A few weeks ago, reader Alice forwarded an e-mail with a link for International Women’s Day (March 8th). Well, as many of y’all know, my inbox is regularly a disaster… and I just opened the message this evening.
Following the link, I discovered a truly inspiration video – a FLASH MOB! performance filmed at the Toronto Eaton Centre last spring. The mob was organized by Kim MacGregor:
“Kim MacGregor launched this grassroots movement to unite and inspire 1,000,000 women around the world to recognize the amazing women in their lives – in memory of her inspirational friend Erika Heller, who lost her four-year battle with colon cancer on May 28, 2009, at 31 years old, just two weeks shy of her one-year wedding anniversary to her Prince Charming, Ryan Cornell.”
Visit Kim’s site, I Believe She’s Amazing, to join the journey and recognize amazing women and help unite 1,000,000 women globally. Simply submit the name/e-mail address of a gal who inspires you, and a note will be sent to that special woman recognizing her.
The site is also accepting donations for Look Good Feel Better, a non-profit organization that helps women undergoing cancer treatment to feel radiant and beautiful, even through a difficult time in their lives. This is to honour Erika, who was the national spokeswoman for the program.
