Meet Rena Thomas, one of our 2013 Halifax Timeraiser art winners! 

Rena has completed 100 hours with various nonprofits in Halifax. Read about her experience below: 

“I came to Timeraiser last year not knowing what it really was or how it worked. I came out winning a beautiful drawing of Morris House on Creighton St by Emma Fitzgerald so long as I completed 100 volunteer hours within the next year. 

Having just moved to Halifax I was already doing some volunteering and hoping to do much more. I spent my time volunteering at The Club (S.C.R.I) a drop in center for youth and adults with special needs, Down Syndrom camp at Camp Brigadoon and at various Artist Run Centers such as Afcoop and Eye Level Gallery. On top of all that I became a doula as part of the Volunteer Doula Program which has been the most rewarding as I continue to support women and families during their births.”

Meet Rena and our 2013 art winners at the Halifax Timeraiser. New to the program? Check out our Timeraiser 101 video and check out the nonprofits and artwork that will be at this year’s event
