BOARD OF DIRECTORS
JACQUELINE & NIC WAY
One Mom. One child. Inspiring a world of change. Jacqueline and Nic, along with brothers Tyler and Sterling, are committed to their work at 365give. Their dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family they have come to learn through their own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.
I am excited to be a part of this incredible team #365give! My passion for teaching and learning started 32 years ago when I started teaching at the elementary level. I have always believed that teaching the hearts and minds of children is paramount if we want our children to feel happy, valued, and empowered. As a Principal in elementary schools for over 10 years, I see children thrive when they give, and those smiles keep me going. I get so much energy from working with children! I love to run, I love to cook, and I love to practice daily giving!
Tammy was born and raised on the North Shore and has always believed in supporting the community. She spent years in non-profit work advocating for girls and women in sport and physical activity and then moved on to fundraising for Big Sisters. She currently works from home as a freelance writer while raising her kids. Always passionate about children and youth and giving back to the community, Tammy found a perfect fit with 365give. “I love being part of a global movement that is creating a society where people feel good about themselves through giving back. 365give has the potential to change the world and create the future we all want to see.”
Lorna is an audit partner with KPMG in their downtown Vancouver office. Since coming to Canada from Scotland, 20 years ago, Lorna has been passionate about being involved in her community and helping others. Lorna is a former Big Sister and joined the Board of Big Sisters in 2016 as she is a strong supporter of their mentoring objectives. Lorna lives in West Vancouver and has two daughters in elementary school, who she is raising to believe in the power of giving. Giving is good for the heart.
I believe it is our role as educators to prepare children for the future. Having taught for 15 years, never have I felt this to be more important than now given the challenges students face. I have felt the impact of the 365give Challenge in my classroom, school, and community from the minute it was up and running! Breaking down the walls of the classroom and taking the learning out into the world has transformed my teaching. The students are so passionately engaged and motivated as they collaborate and work towards common goals of giving in ways that are meaningful and powerful to them. Their sense of pride and happiness is contagious, and the ripple effect reaches far and wide! I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of the #365give team!
I am excited to join the 365give team because I was motivated by Founders Jacqueline and Nic’s story. Contrary to what you might think, giving does not always involve money – it can be as small as dropping off a blanket at an animal shelter on your way to work before heading to pick up your almond milk latte. I am a corporate lawyer practicing at Lawson Lundell LLP in Vancouver. I appreciate the importance of teaching and inspiring the young and old to give to people, animals and our planet. I believe giving helps us grow as individuals and boosts our happiness. It feels good to give something back – it just might put a smile on your face.

She nurtures opportunities that enable children to be leaders and agents of positive change. Using her experience and insight as an educator, Sareh assisted in the creation of the 365give Challenge for schools and classrooms.
