I had the pleasure of attending the “Ready for Life” breakfast fundraiser for the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation this morning. I am all about the full-day kindergarten now, and helping out kids in tougher situations (including newcomers to Canada) and neighbourhoods.
Back in March, Twestival helped raise money for the EPSF. Since today was the real big fundraiser (and kick-off to getting ready for next school year) all you tweeters who bought a ticket or won a silent auction item, and businesses and organization which donated an auction item, were recogznied through our EPSF-Twestival connector, Brittney Le Blanc.
You can see Brittney in a Twestival video (below) with EPSF Chair Sandra Woitas, which explains a little more about what the foundation does.
All of the placemats and centrepieces at this morning’s breakfast were designed by kids!
