In this episode, we speak with Melissa and Malgosia (on location) who organized a fantastic FASD Day celebration in the park on Sunday. Melissa, a parent, saw that there wasn't anything currently planned for FASD Day in her community and wanted to create an opportunity for people to get together and not only learn and raise awareness, but also to celebrate those with FASD. She contacted the local Key Workers in the Fraser Valley and together they created a fantastic community event.
Our second guest features POPFASD District Partner, Cori Christensen (SD 23), who along with FASD Awareness Committee organized a fun-filled family and community celebration in Kelowna to raise awareness of FASD. The FASD Awareness Committee is made up of families, supporters and community agencies including: ARC Programs, John Howard Society, Claro Family, Spec-Team Assessment Society, School District 23, MCFD and Interior Health.
