The Philanthropy Channel Using Television as A Force for Good

We all have it within us to find our calling.  To follow the road that leads us to our passion.  It's just a matter of listening to the signs, the sounds, and the gifts of the Universe.

Life often sends us "whispers" of what our life purpose is.  Most of us don't hear the whispers, or we just ignore them.  But sooner or later those messages will get louder and louder!  Then you have no choice but to listen those really loud whispers. 

For Peter Clarke, President of The Philanthropy Channel, he just couldn't ignore the messages that the Universe were sending him. Peter started his passion for television making travel videos.  Along the way he quickly realized that he wanted to make videos that helped people that gave them a voice.  His life changing experience came after he traveled to Rwanda, Africa with an NGO and filmed the experience with his wife Renuka.  That experience was those messages that his life purpose is to develop a channel that becomes an everyday part of people's lives.  A channel that is about lifting the world up by connecting people through stories of hope, compassion and inspiration.

Peter's story and journey is in this Special Edition Magazine "The Philanthropy Channel: Is the Power To Inspire The World Already In Hand".  YOU are invited to join The Philanthropy Channel on this journey to Ignite Change.

This Special Edition was created to start The Philanthropy Channels journey to Necker Island to meet one of the world's iconic business and philanthropic leaders, Sir Richard Branson!

"100 Women Who Care is based on the simple concept of bringing together 100 local women (or more) to make a large impact within their community."

100+ Women to choose worthy Calgary charities to support. We aim to raise at least $40,000 per year.

Giving should be easy! And fun! Now it is. Join us here.

To find a chapter in your area click HERE.  

(100 Women Who Care is in several cities in the US and Canada)

Together: Bring together 100 (or more) women in Calgary who care about local community causes and want to help.


Meet for an hour.
Jointly select a local charity or not-for-profit organization.
Each write a $100 cheque to the selected organization and watch how the group’s commitment turns into a $10,000+ donation.
Do that four times a year and witness how $40,000 can improve the lives of our neighbours when placed in the hands of deserving local agencies working to serve the community.


100 Women 3
Mayor Naheed Nenshi
And a surprise guest last night brought a smile to all the women in attendance. Mayor Naheed Nenshi.   Who didn't need to remind this group about the importance of giving back and being a part of our community. But he did remind us to help spread the word on how we can all get involved in our own city. Not long after he was elected, Mayor Naheed Nenshi challenged a group of dedicated volunteers to get all Calgarians taking action in our communities to make Calgary even better. Thus, the Mayor's Civic Engagement Committee was formed and out of that came the 3 Things for Calgary initiative.

Don't be shy or modest about sharing your 3 Things with other Calgarians. It's all about encouraging and inspiring others to take up the 3 Things challenge.

Think first about whether your Thing is for:
  • Your Street - something like a front yard BBQ
  • Your Neighbourhood - something like a litter cleanup day
  • Your City - something like volunteering for a local not-for-profit organization
Then share Things you've already done or Things you're planning to do in the space below. And last, but not least, tell 3 people you know about 3 Things for Calgary and encourage them to get involved, too. All the details can be found HERE. One of those things you can do is also take part in Neighbour Day June 21, 2014. Details HERE.

Here our conversation with Allison from 100 Women Who Care Calgary HERE.

When someone comes into your life - you wait and see if the Universe sent them to you for a life lesson and they're there for a short time.... OR you learn that they are a life long friend.  Sherry Kennedy came into my life almost 20 years ago.  She took me under her wing and helped me understand who I was and what I was capable of.  She taught me that if I don't knock on a door they'll never know I ever existed.  And we both learned that at the end of the day I should stick to speaking and not singing.  (That's an ongoing joke from me).  Sherry was my singing coach.  Let's just say I was better off introducing the band than I was singing in one.  But what I learned from Sherry was that she was this beautiful, caring and exceptionally talented woman!  Please meet my friend Sherry Kennedy, who has some exciting news.  I got an email from this talented artist who was OVER THE MOON that her song "If Only" (written by Nashville songwriter Tom Paden) is Number 1 on the International Mainstream Top 40 Chart in Europe. (#4 and #1 on two charts n Europe)  Details via Country Routes News Blog UK

Based in Calgary, Sherry continues to delight audiences with her stellar voice and sexy show!  If you're in Calgary and looking for an outstanding Stampede Party, BOOK SHERRY KENNEDY!
