The Community Service Centre at The Multi National Fair

October 22, 2014

So happy to finally be able to share a recent project I've been working on! I'm the Centre Coordinator for The Community Service Centre a the upcoming The Multi National Fair

This Centre will be split into two parts: 

(1) The Social Centre will be a centre with kiosks showcasing non profits, charities, social initiatives and NGOs in Barbados, aimed at raising awareness on the organizations' activities and current volunteer opportunities 

(2) a Volunteer Matching Service called 'Helping Hands' aimed at matching Barbadians who are looking to lend their time or skills or resources to a cause with a database of 'needs' that we are currently compiling. We want to shake up the traditional understanding of 'volunteering' and show people that you can help people in many ways, through your skill set and/or any amount of free time you are willing to dedicate to something you care about. 

Interested in volunteering or telling me about a non profit or social initiative that can benefit from being a part of the Centre?

The Multi National Fair is BACK!

October 3, 2014

Most of you over the age of 20 will remember the Multi National Fair held at the Governor General's house wayyyy back when. Most of us remember it for the international food, and guys reminisce about the wide selection of international beers. Well, I'm so happy to share that after 10 years The Fair is back! (and so is the international food and beer ;)) The team has been working behind the scenes for months and it's so cool to finally see The Multi National Fair make it's comeback public! It's going to be everything we remember and so much MORE! Stop by the official page and see what it's all about....#TheMultiNationalFair #Barbados

Island Sitters turns 1!

October 1, 2014

Exactly one year ago, Sheena and I made our little sitter service an official business...and with the help of a pretty intense entrepreneurship competition and team of amazing friends, family and sitters, we found ourselves running a full time gig. 

I have a million things on our 'to do' list, with 'write an in depth blog post reflecting on the past year' high on that list. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to do that properly right now but I just couldn't let this day go by without writing SOMETHING that reflects how I feel about our baby's first birthday. WE wouldn't have made it this far without everyone who has helped and guided us along the way and our fantastic team of sitters. They've handled some crazy/last minute/outrageous requests with grace and professionalism, and go above and beyond for clients. THANK YOU ladies, for everything you do. We really appreciate it! Big up to my biffle Sheena, who is the most amazing business partner a girl can ask for; I'm so grateful for having her by my side this past year.

Cheers to our first year, here's looking forward to what the next one brings! :)
