It all started with a little inspiration....
When I was 5 years-old, my mom returned home after a meeting with a book called "It Takes a Child" by Craig Kielburger - the co-founder of WE Charity (formerly known as Free the Children). I read the book that afternoon and declared that I want to have a bake sale to help kids around the world. A few months later - in the month of September - right after we all returned to school, I held my first bake sale in front of my house with the help of my neighbours and family. I baked yummy chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, mini cakes and more. Within three hours, we raised thousands of dollars. With WE Charity staff on hand the whole time, I was so proud of what we had accomplished. From that moment, I declared:
"I WANT TO BUILD A SCHOOL FOR EVERY YEAR I'M IN SCHOOL!"
A few years ago, I was awarded the Girl Greatness Award for Making a Difference from Girl Guide of Canada for my efforts!
Here we are, 10 years later, I'm now 15 years-old, and I have helped contribute to 4 schools in Kenya (1 through the Change Heros initiative), 2 in Haiti, 2 in India, 1 in Rural China and 1 in Nicaragua.
This year, I am planning something BIG! A one year campaign! It's my TENTH anniversary. I am going into grade TEN so, I want to raise money to build TEN schools through the We Bake For Change initiative.
You can either come to my bake sale or donate online. If you are a large corporation, you can help build a school or two outright.
Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my website. Let's bake a difference together!
