Give the Gift of Safety

Golden Acre Garden Sentre has joined forces with CTV and Energy 101.5 FM to Give the Gift of Safety this Christmas, in support of the YWCA Mary Dover House.

For many of us, Christmas is a rich tradition – a time to celebrate with family and friends, and reflect on our good fortune. But for some Calgary women and their children, Christmas is a time of fear, and there is little to be thankful for. That’s because domestic violence does not respect the holidays.

Calgary has the second-highest rate of domestic violence in Canada and the trend is for the abuse to get worse over Christmas.
From now until December 24th, visit Golden Acre Garden Sentre and make sure you ask one of us how you can Give the Gift of Safety.

On December 4th, tune into Energy 101.5 FM for a live radiothon that will take place at Golden Acre Garden Sentre. Hear the personal stories of abuse survivors and experts as they help us understand the importance of the community’s involvement.

Erin Wilde, Meg Tucker and I got our heads together and made our own "Energy 101.5 Wreath" that is up for auction with all proceeds going towards the YWCA. Please Help Us Help Them. Make a bid, and you might be the one taking this one-of-a-kind Wreath home and helping all the ladies in need at the YWCA.

and I decided it would be cool to make some computer/blackberry/iphone wallpapers for listeners to download (maybe i'm just pushing it) but at least you could look at them and give me your input... Hope you like them...

It's been a while

I know... Sorry that's its taken me sooo long to get back into this... but 2 Strangers, that aren't really strangers any more, and a wedding kind of took over our lives since September... but I'm glad to say that I love how we all came together at work and successfully executed this Social Experiment. Did you manage to watch how this Love Story unfolded via our WedCam?! here are the links just in case you didn't...

but I think must importantly this was a success thanks to all of you, who trusted us and the panel of experts to show you that love can be blind...

as I type and I look out my window of my new place... I'm happy to see that it's snowing... am I the only one that is happy that is Snowing?! I accept the fact that I'm taking steps in life that make feel more grownup... I'm taking my relationship with my fiance to the next step... we are moving in together in January and I rented a place that we are currently in the process of decorating and making it feel and look like home... and as I come home from work every afternoon, I take my shoes off and hang my coat, and I see our picture sitting on top of the fireplace and I know that I'm finally home...
