I would like to start off with a great big THANKS to Tasnim BhujwallaMirasol who initiated this event through the Landmark Self Expression and Leadership Project and involved Mini-Skool, as we’ve always been an avid supporter of Sick Kids. This event provided us with an opportunity to evaluate our leadership skills, to inspire and motivate members of our team, to affect change and growth of individuals, to experience a sense of community and more importantly, it allowed us to pay it forward, by giving of our time and efforts for such a worthy cause.

THANKS and much gratitude to all our sponsors, vendors and wonderful people who support Mini-Skool in various capacities, for their generosity, as we couldn’t have done it without them. The flyers, tickets, gifts for the silent auction and on line donations were amazing and more than we expected.
