Hi everyone!

Shannon and I have recently decided to bring our passion to school by beginning a few school projects. Firstly, Shannon and I have implemented the first mental health club in our school, dedicated to raising awareness about mental health and promoting healthy minds, since we are aware, and know firsthand, the importance of mental health. In addition, Shannon and I are dedicated to helping young girls, as we understand and are passionate about creating a healthy environment in school, particularly for schools, since so many young girls face significant challenges, without access to help. After reading a book called 9 Ways We're Screwing Up Our Girls and How We Can Stop, written by author and counsellor Anea Bogue, we felt utterly inspired to help girls, which has become our second big school project. After reaching out and contacting Anea, she gracefully accepted our request to come to our school and help empower girls with the right tools to have greater self-esteem (which is an issue that plagues girls in particular) and help them reach their full potential. With her blessing, Shannon and I have a golden opportunity to help others, and most importantly, get to see the change we hopefully inspire in others. Unfortunately, to make this happen we need to fund the future of these girls ourselves, and to do so, we have been fundraising in various manners. We have set up an account on GoFundMe and are very hopeful that you see the value in investing in our cause. Any money donated will go a long way and will go directly towards bringing Anea to our school. If you would like to donate, you can go here: http://www.gofundme.com/ff1kc8

We are determined to bring Anea to our schools and accomplish our dream of giving girls the tools to be empowered and realize their full potential; to become confident and in control of their identity and destiny. Thank you for your support, we deeply appreciate your generosity! Thank you!

Bravo. Mental health is a subject that can not be overly discovered and discussed especially in young girls. Resources and access are key.

Thank you for the work you are doing.
