Little Voice had a great week at Parks Canada for the GCWCC Book Sale!
After 3 days of sharing our story with public servants in the area, Little Voice was able to donate $91 back into the Campaign and in support of the Alzheimer Society of Canada!
A BIG thank you to all those who supported this cause by purchasing a copy of our book and donating to our Alzheimer Society of Canada Donation Jar!
Like many entrepreneurs, Little Voice’s author and illustrator both work full time while pursuing their dream of sharing their story and message!
“Sometimes it’s hard when all you want to do is come home and take a nap but know you have a million other things that need your attention. Our little voices definitely help keep us motivated in achieving our dreams; though we work day and night to achieve our success, we wouldn’t have it any other way! The moment we see someone post our book or send us a message about how inspired they were is the moment we realize all our hard work has been worth it! We eventually become more determined and inspired to keep on working so that we may continue to share our message with others!” – Amanda Bernardo, Author
On top of running the Little Voice’s publication AND their day jobs, Amanda and Samantha also make sure to give back to their communities!
“We volunteer as often as we can, whether it be by promoting local causes or organizations, volunteering, raising awareness or simply making donations; giving back to our community is at the forefront of Little Voice.” – Samantha Clusiau-Lawlor, Illustrator
Amanda and Samantha developed the Little Voice Forget Me Not Project to raise awareness and funds in support of the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County. They also give back through their #30BooksFundraiser and by volunteering their time at local schools and organizations!
It was only natural that their hard work ethic and passion to give back led them to work with this year’s GCWCC Campaign.
