Canadian Landmine Foundation Board Member and former Chairperson Chris Snyder recently published a new book Creating Opportunities–A Volunteer’s Memoir. Based on his extensive volunteer experience around the world, Creating Opportunities is a colourful and exciting collection of stories of adventures from Bombay to Phnom Penh. As Chris says, “Not only is volunteering for every age, but it is also for every stage of life!”
Interested? Here’s an excerpt about Chris’ time in Cambodia working with the Bakong Technical College (BTC). And here are a few of the book’s many endorsements:
“Creating Opportunities is an inspiring roadmap of service and giving
that others will certainly learn from.”- The Right Honourable David Johnston, C.C. Governor General of Canada 2010-2017
“Chris Snyder has provided a significant humanitarian service that has saved many lives and provided hope to thousands. For five years he chaired the Canadian Landmine Foundation that supported landmine removal projects around the world and aided in the rehabilitation of landmine victims.” – Lloyd Axworthy, Former Minister of External Affairs Canada; Nobel Peace Prize nominee for Ottawa Treaty on Landmines; Past President, University of Winnipeg; and Chair, CUSO
“Creating Opportunities clearly articulates the joy and benefits for all who become involved in helping others to overcome obstacles and adversity in their life. I recommend this book to all Rotarians, as well as to anyone who currently volunteers or is considering volunteering in the future.” – Wilfrid Wilkinson OC, FCPA, President of Rotary International 2007-2008
