Imagine a community where enemies find their common ground and make peace; where friends heal past hurts and make amends; where young people ignite their passion for service and leadership; where adults and youth alike join hands to create a community where everyone feels safe, loved, and celebrated. This is the work of the heart.
December the 8th 2013 to take part in the Second Annual Snowflake Walk to End Bullying. This walk serves to raise awareness to today’s ongoing bullying battle and raise funds for the desperately needed anti-bullying resource centres and community education. Together, we as a community can make a WORLD of difference, one step at a time.

February 1, 2013 marked the beginning of a yearlong project called the Closet Revolution.
The premise is similar to Sheena Matheiken’s Uniform Project, but with a targeted approach to raise women’s self confidence by diverting attention from the mundane, “must-buy” fashion currently over exploited by big fashion tycoons, and increasing awareness for creative, unique personal style.
Every month for a year I will choose one dress -from my existing wardrobe- and wear it for the entire month. Each day I will accessorize with garments and accessories of my choice with the intent to highlight local, sustainable, and vintage/re-purposed pieces. Throughout the year I will be asking for clothing/shoe/accessory and monetary donations for the PoCo Youth Society.
We are putting on 3 separate workshops called Challenge Day. March 12, 13 & 14th pick a day. Challenge Days is a 6 1/2-hour program, created to build connection and empathy, and to fulfill the vision that every child lives in a world where they feel safe, loved, and celebrated. Challenge Day is more than a one-day program. It goes beyond traditional anti-bullying efforts, building empathy and igniting a movement of compassion and positive change.
