Friends of Deb Lewis and City Events, and casual surfers who may happen across this blog update will know its time for an update at the end of January, 2010 from Lenzr. Let’s pause to remember that Lenzr is a serial photo contest website wherein the members rank user submitted content and choose the best photo. The member that uploads the highest ranked photo wins the prize.
Isabelle Seguin, who is otherwise known as Lenzr member Seguini was the photographer that submited the winning image in Medicinal Plants in Nature photo contest sponsored by an Ontario natural medicine clinic she is seen here holding a basket with eight different Neal’s Yard Remedies including Rosewater Toner, Yarrow & Comfrey Moisturizer, Orange Flower Facial Oil and Orange Flower Facial Wash, White Tea Eye Gel, Geranium & Orange Body Butter. The prize has a retail value of $330.00 all of these products are available for purchase in the sponsor’s online natural medicine store. You can read more about the winners and the results of all three contests and the January 1st 2010 Lenzr photo contest winners on the Lenzr blog.
The excitement is building as the Top Ten photos are constantly moving up and down in this category. The eighth photo contest Everyday Tangled Web is designed to collect and display images of the tangles that we create and use everyday. This challenge has become a heated competition with several excellent photos competing for top position in the index. There are wires and telephone lines and speaker cables and computer cords all mixed up under desks, and AC electrical cords spider web octopuses at outlets. This contest theme and the mayhem that has resulted from the idea was the brainchild of an office phone system guru living and working in Toronto. That company conceived of the idea and has donated the wonderful prize, a wireless headset.
Also available on Lenzr this month is a rather interesting new photo contest called Kids in Action that gives shutterbugs lots of creative latitude on a wide open playing field.
The prize in this challenge is a high quality NiteWhite teeth whitening kit that’s an advanced enamel bleaching product and usually only available at a dental office as it requires a trained dental practitioner to make the molds.
Sponsored by Toronto dentist the unique challenge is designed to highlight the obvious connection between healthy teeth and healthy kids… and trust me there is a connection there somewehere!. When I look at that contest plate picture I wonder if that young fellow see riding the skateboard is about to fall and fracture his jaw, or tear his front teeth or mash his molars into the concrete. But please dont misuinderstand we dont want to see photos of tooth decay, dirty braces, gum disease or missing baby teeth or anything like that … just kids in action.
Both Lenzr contests END March 1st 2010. Contest open to all Canadians excluding Quebec and those 12yrs old and younger. Thanks for participating. Good luck!
A big THANK YOU goes out to all of those who came out on January 21, 2010 to support Campaign For Haiti.
With your help Trustee Rob Davis and Deb Lewis were able to raise over $2,200.00 for the Red Cross Disaster Relief for Haiti fund. This amount will be matched by the Canadian Federal Government, bringing the total raised to $4, 400.00.

Campaign for Haiti, which started out with the support of one councillor candidate Rob Davis, has grown exponentially in the past week. Mayoral candidates George Smitherman, Sarah Thomson, Rocco Rossi, Rocco Ashampong, Mark State and Giorgio Mammolit, along with Councillor John Parker have all pledged to put their personal campaigns on hold to instead campaign for the people of Haiti.
This is an opportunity for all candidates and supporters to get together in a common cause to raise money for the Red Cross Relief for Haiti Fund. It has been just over a week since the devastating quake struck Haiti, with the latest estimate offered by the European Union citing 200,000 people dead and 1.5 million people rendered homeless. Many earthquake victims are still dying due to the lack of medical attention, food and basic sanitary conditions. The Canadian Federal Government has pledged $50 Million to match all funds raised by the public, meaning every dollar Campaign for Haiti raises will be doubled. Leverage your political capital and raise real capital to provide relief for the people of Haiti…There will be no speeches, no stumping, just compassion.
