6 word memoir.

“Possibilities are endless… why lose hope?!” I chose these 6 words thinking of all of the recent events that I have encountered; and of all of the people who never lost faith in me and my decisions. I have always had strong thoughts and opinions about the world around us, and what could possibly be in it. My brother and I grew up thinking, “why do people have to be so unfair?” So starting around two years ago, my mother, Wyatt and I, took that thought to the next level. Creating an organization where we believe that “No one should look down on others, unless you're there to help them back up.” So I guess I would like to conclude by saying: You should never give up on your hopes and dreams, by considering your life as an unpredictable journey.

Christmas, Donors and other things.

Hey! So.... its Christmas!! And... Well... So much for my last goal... Sorry. But anyways, I would like to start off by thanking everyone who has been supporting us and this organization for all of these years.  Wyatt's school, Queen Alexandra Middle School, has recently held a bake sale to raise funds for KIDS CANADA and successfully made $208!! So a special thanks to our 2014 grade 6 classes and their amazing teachers, Ms Kady Rose and Ms Ola Danyliuk who organized the day!!!   My mom is currently in Uganda for 8 weeks -actually, she just came back last week!   

That being said, I would like to announce that we are about to launch a new business line. Lemon shea butter cream. We are selling 60ml for $10, or Shea Butter lip balms, 4$ each or 3 for $10. donating 10% of our profits to kids Canada. Our new creams are 100% natural and organic, with our special touch of essential oils. Our shea butter is produced in Uganda and supports a community in Lira. So be the first one to try it! 

Just to get you guys up to date on what has been going on, we have bought 1 acre of land in Bombo, Uganda. With the help of Karim Wissanji, who is helping us design the lay out of the land, Cigdem Coskun and Toronto Seed Library who helped us a LOT, by donating seeds to our current project of building gardens. Thanks again to Queen Alexandra Middle School for raising funds to help us purchase tools for gardening and building. We are now on our way to building our Uganda Kids Canada Centre!

So i would like to conclude this some what informative post, by saying Happy holidays! I hope you all have an Amazing break, spending time with all of the people you love! I know i will :)

I've just been cramped with Sooooooooooooo much homework and have been super busy lately. like, in my English class we were assigned to have a speech, Prezi/PowerPoint and an essay ready in a week. it may sound easy, but trust me it's NOT! But anyways i don't want to bore you with all of the homework i have... So anyways, back to the point... I hope people are still reading my blog, and again i am SO sorry for not posting anything for like 8 months... but it's really late now. And my dad is going to get really mad at me if finds out that I'm not asleep... so anyways i just wanted to say a few thing and get you guys all updated on my very, well... Interesting life. And so ya, I'll continue on this topic tomorrow morning. So bye for now!
-lots of love from me myself and I, AKA Kaia!
Good Night Canada!!!

As we all know, changing schools can be very hard for some people and very exciting to others... But I guess I was all worried about nothing because middle school is a piece of cake. So here's my advice, as long as u work hard and stay focused, DON'T worry you'll be just fine. Plus its always helpful to have a trust worthy friend by ur side to help each other make it through. And absolutely make sure that you r organized and perhaps maybe use something like an agenda to write down every thing u need. At first during grade 5 and 6 I always thought why the heck would you ever need to use an agenda? But now that i have way more classes than just one i learned that it really helps. And now I am super glad that my grade 6 teacher at Withrow pushed us all really hard to be organized and now i know that it has really payed off...

OMG, yesterday was the last day of school and it was so sad. i didn't think that i was going to cry since I'm happy to leave the school, but i then realized, that its not going to be the school i miss, but all of the great people that i grew up with. All of my teachers, the grade 5's who are now going to be in grade 6 and take over the role we played at the school. this summer I'm going to earl grey and start my first year of middle school being in grade 7. and I'm not sure if i should be  excited or scared. so i just hope that every thing will be alright for this September.

   A quick shout out to Wyatt and his friends at Dundas Junior public school for helping us so much by raising lots of money through their penny drive. Together with the money raised by the children in Uganda themselves, we were able to buy 4 Tiva biosand water filtration systems.

 So about those new friends i was talking about who are from
NEMA Children's Choir-Uganda
who came to Canada. Wow that could be used for a tongue twister. Anyways, we went over to the place that they were staying at and I taught them how to make our special signature flower rings so that they would be able to make some money by selling them while they are here and when they are back in Uganda. I also made marshmallow balls (squares) with them which they loved. Thanks Peter's No Frills for your generous donation. We also took them to Centre Island and we all had the best time. I feel like this organization, (
KIDS CANADA ) is going to be a huge success because of all of the wonderful people who are helping us out.

Nema Kids and Kids Canada at Toronto Centre Island

Thanks Denise Lo for the Pizza and for coming out with us!

 kick starting a micro business with our friends. The funds raised from selling the flower rings will help support their orphanage in Uganda 

 We loved the music and the singing we were surprised with

Talk about starting new things, I forgot to mention that a couple of months ago (I think), I took a 7 hour st. john ambulance babysitting course. The  course was so long and they crammed a test in at the end of the day. But it was worth it since I PASSED!!!!! I got my babysitting certificate, so now am able to babysit! Oh Ya!!... now I remember; i took the course in January!

Uganda is awesome

Hey you guys!!!!!!
I realized that i haven't been posting anything for a while. And I also realized, that some one from Pakistan saw my blog! so thank you to who ever that person was! And I definitely mean it.


Last Thursday, Wyatt and I got to hang out with 17 kids from Uganda, at Center island!!! It was SO much fun.
And here's the best part, at the end of the day, they had all said that it was the best day of their lives. Which truly made my year! Hope you have a great day! Bye.
