I’m so excited to be able to tell you that I’ve been selected by IKEA Canada to be one of two iWitness Ambassadors for the IKEA Foundation this year in May! What this program offers is the ability to visit a project that the IKEA Foundation supports and see the amazing work that the IKEA Foundation does!
You may or may not have heard about the IKEA Foundation, but it’s a huge international independent charitable foundation. If you haven’t heard about them yet, or just want to watch a feel good video about the impact that this foundation has on the world take a peek at this.
I’m so proud to be a part of a company that has such a strong charitable focus, and is so in line with my personal values. The IKEA Foundation partners with a few major organizations to setup these iWitness Trips, and I’m very very excited to be a part of this. I’ll be able to announce in the next few days where I’m going, right now we’re just waiting for final sign off.
Before, during and after the trip I’ll be blogging both here and on the IKEA Foundation website (http://www.ikeafoundation.org), and I’m working on coming up with some creative and interesting ways to bring the experience home. Of course, pictures, videos and all that fun stuff will be a big part of my experience.
So that’s the big news! Very exciting!! Lots of prep work over the next few months, so this is not the last you’ll be hearing about this 😉 as soon as I can announce where I’m going I’ll let you know!!!
