There Are Those With Opinions....

For years fur has been one of the most controversial parts of the fashion industry. In fact, it wasn't long ago that anyone who wore fur was seen as inhumane. The "I'd rather go nude then wear fur" campaign from PETA was the root of this observation. The campaign featured fashion icons such as Christy Turlington and Pamela Anderson  to name a few, naked in an advertisement for animal rights. People would do anything to protect animals, but now a days fur is creeping back into society. Fur trimmed mittens, coats hats and in particular mukluks are everywhere, including our school...

I surveyed my friends asking their opinions on fur trimmed clothing....while "offensive" and "mean" were commonly used words others look at fur as "a fashion statement" or "a trendy touch". Words are words, the real way to tell if people are pro or anti fur, is whether they are wearing it or not....

What's your opinions on fur?

Girls Like You....

Girls Like You...
Meet 2 incredible girls who know helping others is what is best!

All over the world there are thousands of girls doing thousands of good deeds, just like you. It does not take a lot of effort to donate some time to your community and make a difference. Two girls who live by that prerogative are Violet. C and Mackenzie. O. The two know what making a difference really means and they do everything in their power to do so…

Violet C.
Shelter Helper

Violet C. a 13-year-old girl decided it was time to get up and make a difference. Violet wrote to us from Toronto saying she hated seeing homeless people in her streets. “I feel badly for them. When I go shopping with my friends I bring a lot of money and may buy something silly or worthless that I don’t even need, while they are begging for just a meal” She continued to say that about 2 weeks after that thought hit her she did some research. “I learned that there are organizations that help these poor people and my mom took me to one so I could.”

Now it is two years latter and Violet has helped to get over 100 homeless people indoors and with food. Violet feels good about what she is doing because she knows she is making a difference. Violet told us that you are never too old or too young to do the right thing. Violet C. is taking action in her community and hopes more kids like her can start doing the right thing. 

Mackenzie O.
Elder Buddy

Mackenzie O. of Saskatchewan has always been interested in donating time to others. “Even at a young age I wanted to help out” Now at age 10 Mackenzie works weekly at an elders home “I don’t have any family there but, a while ago when I went to visit my friends granny I learned that a lot of the elders don’t get many visits” I felt so bad I knew I had to do something. She inquired about helping out at the home and the owner quickly agreed.

Elder Buddy is a program that Mackenzie started herself after a few months of working at the home. She explained to us how the program worked “Kids, teens and adults sign up to participate in the program.” They become a caretaker for a few hours each month of their selected buddy. It is the responsibility of the caretaker to take out their buddy on excursion day. The excursion could be a walk or a theater show. It just need’s to be something they can enjoy.  Mackenzie says the elder’s love it and so do we.

I hope Violet and Mackenzie’s stories have inspired you to get up and start making a difference. Remember it does not take much to make a difference so get out in your community today and start changing the world!

Flaunt It School Rules

Flaunt it: At School

A new school year is just around the corner and whether you’re off to a new one or back to the old one we have 2 HUGE rules for you to remember…

Rule #1 Go Brave
Make the 1st few months at school really count. Reach out to friends both old and new. Don’t be shy when you see someone new. Flash a smile. Actions speak louder than words…… so little deeds that catch the person’s eye will let them know you’re a friendly person!

Flaunt It Tip: 
[If you see a new student walking through the halls, try to strike up a conversation with them. Compliments are a great conversation-starter!]

Rule #2: Bring It

Teams, clubs, committees, organizations…. your school is filled with them. So, seize the opportunity and go for it!
The next time you have the chance to get involved, don’t hang back…. You will meet new people and learn skills like: discipline, time management and motivation. Best of all, you will have fun!

Flaunt it Tip:
[Don’t let your nerves get in the way!]

So, this school year get out there! Every one is a little nervous at the start of the school year, and every one loves a person who is brave enough to walk up to them and say "hi". This year be that person! Be your best you yet! Make this school year your very best! Just remember, to have fun...and of course to flaunt it!
