Terry Brown in BC

Terry Brown in BC

Did you know that the BC Government has an education grant of $1200 for EVERY kid born in BC  in 2006 or later qualify once they turn six?

Terry Brown has brought it upon himself to get the message out there and has had 3 videos produced, along with a Facebook page to get the message noticed. He's hoping to show parents/guardians how easy it is to get a head start for their kids future education. Check out what he has to say below.

Page likes and shares are tremendously appreciated! This is a grassroots effort, and I hope the grant enrolment message gains steam and goes viral province wide. 89 days left until the first $1,200 BCTESG cutoff. Tell people, share, and let's make a difference!

Help Terry Brown get the message out there and share his info/videos and links!
Let's help our kids get ready for the future.

Forever Beautiful Real


Forever Beautiful Real

Forever Beautiful Real is a legacy page created for Dana Louise O’Dell by her three, as she liked to call us, Goddesses (Daughter Leah/ daughter in laws Chelsea & Sara). Dana had so much left unsaid in this world, and it is our goal to carry on with her work. For those who may not have had the blessing of Dana in their life, she was a mentor, life coach, writer, artist, mother, nana and badass red-haired goddess. She lost her battle with cancer, Christmas of 2016. 

Dana had a blog, website, novel, and inspirational mantra cards in the works at the time of her passing. It’s our mission to finish what she started, and get her beautiful real words out into the Universe. Dana’s Get Back Up Deck of Feisty Mantra Cards is available for purchase through our facebook page or at The Book Man. The money raised will go directly towards publishing Dana’s book, The Beautiful Real : A Navigation Manual for Dark Times.

Dana’s Goddess, Chelsea started a sister page as well called Feather and Rose Support Bags. A non-profit community service, which provides support bags and care packages for patients undergoing treatments, such as chemo, radiation and more. Just like Dana anonymously did, during her two years of chemotherapy.



This Saturday (May 5th, 2018) Forever Beautiful Real and Feather & Rose will be hosting a garage sale to raise funds to fill cancer support bags, for cancer Warriors in the community. Find us on the corner of Evans and Stevenson from 8:30 to 1:30. Refreshments provided by donation.
