Congo Classrooms for A Brighter Future

Hey everyone!

As you may or may not know I am really passionate about education and the accessibility of education for children abroad and so of course when I heard about Congo Classrooms for a Brighter Future I knew I was going to attend.

The Canadian Ape Alliance in association with Nova Music Group are presenting the fundraiser event “Congo Classrooms for a Brighter Future” TOMORROW @ Revival (783 College Street Toronto, ON)

It is a fundraiser for school construction in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Featuring Artists:

Glenn Lewis
Kardinal Offishall

And many more!

Hosted by former Canadian Idol Judge Farley Flex

Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm! Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at www.great-apes.com or at the door.

I will be there interviewing several of the artists and I hope you can make it out for this special event.

xoxo Kaycee

Woman Abuse is a widespread societal problem. It is a form of power and control. Woman abuse can take many forms. Women from all age groups, racial and ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, socio-economic classes, religions, ability levels and professions experience abuse. *all stats from pcawa.org
– 1 in 4 women will experience abuse in an intimate relationship in their lifetime
– 38% of sexually assaulted women were assaulted by their husbands, common-law partners, or boyfriends
– 21% of women abused in an intimate relationship are abused during pregnancy
– 40% of women with disabilities have been or are in an abusive relationship
– Only 26% of woman abuse incidents are reported to the police
In an average year, 78 women are killed by their husbands or partners
Costs to Society—Abuse Affects us All!
– Women who have experienced violence were three times more likely to take time off from their every day activities
– In 1995, the estimated annual health-related costs associated with violence against women were $1.5 billion
Shout out to the amazing Reesee Ziggazagga + Nebby for the heads up.

One word… CANNES

Putting the films aside for a moment, Cannes is one of the most spectacular places in the world, let alone a gem of France. Opening up to day 7, the breathtaking sights leave no words for description. My attempts… Exotic beauty and grace. I’ll let the photos do the talking. Put cursor over images for names. I’m in love!

I was soo excited to hear that her video will be out live, tonight during AMERICAN IDOL and after AMERICAN IDOL at 10:00pm on CTV and online here.

Are you excited for Girls??
