The power of family

Posted by Dawn-Ann on December 21, 2010

Every day I am so grateful for my family. The Kirkpatricks are known for their solid support of family and friends, through thick and thin, and here in our little Calgary branch we are rallying the troops again.

My beautiful niece Krista is working hard to raise some funds for a marvelous, life-changing trip she plans to take to Ghana. It is an educational trip – an opportunity for field study extraordinaire - but the learning will be much more than academic. I know from experience how travel not only broadens the mind but educates the heart.

That is why I am one of Krista’s biggest supporters in this venture and, to that end, I am helping her ramp up her fundraising effort. We have designed a page with her story on it and I would be ever so pleased if you would drop by and have a look. Even a $5 contribution could make all the difference if enough people do it.

Namaste and thank you!

    I have never been more proud to be a Kirkpatrick!! We are a family that’s completely united and we stand tall and proud with each
    other =)

    Our family motto is “I make sure” and that we definitely do, we make sure our kin is safe, we make sure when we do a job it is
    done right and right the first time. We pull together and not apart
    in times of adversity or change, you deal with one…you deal with
    all. I am so proud of all my nieces and nephews!! And I’m sorry if I don’t say that enough, you have done and will continue to do our
    family proud!! In tackling lifes events that get thrown at you you
    have all shown strength,determination and most of all you have
    done it holding your head high and proud!!!

    Thank you sis for posting this!! I love you and all that share in my
    life force =)
