An Extraordinay Day in my Life
Because I want my blog to be out of the ordinary, I write only about my extraordinary projects. This is the reason that you don’t see me blogging every day. You can find me on facebook daily, but I keep my blog to share my best experiences with you. I want you to know, when you are coming “here”, that you will read something out of the ordinary, something that will make you dream and something you’ll remember. Even if a lot of managing directors advise me to write every day on my blog, I don’t do it. Because I want to offer you quality, not quantity.
Now… this is one of those extraordinary stories that take you out from your “usual”.
You need to read this and I hope to enjoy it.
Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow says ‘Thank you’ in her own special way…
When I was asked by a friend to do a photo shot for her, I was thrilled and excited. Although, I didn’t know any details, I accepted right away. I was always wondering how she would look through my lens. (Yes Kim – now you know :)) and the words came out of my mouth without even thinking “I’m available”. The party started at 12 pm so I thought it was a kid’s birthday party or something similar… no clue what would happened.
I met her the day of the function, along with some of her friends. She was, as I expected, beautiful but more than that, she was very friendly and easy going. All her friends wore hat (it was a HAT PARTY! - in honor of one of her friends who always wanted to wear a hat! ) BUT what was it really?? Mrs. Barrow put together an amazing afternoon to say THANK YOU to her friends for helping her with her charity work and at the same time used the occassion to celebrate two of her friends – Denise & Roz’s Birthdays.
The afternoon was very hot but with such a beautiful setting, delicious food, amazing company and such great host — it was the perfect day!
I was quite impressed with all her charity work and thought i should share them with you, so here we go…
Mrs. Simplis Barrow charity work focuses on children throughout Belize. She started a foundation about 6 years ago – Lifeline Foundation. Lifeline Foundation is a charity trust geared towards raising funds to help children who are in dire need of assistance in form of feeding programs, medical needs and educational needs. Lifeline Foundation is committed to carrying out positive and impacting projects to help improve the quality of lives of our precious Belizean children. Please visit - www.lifelinebelize.com
As Global Ambassador for Special Olympics, she helps shed light on the dignity of people with intellectual disabilities and helps to build support for Special Olympics work around the world. She continues to help raise awareness, change attitudes and impact policies for these children.
She continues her work for women and children as the Spouse of the Prime Minister of Belize and Special Envoy for Women and children. She recently hosted a national Symposium on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children.
I certainly look forward to assisting her and working with her on her upcoming projects.
It was a pleasure and honour for me! Enjoy…
