SOOOO excited to announce our big Play It Forward $10,000 drawn leader from William McDonald Middle School in Yellowknife, grade 8 student, Miss Lauren Seabrook! We are so proud of Lauren’s incredible efforts- what an ambassador of what play it forward means. The work that she does in her community and beyond is inspiring and we hope this serves as a boost to help further her dreams to reach out to people and make a difference. And we are SO grateful to Canadian North for bringing Lauren and her mom to our wrap up show this past weekend. What an awesome surprise and special addition to the evening.

Lauren has decided to allocate $5,000 of the donation between the North West Territories’ SPCA, Sleeping Children Around the World and the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta. The remaining $5,000 will go towards bringing in inspirational Me To We speaker Spencer West to Ecole William McDonald Middle School. She is also looking to set up a Seabrook Play It Forward award, which would encompass Play it Forward’s inspirational teachings and be presented annually to a student who demonstrates great leadership.

Sending out a huge congratulations to ALL of the Play it Forward leaders that we met. You guys inspire me so much and keep up the great work.
