I got a call from a former co-worker named Allan Hines when I re-launched my business back in September. He suggested I email his wife, Deelle, because, “she has some pretty cool stuff on the go,” he said. “She could probably use your help.”
I was hooked. I love cool stuff AND I love helping people.
As it turns out, Allan was almost right. Deelle Hines and her partner Camilla MacDonald are doing super cool stuff with their non-profit organization called Dream Candy. Their mission is to inspire youth to dream big and create a sweet life filled with passion and purpose. They do this by offering transformational programs where students practice acts of kindness, creative expression, meditation, healthy eating, exercise, and creating a positive and supportive environment.
Although simple in its practice, research from the Canadian Journal of Counselling and Psychotherapy explains mindfulness-based training is a powerful strategy to manage life stressors for youth and children. Participants from past Dream Candy programs have said they have more self-confidence, better relationships, and higher self-esteem.
It’s been my pleasure to work with Deelle and Camilla to grow their business. Dream Candy is proof that sweet dreams really do come true!
