It’s been a bit since I posted on my blog but I’m back! I was on my spring break this week and it was full of memories.
The weekend I got back I went to the Shake the Foundation to see lots of awesome acts and I was fortunate enough to meet Theresa Paplinskie, Miss Teen Ontario East 2015! Thanks so much to Delaney Holley, Miss Intercontinental Canada, for introducing us! I cannot wait to see you at Nationals, it will be so much fun!
The weekend after I was able to go to a wonderful fundraiser for Kaelan Carlson in Dunrobin, ON. Kaelan was diagnosed with Friedrich’s Ataxia a year ago at the age of 9. Friedrich’s Ataxia is my platform and I will be making an awareness for this cause to help find a cure. The Fundraiser was called the Dunrobin Dip and Firefighters and the owners of the Dunrobin Grocer, did a polar ice dip to raise money. There was also games of touch football and a fishing derby going on. So far they have raised just under $5000 but you are still able to donate at http://www.gofundme.com/kzlnj0 🙂 You can also go like his Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kaelan-Carlsons-Quest-for-a-Cure-for-Friedreichs-Ataxia/374657762697090?sk=timeline to follow his journey to find a cure for Friedrich’s Ataxia.
That same day I was fortunate enough to perform at Country Throughout Time that Algonquin students put on to raise money for Children’s Wish Foundation. There was a whole evening filled with music and square dancing! I sang 4 songs, Wagon Wheel, Love by Lennon and Maisy (I sang this with my younger sister), and two of my originals songs, So Long and Black & Blue! I got to meet CTV Morning’s Sarah Freemark, who I must say is so gorgeous on the inside and out and she was an amazing host!
More exciting news was two of my new songs have been released to iTunes! They are called Black & Blue and So Long by Delaney Grant so go check them out https://itun.es/ca/ga2Y5!
