How the Program Works: Making a Donation
Members of the Speakers Bureau are volunteers. They have been trained to deliver an impactful presentation about the loss of losing a loved one to a workplace fatality or occupational disease, or on the impact of living with someone who has suffered from a life-altering injury. Some members are injured workers. They all deliver a strong call to action regarding injury prevention. All of them are volunteers and dedicate their time to sharing their personal story to audiences in workplaces, at conferences and schools. They do not receive payment but they volunteer their time on the understanding that a donation will be made to Threads of Life.
Although we sometimes receive requests for multiple speaker events in a day, we usually only recommend a speaker present once as it can be emotionally draining.
When booking a speaker, it is the responsibility of the company/organization to cover the travel expenses of the speaker to attend your event and return home. We try to match speakers to you that live close by. Expenses can include travel by car ($.40/km) or plane; food (maximum of $50/day) and hotel accommodations if required. Expenses would be discussed and agreed to before confirming a speaker.
