CHILDREN'S BOOK SALES HELPING CHILDREN IN HAITI SINCE JANUARY 2010

FROM JANUARY 2010 TO JAN 2011 : 1.00 from the sale of every book sold was donated in honour of my colleague RCMP Sgt Mark Gallagher who lost his life in the earthquake in Haiti. He was personally very involved with the local orphanage in Haiti and friends and family undertook building of a new vocational school in  Haiti in his memory. Since then the canadian government stepped in with a cash infusion but every cent counted and still counts. er.   Please follow the link to read more about this wonderful effort in Mark's name. Thank you for your generosity in supporting the children of Haiti.

Special thanks goes to Grace - owner of the French Cafe in Manotick . We shared stories of how we lend our personal support to these causes and she was an insipiration and still is .

Past Events

November 2010
Guest speaker at local Riverside South 'Sparks' club meeting. What a wonderful  & fun time with so many bright little girls (all wearing pink) .

April 26, 2010
It was my honour to speak to all the kindergarten students at Steve MacLean PS about 'being an author'. The questions were wonderful. It has been a fantastic journey since this book came out in the fall. I just love seeing the kids reaction. This was the first time I read to a large group (of any age!). Hearing them giggle and seeing them smile was absolutely priceless. I'm thrilled to have had the chance.

Some of the cute questions “How do loons talk?”, “How did you get the words out of your head?”, “Why isn't the story longer, do you have more stories?”
