The weekend of May 29-31 Neepawa hosted their annual Fair.  I had the opportunity to volunteer to work in the Canteen on Saturday and help with all the food preparations.  It was fun to meet and talk to people at the window and get them their items.  Thank you to the Neepawa Fair committee for giving me this opportunity.  Also on this Fair weekend I set up a table near the Canteen to promote Free the Children and sell Rafiki Friendship Chains in support of their Alternative Income Pillar. It was a good weekend to get out and talk with people in the community.

I am very excited to be representing Western Manitoba as a Miss Teenage Canada delegate. I am looking forward to volunteering in and around my community at different fairs and functions to help me promote my title and bring awareness to the worthy Free The Children Foundation. I have bought Rafiki friendship bracelets through Free the Children, to sell at different events around my community. These beautiful hand made bracelets are made by the Mama’s in Africa, to help support them as an Alternative Income Initiative. These bracelets bring a much needed income to that Mama and her family to help with food/agriculture, clean water, health care and education. These bracelets are only $10.00 each but each one sold directly impacts the Mama’s who made them and their family. Rafiki means Friendship in Swahili. Please be a friend and help me change the life of a family in Africa by purchasing one of these beautiful hand made bracelets. For more information on the wonderful work Free The Children is doing or how you can help with their Adopt A Village Program please visit freethechildren.com. Look for me and come talk with me at local events, I’ll be the one in the crown….
