Double Signing

I am very happy to announce that I will be signing Kilimanjaro and Beyond alongside the Kilimanjaro Grannies, who will be signing their collaborative coffee-table book, Kilimanjaro: A Purposeful Journey. A portion of the sale of Kilimanjaro and Beyond goes to Plan Canada for helping young women start small businesses in Tanzania. All the proceeds from the sale of the Grannies' book goes to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign and the Snowy Owl AIDS Foundation.

The signings will take place on Saturday, December 3 at Collected Works, 1242 Wellington Street, Ottawa from 1-3 pm. 

Come out and say "hello" and finish your Christmas  shopping at the same time.

"Just Watch Me" Competition

I just became aware of a competition for entrepreneurs with disabilities in my home province of Manitoba, Canada.  My cousin's grandson-in-law, Chris Goulin, is one of the five finalists and could use some votes to help him win the competition.  Even if you don't feel like voting, check out the videos from these amazing people.  You won't have to look any further for inspiration!

Creative Fund Raising Ideas

For anyone who is interested in raising money to build schools or for any other worthy causes, this video provides a great, painless way to do it.  With so many organizations competing for limited resources, some creative ideas are required to draw attention to YOUR project.  There are some great ideas here. 

If anyone is interested in trying some of them for our project to help young women in Tanzania start small businesses, I would be happy to discuss them with you.
