A Fresh Start
The road of life brings us interesting curves. BigFir Giving Co. was born out of a desire to step back and remember some of the things that are most important - family, friends and community.
After years of big corporate jobs, that saw a lot of travel, I decided to step off that hamster wheel and get back to something that makes me feel like I am making a difference and fills my soul with happiness.
The community in the Comox Valley has always been one of my favourite things about living here. It has welcomed me, nurtured my children and provided me with a pretty decent place to live for the past 24 years. The amount of talented, hard working folks that live, and make their living here, has always impressed me. But, it is the thriving artisans, makers and small business owners that have changed my perception of how you can live your best life and make a living at the same time.
BigFir Giving Co. is my idea of promoting and supporting the community that has given so much to me over the years. Hell, the secret is out about this gem we call the Comox Valley. We are not the sleepy little valley we once were but we are full of raw talent, beautiful and delicious goods along with our big trees, mountains, lakes and ocean. Let's show the world what we are made of, one box at a time!
