As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

We sold out of our bubble blowers in 2 hours!

Today we blew bubbles and sold our bubble blowers at Sapperton Day Street Festival!

The Sapperton Day Street Festival is a non-profit community event put together by the Sapperton Business Association with some help from both the McBride Sapperton Business Association and Wesgroup Properties. This year was the the events 11th consecutive year after returning from a short hiatus. Sapperton Days has been around since the early 1970’s.

This was our first year participating at Sapperton Day Street Festival where we were blowing bubbles and selling our bubble blowers! Partial proceeds of our bubble blower sales benefited the Royal Columbian Hospital for critically needed equipment, research, and innovation to ensure the best medical standards for the future.

We sold out 2 hours into the event which brought in $135 dollars to the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation! Oh, and if you left your name and number with us to get a bubble blower from our next order, partial proceeds from those sales will go to the RCH foundation too! Thank you everyone for your support!

Meanwhile, Daniel and Bryce were at the 6th Annual Vancouver Walk Now for Autism Speaks Kick Off event at Playland blowing bubbles and showing their support. However, the rain prevented them from going on any rides, so they were given one-day passes to go another day.

We’d like to thank our friends, Allie and Gilles, for helping us out today! Our booth was always busy and we couldn’t of done it without you guys! So thanks so much!

We’d also like to thank the Sapperton Day Street Festival and Sapperton community for welcoming us! We had a great time participating at this event and already looking forward to next year!

Thanks for reading,
