I was waiting for the “right time” to publish this blog and make this announcement… I also wanted to make sure it was perfect, polished and had all the “right” words. But I don’t want to wait any longer… so here it is.

Ever since I was I was a child,

I have been passionate about helping others. My dream was always to do something big. Something that had a ripple effect globally. As I get older, I realize the importance of starting right where I am and try to reach as many people as I can in my own community. I realized that will result in its own ripple effect.

I am passionate about making a difference in people’s lives, big or small. I love making people happy, making them smile, and if I can even get them to laugh… {well let’s just say I try. But I am not about to go solo as a stand up comedian any time soon. I think they usually just end up laughing at me, or laughing because my jokes are just that bad.}

It probably isn’t apparent in this blog, but talking about myself isn’t something I love to do. In fact, it has always made me slightly uncomfortable. I never wanted people to think I was bragging. And to be honest, as I was writing this, I was thinking - do I really need to write that? Do I really need to include that? How can I not make this about me… because I really don’t want it to be about me. But in the same breath, I want you to get to know me a little better in the hopes you can see and understand my intentions, my desires, my hopes and values, and my vision! Because maybe, just maybe, by sharing my story it may inspire people to get on board and help me, help others. Or even better, maybe it will inspire someone to take advantage of the next opportunity that crosses their path.

So getting back to it -

I have always wanted to be involved in helping people as much as I can, from wherever I am. As a young child and teenager, with the help and guidance of my mother and family, I founded a few fundraisers: Beanies for Afghani’s and Ribbons for Relief being the two most prominent and successful campaigns. I was recognized by the Edmonton Red Cross for my efforts as well as being awarded the “Spruce Grove’s Leaders of Tomorrow” award two consecutive years. Most recently I had the pleasure of working alongside Team In Training to raise money for the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Society. It was both humbling and rewarding.

Now for the exciting part…

GLASS SLIPPER ENTERTAINMENT is excited to announce our Princess Nomination campaignDreams Come True”. With your help, we will be giving away a Princess visit to a child (or children) in need; someone who could really use a little bit of magic and happiness in their life. We would love for you to nominate a child who you think would truly benefit from a magical visit from their favourite fairytale Princess. 

With your help, each quarter (once every three months), we will make a child’s dream come true!

Here’s how it’ll work:

  • Head over to our nomination page and fill out the form.

  • We will go through the nominations as they come in and near the end of each quarter, we will announce who will be getting visit from a fairytale Princess!

  • It is important to note, if we choose the child you nominate, we will be in contact with you (or someone you redirect us to) to organize and plan the successful Princess visit.

For my own curiosity, I wanted to see if Google could come up with something if I typed in “Beanies for Afghanis”. (Since this campaign was back in 2001!) This is what I found: https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/476718889/ . If you look closely you can see my little face on the left surrounded by Beanie Babies. My childhood best friend is the little girl on the right.
