This post is one of two that I'm writing for the beginning of 2014. Some of the things mentioned may repeat, at this point I'm not quite sure. This posts will be about 14 major things I want to accomplish this year, they are going to be big and may take the whole year to accomplish, or small things but that's ok, some are long term goals. There are lots of places I'd like to improve in my life.
I know I've mentioned this but now I have an official link for you guys! A club that I am helping to run this year is raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and I would really appreciate all the help we can get because we are aiming to raise the highest amount EVER! A whopping $10,000!!! The website is 110% safe and I've posted links on my Homepage and every other page (the purple donate buttons) but the official link is : www.gofundme.com/SAP4CF
*UPDATE DEC 4*
We have raised just over $300 so far! Please donate whatever you can, it all matters and adds up in the end. We appreciate whatever you have to offer!
A friend of mine is going on a volunteer trip to Ghana to work with an orphanage and she needs some help getting there. Below I'm going to share with you her story & and the link if you want to make a donation !
I need YOUR HELP :) I'm looking to expand my scent range for the Autumn & Winter seasons but I want to know what scents you'd be interested in (there are a couple scents that are not season specific as well). The list I've posted is quite extensive but I would really appreciate it if you could take a couple minutes & select the scents that interest you!
* scents marked this way will need further explanation, which will be posted below for your convenience!
I would also LOVE if you would go "Like" my Facebook Page <3
If you guys have been following me for a long time you would know that I wrote a post about CF when I first started to Blog because that is the Charity we have donated to over the years. It was also the charity my dad and I donated to when people wished to send a condolence gift to my family when my grandmother passed away.
I'm so excited to share this news with you and I was going to try holding off on announcing it but I simply could wait no longer! I have officially begun a new adventure and it's starting up my own business! I am now in the candle business and the company name is Live Life Your Way Candles. I have made a Facebook group for the brand and you can find it here: http://www.facebook.com/LLYW.Candles
So I have known about this group/foundation since I was in grade 9 and maybe even before that. I helped raise money to build schools in several countries over the few years in high school. I also participated in the docudrama's my school put on as the means for fundraising. We covered a wide range of topics, child soldiers, slave labour, sex-trafficing among others that need to be stopped. We wanted our school to be educated in the goings on around the world and to show them just how great live is on this side of our not always beautiful world.
I've decided that instead of just answering a random bunch of questions on a weekly basis, I am going to select a theme for each week with the help of you guys! I also due to many reasons may not be able to do them every Tuesday but I will try to film one at least once a week for sure so it will now be referred to as Girl Talk! :)
GUYS I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH.
If you have watched the news at all in the last week you will have heard that the United Nations has officially declared Famine in Somalia. People have walked for weeks from their homes to Refugee Camps for food, water, medical help, etc. There are people who died walking with their families to these camps, one woman I saw on the news walked for almost a whole month while 9 months pregnant and actually gave birth en route. That was two weeks ago, so she continued walking right after giving birth. Children are dying, parents dying. I honestly cry every time I see news coverage about this.
We've all heard it (well us Canadian gyals have); the Blood Donors radio or TV ad with the sign off "it's in you to give." I have to admit every time I heard that commercial my response was "NO it's in me to live!" But around this time last year my dad decided it was time to bring me along with him to his appointment. I refused but was made to anyways.
