Funky Fleece: $265 Pack – Closed

We’re pretty fortunate to live in Canada, we have simple things like running water and a trust worthy roof over our head.  Unfortunately, these simple things can be luxury items for a lot of the population around the world.   Growing up in Canada, it’s really hard to imagine having to walk to a watering hole.   It’s something no one would ever be able to ever truly understand unless they walked a mile in someone else’s shoes (which is probably how far a walk to the watering hole is).

Me To We is a program that allows individuals to do just that. People embark on an adventure to go to 3rd world countries to build schools, get clean water and help children in need.  I’m sure such a program would be eye opening to anyone involved, but even more so when the candidates attending are just “kids” themselves.

Pam McIntyre, the owner of Funky Fleece, an online store based out of Winnipeg, MB  is currently donating every penny made from her online store towards the trip of a life time for her 15 year old daughter.   During the trip this summer, her daughter will be going to the Maasai Mara region of Kenya to take part in the following:

  • Help to build a school for children who may never have set foot inside a classroom.
  • Explore the local villages, learn about traditional Maasai culture and take Swahili lessons.
  • Work on a community water project, helping to provide clean, safe drinking water for children and families.
  • Participate in hands-on workshops and learn about poverty-related issues in Africa.

As you can imagine, it will be more than an eye opening event.

Funky Fleece carries all kinds of fun accessories, from beach wraps to tutus to mitten clips to wraps and even dragon tails.   I had an opportunity to review a number of items and our favourite is the bright pink beanie hat with a huge peony and jewel in the centre.   For a little girl, this hat is just perfect for the spring, it makes Princess Dressup to the next level of “dressed up”.  Princess Ballerina also really likes the tutu, it’s not overly puffy or extravagant, but great for over a pair of leggings for those days when a paid of leggings just isn’t enough.

I also received a beach wrap/dress with a coconut ring that I am extra pumped to wear, especially after my surgery – look out beach!

So, head on over to Funky Fleece, and make a purchase, or you can donate straight up to the cause.

  1. I would have loved to go on that type of trip when I was younger in school. Unfortunately, they were not offered. I did, however, get to go to Russia when I was 16. It was a school trip I will never forget.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway opportunity. ~Pauline

  2. Now I would say I would love too but way back then I probably would have said no because we didn’t know much about the world, I mean the first home computer didn’t come out til I was 25 so what can I say we were a little deprived that way!

  3. I would totally have loved to have an experience like that when I was a teenager. There is nothing quite like travel to learn first hand about other cultures.

  4. I would have liked to go as a kid or teenager, especially somewhere like central America or Haiti.

  5. We went to mexico with my church group of missionaries when I was a kid… it wasn’t that far, but it is an experience I will never forget!

  6. I sure would have liked to go on a youth action trip to a third world country but the opportunity never came when I was a teen…many ions ago LOL

  7. I would have loved to travel when I was a teenager in school. I would have definitely travelled to third world countries to learn about their ways of life and to volunteer my time.

  8. I would have LOVED to travel like this as a youth. We traveled alot all around the SOuthwestern US, but never left the country. I would have enjoyed (and still would) visiting a 3rd world country. Kenya has kind of always been on my “I’d love to go there” list! 🙂

  9. I went on a similar trip when I was 16, then again each year after that until I was 21. It is an incredible experience and I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to take advantage of it!

  10. I think visiting a third world country as a child would have been a wonderful experience and a real eye-opener!

  11. That would have been an amazing opportunity to take as a child. I would have loved it!

  12. These kind of trips can be life changing for kids. I wish I’d gotten to travel as part of my education growing up.

  13. I always wanted to travel when I was a kid and did get to do a lot in my middle years
