Creative Wonders Acknowledged for Community Work

Creative Wonders Communications has been acknowledged for their generous community work with the Ethics In Action Community Care Award. Founded 14 years ago by Diane Lund to “go beyond the mind, beyond the bottom line, and straight to the heart”.This company actively fulfills its policy to get involved in, and give back to their community. In fact, their prolific pro bono and charity work to a wide variety of causes, has resulted in investing back 50% of their annual profit, and has generated millions of dollars for charity. Their practices exceed the Canadian Business for Social Responsibility (CBSR) guidelines for leading a socially and environmentally conscious company.

“Our philosophy is to bring creativity, wonder, responsibility and a higher consciousness to businesses interested in balanced living,” explains Lund. Creative Wonders are experts in the LOHAS (Lifestyles Of Health and Sustainability) market, an award-winning powerhouse boutique with local and national clients.

Their success is the result of applying a unique “Ready, Aim, Fire” process to all their projects, and encouraging clients to think economically, environmentally and profitably. Staff is paid to do community and charity work, and are offered flexible work hours, plus fully paid professional communications and personal growth training.

“Diane and her team have worked tirelessly and creatively, for the past two years, helping to lead and facilitate the emerging Interfaith Spiritual Centre of Vancouver, a sanctuary for peace andthe spiritual home for our diverse multicultural community,” explains founding Board MemberHong Leng Chiam.
