How do you Celebrate YOU??

March 8th is International Women’s Day!  What will you do to celebrate and honour your wonderful gifts to this world?

I’d like to share my favourite quote with you…

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson

Bodacious Events!
So happy to be working with Project True on their next event…Please have a read…

Project True in partnership with Social Mod Pr will be putting on the first ever True Fashion Show and Fundraiser September 26 from 7:30-10:30 at Heritage Hall on Main Street.

Our goal for the evening is to raise as close to $150,000 as possible, to open a day treatment facility in Vancouver. Our hope is to give affordable access and support to anyone suffering from disordered eating.

Currently, British Columbia only has five hospital beds dedicated to patients who the doctor has deemed in critical due

to their eating disorders. Beyond that, there are few options for those struggling, regardless of the severity of their health.

Out of all mental illnesses, eating disorders have the highest mortality rate; more people die of disordered eating each year than they do of cancer.

We are going to be showcasing four local fashion designers who project a healthy body image by making and selling to real women. Attendees will also be serenaded by acoustic performer, Ashley Slater and be listening to beats by DJ Chelsea J All Day.

For $30 you could help save a life!

We will also have a silent auction of locally made products, some sweet treats and a cash bar.
