Summer Newsletter

Hello Friends, Family & Supporters,

We hope this finds you well. Summer has certainly arrived with a bang! And it has kept us hopping.

Our International Visitors

In June, we welcomed Dundeen Ferguson, President of Woman Inc. (http://womanincja.org) based in Jamaica. The meeting provided us with an opportunity to continue a dialogue that was started during our visit to Jamaica in April of 2014. We are working together to develop an international platform on women’s empowerment. We had the incredible opportunity to share best practices and learning from the two organizations followed by a delicious meal.

In July, we attended a public talk by Prem Rawat at the Sony Centre in Toronto, Ontario. Speaking of change, self-awareness, and peace, Prem’s presence was profound. Prem and his organization, Words of Peace (http://www.wopg.org/en/), share the conviction that peace is a human necessity, that real peace is possible, and that it begins with each of us.

Stand Up for WIN 2.0

On Wednesday July 23rd we had another amazing night at Absolute Comedy. Our supporters came together to enjoy laughter and good company.

The night began with a competition between 5 local amateur comics, with hilarious interludes by MC Rick Currie – and then it really took off when headliner Olivia Arrington took the stage. She brought the house down, keeping everybody in absolute stitches! Thank you to all who attended.
