It's time for the newest volunteer/non-profit profile video, featuring Farmers Helping Farmers from Prince Edward Island. This organization has been around since 1979 and is 100% volunteer-based - completely impressive. Their hands-on commitment to helping farm families in Kenya is admirable, and I really love that they involve PEI's youth in the process. It was a pleasure to spend time with Farmers Helping Farmers while on my favourite island! I am excited to see them continue their journey of international philanthropy. Enjoy!!
It's hard not to have fun on the road! In addition to the volunteering, organization profiling and other project related tasks, I try to squeeze in as much exploring as possible. Below is the second travel video from the road, featuring the rest of Atlantic Canada. Be sure to check out my first volunteer video, too!
7013 KM's = Archie & I have officially completed Atlantic Canada.
Bonjour Quebec, Aurevoir New Brunswick!
P.S. You were the best, EC! I will miss your easterly ways oh-so-much and promise to return soon.
Thanks for the sunny days, salty waves, special seafood, sweet people & stunning sights!
It's 6p.m. here in Lower Bedeque, PEI. After an awesome week spent in Charlottetown volunteering with Farmers Helping Farmers, I am taking a day for r&r - which has been awesome. It has included flying a plane, watching a cow give birth, swimming in the ocean, and driving on (red) dirt roads. I LOVE THIS PROVINCE!
(Don't I say this every week?!) But really, this country is the best!
Today is Wednesday (where does the time go?!) which means it's time for another Random Act of Kindness. As you know, every week Roadtrip with Reason is doing a random act of kindness using Boom Boom cards! I picked Card #2 (blindly) out of the pouch.
"For one day, hold the door open for others every time you have the opportunity."
What a simple task! I am going to extend this one to driving as well and let people have the right of way etc......if I see anyone else on the roads?! Oh, the country life...
I am off to pick up some fresh seafood and local goodies for our feast and I pinky promise to be kind while doing it.
Go be kind, my friends!! This is the easiest one EVER! Don't forget to share it with me on Facebook, Twitter (#randomactwed), this blog or e-mail!
With lots o' love,
What is this?
Welcome! My name is Becky. I took a roadtrip across Canada, from July to November 2011. This roadtrip was a special one though, because it had reason!
