This is what I walked in on this AM....MELT MY HEART!!!
For those of you who know me well - I rarely post pics of myself and me wearing no make-up is a norm most days I wasn't going to contribute to this campaign BUT on Thursday Cris Parreira saw his oncologist and was discharged - 5 years cancer free - AWESOME. There was a recent fundraising cancer awareness campaign - you post a make up free selfie to 45678 and $5.00 is donated to cancer research. This one is for you Cris :)
Today was soooo special! Incredibly special! I was so inspired by the Notre Dame community today. They held a high school student initiated fundraiser today to raise awareness for CP and to recognize the powerful role of animals in therapy plans for kids like Ciaran and Shay. So proud of what I witnessed today!!! The amazing students at Notre Dame Secondary in Burlington raised over $3000 for Cerebral Palsy charities.
Intent of fundraiser was to raise awareness and funds for two non-profit organizations ADS and TEAD where the boys horseback ride -two associations that provide animal therapy to children with special needs.
My favourite part of the day was when the coop student from ND who fell in love w them last year at her placement started balling in front of all the gr 11 and 12 students - when she told them that she just needed them All to know that C and S were just like any if them!!! POWERFUL!!!
Our world is changing people...awareness is spreading slowly but surely...refreshing...and timely!!!!
