To help increase awareness of ALS, Bill O’Connor, the President of Things Engraved accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge and a donation has been made.  We’ve nominated fellow Canadian retailers; Hudson’s Bay, Canadian Tire and Roots Canada to accept the challenge as well!

Of course it’s always fun to watch someone dump a bucket of ice and water over their head, but we can’t forget about the purpose behind the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.   ALS, also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a rapidly progressive and fatal neuro-muscular disease.  Approximately 3,000 Canadians live with ALS.  Help bring awareness to ALS by participating in the Ice Bucket Challenge and/or make a donation here.

Watch Bill, President of Things Engraved complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:
ALS has no known cure or effective treatment yet. For every person diagnosed with ALS, a person living with ALS dies. Approximately 2,500 – 3,000 Canadians currently live with this fatal disease. – See more at: http://westcentralonline.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=14624&Itemid=33#sthash.9Y22F65X.dpuf

international beer day imageNot only is it the Friday of the August long weekend, but it’s also International Beer Day!  While you kick back and enjoy your favourite brew, here are some Canadian Beer Facts:

  • The oldest brewery in North America is Molson’s in Montreal where they have been brewing since 1786.
  • Residents in Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec and the Prairie provinces (Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) consumed more beer in 2012 than the Canadian average; British Columbia residents consumed the lowest amount.
  • Canadian beer is slightly stronger than American beer.
  • 97% of all bottles and 86% of all cans are returned. Hey, every nickel and dime counts toward a new case!
  • In 2012, Canadians bought the equivalent of 235 bottles of beer per person.
