CS3 Partners names Manitoba’s Top 100 Difference Makers of 2014

Manitobans have long been considered to be the most generous in Canada and CS3 Partners are celebrating a great year in community service by recognizing 100 Difference Makers in the province. From providing shelter to the homeless and feeding the hungry to comforting a cancer patient or making sure children are safe, these 100 Difference Makers are helping to improve the quality of life for many Manitobans.

“This list of 100 includes individuals, non-profits and businesses throughout Manitoba that have contributed time, money, services, or ideas to help make Manitoba a better place to live and do business,” said Tom Scott, a director from CS3 Partners. “They all deserve to be recognized and honoured. They are true role models.”

Lisa Tjaden from Radiance Gifts has participated in the annual CEO Sleepout and recently teamed up with the Never Alone Foundation in providing wellness tools for those receiving cancer treatments. “It’s not just part of our corporate footprint,” Tjaden stated.  “It’s a commitment and a desire to make this a better world for all,” she said.

“More and more individuals and organizations are realizing the importance of working together,” said Scott. “One person can’t change the world, but they can start a movement. This list not only represents dollars raised, but millions of hours of volunteer time and engagement and sometimes that’s all it takes.”

This year’s list includes some well-known personalities such as Ace Burpee and Mayor Brian Bowman and also the names of some quiet heroes like Lisa Webinger, Callie’s Backpacks and Lunches with Love.

“It’s an honour to recognize these 100 Difference Makers for 2014 and we’re excited to see what they do in 2015,” said Scott.
