Hello Lewy Warriors!
We apologize for the lateness of this monthly update. As some of you may remember, we took a week off in the latter half of August and during that time I (the IT and social media manager) traveled to Portugal. It was an amazing trip but I unfortunately ran into some issues and was stuck in Portugal for longer than expected. As we mentioned on our Facebook Page last week, this meant that we were unable to fully open things back up at CLBDI until I returned. I'm home now and we're catching up on everything we missed. We have a few things to cover today so let's get to it!
Firstly, due to the extended absence and so that we can maximize the reach of our show, we've decided to extend the second CLBDI digital art show until Thanksgiving! Now you all have more time to go and check out the amazing artwork donated by the many talented artists! Visit the CLBDI Online Gallery today and be sure to share the link to the show with friends and family.
In related news, we are also toying with the idea of having a small, local, in-person viewing event at the end of the digital portion of the show. If this idea comes to fruition, we hope to invite everyone in the Waterloo Region to come and check out these amazing works of art in person. More information on that soon.
Secondly, we unfortunately ran into some issues with our email account and have not had access to it since the 20th of August. We were unable to fix it until I had returned from Portugal but we managed to reach the people that we needed to speak with to get it fixed and the issue has since been resolved. We've been told that the email account should be up and running tomorrow evening. With that being said, if you have reached out to us during these past three weeks, we may not have received your email. If you don't hear back from us, please reach out again. We're so sorry for the lack of communication.
We are still working on branching out to other social media platforms and getting our Youtube page up and running as well. We're obviously running a bit behind and playing catch up at the moment but we still have plans to expand to other platforms and bring you original LBD content. There will defintely be more information on CLBDI's next steps in the September update.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased artwork, donated to UWO, and reached out to us in the past month. We're hearing more and more of your stories and connecting to more and more people who are on their own LBD journey. We are so grateful to be able to help everyone out, whether they just need someone to talk to, are looking for information about LBD, or are looking for resources in our community. We also have heard that some younger Lewy Warriors have been raising money and donating to UWO on our behalf and have joined London, who donated a piece to the art show, in raising funds and awareness about LBD. We wanted to thank them for their compassion and generosity. Together we really can make a difference.
Ok, that is all for this month. We hope everyone has had a wonderful end to their summer and you are all looking forward to the coming holiday season(s). We sure are.
All the best,
Joe and the CLBDI Team
