Kinda cool right?

Founded by Award-Winning filmmaker, Mary Gerretsen (https://buff.ly/2ZMeYQH) —whose stories aim to find joy and hope even in the most tragic sides of humanity—each doc highlights people doing something they love—painting, skating, singing, cooking—as they reveal the hardest moments in their lives surrounding circumstances we don’t talk about freely, like death, homelessness, divorce, suicidal ideation, missed opportunities, destructive habits, radical politics and racism.

TTD: SN 1. EP 7: Teaser "Pat" — Losing My Religion

At the age of 82, Pat spends a lot of time reflecting on how his childhood shaped the rest of his life. On the positive side, he recalls how much he enjoyed watching his mother paint—which inspired a lifelong passion for art. On the other hand, he’ll never forget that one traumatic evening with a priest that caused him to renounce Catholicism. Only recently, in his late years, has Pat been able to regain some of his spirituality.

Please take a moment to watch, listen, and share the teaser for his episode. https://buff.ly/3mG4dsi

Mirasol

When Alanna was getting cancer treatment, she was disappointed by the poor selection of head wraps. So she founded Mirasol (which means “sunflower” in Tagalog, paying homage to her Filipina heritage) to give women brighter and more appealing head wrap options so that they feel confident in their appearance.

This week, we’re excited to feature Rethink Breast Cancer. Rethink is the young people’s breast cancer movement, with a mission to empower young people worldwide who are concerned about and affected by breast cancer through innovative education, support and advocacy. Rethink is the first ever Canadian-based charity to bring bold, relevant awareness to the 40s and under crowd; foster a new generation of young and influential breast cancer supporters worldwide; infuse sass and style into the cause; and, most importantly, respond to the unique needs of young women going through it. In 2018, Alanna modeled for a Rethink x @knixwear campaign.
