This is my 14th submission in the Toronto Is Awesome series. I would love your comments, thoughts and future suggestions for this series.
Every year, since before time began, Uncle Neil and his friends have been putting on a concert to raise money and toys for children during Christmas. Tomorrow, Sunday December 8th, is their next event.
Last year I met Neil and had the chance to go to the Toy Mountain Concert. I was floored. There was toys (thousands of them) all over the place. From the floor to the ceiling. All over the place. And the place was packed with people of all ages. Especially children.
Neil and his friends are truly one of those groups of people that make Toronto Awesome!
Hope to see you at the concert tomorrow. Click on THIS LINK for details.
Truly one of the most revered human beings of my generation. Honoured countless times by nations around the world including Canada. There are schools in our city that are also named after him. On behalf of everyone, thanks you Madiba. You may be missed but your spirit and message live forever.
Because you lived you made us awesome. All of us.
Stop! I am not one of those people who blindly “love” our cops. Sometimes they can be found in compromising situations. Many times, their actions run counter to “To Serve and Protect”. I understand all this. However, what they put themselves through on a daily basis is admirable. Sure they get paid pretty good compared to you and I. But they put themselves in harm’s way every single day to make our city that much safer.
And for that simple fact, the TPS make Toronto awesome!

I’ve written about co-working spaces in this blog a number of times before:
These lists are far from complete, so if you find a place in Toronto that offers co-working space let people know about it. And consider adding it in the comments section below.
Coworking venues have given small startups and even independent professionals an opportunity to grow and collaborate with like-minded entrepreneurs. And Toronto is home to plenty of coworking spaces, startups, independent professionals and budding entrepreneurs. And that’s another reason Toronto is awesome!
I have my hands full these days working with some really interesting brands on their digital content. Many times I find inspiration from what I see other brands doing. And many of my friends can tell you how HUGE of a fan I am of what RedBull has been consistently doing to raise the bar when it comes to storytelling.
Recently, another beverage company, Coca-Cola, embarked on their own journey of sorts. They recently launched their new website and I wrote about it on the Catalyst blog.
Let me know what you think in the comments section. Thanks!
This is my tenth submission in the Toronto Is Awesome series. I would love your comments, thoughts and future suggestions for this series.
