M.I.A. for a Good Cause
As mentioned by many of us during week three, one of the greatest challenges for a blogger is to keep up with regular entries. Suffice it to say, this past week has been a constant run around, making it difficult to sit down at a computer for more than ten minutes here and there.
These past several months, I have been coordinating a large event that reaches out to members of the Toronto community, many of whom are living on or near the streets. On Thursday evening, we finally saw the event come to life and it was a resounding success, bringing together individuals from all walks of life under one inclusive and celebratory roof!
I would like to share that I had the distinct privilege of meeting one of our active community members, Auma (Leah), who is visiting Canada from Kenya, and attended the event. When I observed Leah sitting amongst our guests, I could not help but think of how surreal it was that, only weeks ago, she was a woman at the other edge of the world who I corresponded with via my computer; now, we were sitting in one another’s presence, talking face to face.
This is the beauty of WorldPulse and the VOF Forum. An outreached hand of gratitude to all of you who make it happen each and every day.
