CanBeWell concludes The Youth Self-Care Awareness Project with Choose Love Canada Day.
Reaching out to families and youth with special projects throughout 2021, they have highlighted activities, resources and programs that are available for self-care and wellbeing support. Collaborating with the Choose Love Movement, CanBeWell members and Canadian Ambassadors for the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement have come together for this fundraising special event. Hosted by Tanya Levy, this group will weave you through some fun pampering activities while sharing the Choose Love Formula: Gratitude, Compassion, Forgiveness and Courage.
A very enlightening and powerful evening, you will feel refreshed and enlightened by Jesse’s message of ‘Nurturing Healing Love’.
