On May 12th (roughly a month from now) people all over Vancouver won’t be dressing for ‘Casual Friday’. (In a town that sometimes appears to me to be perpetually in sportswear mode, going any less formal on Friday is something I’m not sure I want to contemplate anyway). As part of a fund-raiser for Ovarian Cancer Canada, a small (and growing) support group and educational non-profit, women and men will dress up that day, wearing “the diametric opposite of wearing jeans to work”. Glam Day, as the literature puts it, will let us all “Fight ovarian cancer and be fabulous!”.
What I have to do with this organization and event is that two coworkers and I worked on the web site for glamday.ca. Ovarian Cancer of Canada is a pro-bono client of the company we work for. We’re all pretty proud of a site that I think looks good and works well. What’s more, it was conceived, built, and launched all within less than a week. Here’s to web developer Matt Benning and graphic designer Edmund Arceo for a ‘fabulous’ job. This is Glam Day’s first year. I bet that next year it will be really big. Think platform heels and diamond tiara big.
