the International Space Station, and the day Cambie Secondary School in Richmond became the first school in Metro Vancouver to make contact with the International Space Station via amateur radio.
The Flag Shop is proud to have provided free flag rentals for the Canada, USA, Russia, and Japan flags displayed on the stage backdrop for this momentous event.
Here’s the first batch of the flags we made being put out on George Derby Centre’s lawn. There’s still time to make your pledge. Text FLAG to 45678 to donate $5 and pledge a flag in honour of a veteran.
For over 25 years, George Derby Centre in Burnaby, BC, has been providing nursing and medical care to their veteran-residents from across British Columbia. This year, the Centre is taking pledges to promote the awareness and honour the heroes amongst us for their extraordinary sacrifices.
To pledge a flag with a $5 donation, please text FLAG to 45678 from your mobile phone.
For every $5 donation they receive in pledges, a Canada flag will be placed on their lawn in honour of a veteran. These custom printed “George Derby Centre” Canada flags are weather-proof, produced by The Flag Shop Vancouver specifically for this purpose, and we are honored to support their “Pledge a Flag” awareness campaign.
Help them fill their lawn by November 11th, 2013!
All proceeds will go toward improving the lives of these unsung heroes at the George Derby Centre.
For more information about George Derby Centre or other ways to donate, please visit www.georgederbycentre.ca or call 604.527.4465.

In March, we donated to the UBC Properties Trust team when they were fundraising for the event Bowl for Big Brothers Classic. In the end, they raised almost $1500 for the event which means that they received the 5-Course Tasting Menu for 2 at Diva at the Met for their team. Congratulations to all the teams who participated and made a difference!
Our flags have gone to some hard to reach places before, but the South Pole beats the previous winner of Mt. Kilimanjaro for most remote!
The Flag Shop Toronto made the digitally printed 3′ x 5′ Yahoo! Canada flag which was taken by Dr. Heather Ross and the Test Your Limits Team to the South Pole to raise awareness for heart failure research, cardiac transplantation and heart health.
Congratulations on your successful journey!
