Ask a Canadian: America and Religion
Noticing more religious talk at the water cooler after moving to the Bay Area? It’s just one of the many differences between Canada and the United States. However, as board member Hugh Morgan discusses in our latest blog, the presence of religion in the Bay Area is much less than in other places across the US.

Ask A Canadian: America and Religion.

Our Social Impact
A huge extra thank you to everyone who contributed to DML’s philanthropic efforts in 2019. As a group of Canadians who want to make a difference in our local communities, we selected the Second Harvest Food Bank and the Alameda Food Bank as the charities to benefit from our donations collected at our events. With your generosity, we raised over $600 for the Second Harvest Food Bank, surpassing the $500 raised last year, and collected more than 69 pounds of food. The food collected will provide 57 nutritious meals for those in need. For the Alameda Food Bank, we raised over $400 and collected 50 pounds of food. Have a charity you’d like to nominate for DML to benefit in 2020? Let us know at programs@digitalmooselounge.com.
