I hope you had a wonderful week! Just wanted to let you know about my fundraiser for the Children’s Wish Foundation for Miss World Canada!
My advocacy/beauty with a purpose lies in food allergy awareness as I am severely allergic to peanuts/tree nuts, oral allergy syndrome to fruit and the cold (weird right?)! Ever since the age of three when I was first diagnosed with my food allergies. Driven by my own experience I sought to bring about awareness for it but never knew how. Miss World Canada has given me the chance to actively share awareness through my reign as a beauty queen and reach out to many communities of people living with food allergies. I have collaborated with @Kiligraphy&co and #risingyouth who granted me the finances through a grant to create a series of button pins depicted the most common food allergies. All the proceeds will go towards research in oral immunotherapy (OIT for BC) and the Children’s Wish Foundation. I am hoping that these items will help spread awareness about food allergies. Currently there are 2.5 million Canadians living with food allergies and 1 in 2 Canadians know someone with a serious food allergy. If you know someone with a food allergy, or have a food allergy yourself please take a look at these pins!
