I picked up a substantial cheque from KW Cares today. Kw cares is a committee of Keller Williams Ottawa Realty that attends to matters of social awareness. This is the first time I’ve appealed to the committee for funding and I’m pleased they came through. The cheque is for Cornerstone Women’s shelter in Ottawa. I’m happy to fund raise for the shelter. Initially the idea was to raise $5000 representing 5000 nautical miles I flew in the International Air Rally last August. There is something about the women’s shelter that echoes back to when I was a youngster living in Cardinal Heights Ottawa. My mother was a single mom and raising two children basically on her own income. As a fashion model her income was seasonal. Spring was for fur coats and fall was bathing suits. We always had trouble with rent. I’m pleased to give back to the community and to women in particuliar.
