My recent trip with SchoolBox
In February 2016 I embarked on a journey with Schoolbox and traveled to Nicaragua with 10 other prominent Ottawa women to help build a school for children in the city of Leon. It was an experience that changed my life and one that was emotional, exhausting and humbling.
With some amazing prizes donated personally by myself and Frank Napolitano of Mortgage Brokers Ottawa I was able to raise funds with the support of my fantastic Royal LePage Team Realty colleagues for school supplies, essentials, volunteer programs and expenses. This made a world of difference! Thank YOU!
