Carifest Calgary 2015 - What an experience! We were a bit cold and the music was having some difficulties but we made it through! We were lucky to be surrounded by family and friends while experiencing a bit of Caribbean culture in our city YYC.
It is no secret that we at Fi3rce have a love for the Caribbean music, culture and of course the food! So it should come as no surprise that part of our team will be going to Trinidad and Tobago Carnival 2016! Just writing that I got all giddy! We are so very excited to immerse ourselves in the culture just a little deeper.
In every way shape and form we are so grateful to be a part of a city that embraces cultures around the world and hosts festivals to showcase traditions. We can only hope that each year these festivals get bigger and bigger, but they need you to do your part if they are going to grow! Bring your friends, invite on social media, write blogs. Let our city grow and thrive on the very thing that makes us special... Diversity!

Thank you so much to everyone that came out to show their support for Doctors Without Borders on April 3rd. I know sometimes we support and don't know the impact that we make. I wanted to give you some statistics on doctors without borders so that you know how much your contribution means to those who don't have the healthcare that we are so lucky to have.
Did you know that for every dollar raised $0.87 goes right to the programs that doctors without borders have all over the world? That's huge! MSF (Doctors without borders) is not run by political, economic or religious decisions - intervention for a crisis is based solely on assessment of need. This again is huge and why MSF is quite often already in a place of need before an epidemic like Ebola arises.
I want to give you a few fact from doctors without borders site - In 2012, MSF medical teams carried out more than 8.3 million outpatient consultations; delivered more than 185,000 babies; treated more than 1.6 million people for malaria; treated nearly 350,000 severely and moderately malnourished children; provided some 284,000 people living with HIV/AIDS with antiretroviral therapy; conducted more than 78,000 surgeries, and vaccinated 690,000 against measles and 496,000 against meningitis.
Yes, we have a focus on Ebola currently in our fundraising but MSF is so much more, they are a line of hope, an organization of people who work hard for humankind and believing that all life is worth living.
My praise goes to all of the volunteers for MSF and my gratitude eternally for your efforts in over 70 countries.

We are honoured to announce that Fi3rce Entertainment has been asked to join a very great movement across Canada. AIM International and Doctors Without Borders have asked us to be the leader in the west to help with such a great cause I could not say no!
We all were in shock and dismay with the Ebola outbreak and the havoc it caused in Africa, Doctors Without Borders has ensured their tireless effort in seeing that they do their best in helping and we are fortunate enough to be able to now give back to them.
AIM to end Ebola started in Toronto and has made it's way to Calgary and on my doorstep, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be involved. Please check back often for more details and information on how you can also become a part of this movement!
