Remember a month ago when you bought Cupcakes from Alex’s Creations
for Suga’s Birthday with proceeds towards young Rajé Josephs fighting Cancer (Hodgkin’s Lymphoma)?

On Friday, July 10, 2020, Alex’s Creations handed over their 2nd Mariposa Fundraiser Donation of $180,000JMD to Rajé Josephs’ family!

On behalf of Rajé, his parents, Dr. Reese and her awesome team at the University Hospital of the West Indies and the fantastic team of Alex’s Creations, a big, THANK YOU Suga Bears! Because of you, Rajé’s hope has been ignited. Together, we can defeat childhood cancers!

#tbt to the AWARD-WINNING ‘Hands in Art’ Art-tivity Project with Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston!

#tbt to the AWARD-WINNING ‘Hands in Art’ Art-tivity Project with Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston!

Earlier this year in February 2020, ‘Hands In Art’ was a Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston (Ig: @nkrcjamaica) Arts and Entrepreneurship Initiative with Lister Mair/Gilby High for the Deaf. The Project also had the support of e-Learning Jamaica Ltd. (Ig: @elearningja).

‘Impact Through Unity’ was Rotaract’s theme for the year, which inspired the majority of the Art pieces the kids were guided to create.

All proceeds from their sales and part proceeds of GW Art sales at Suga Lifestyle’s V-Day Pop Up Shop in February went towards the students’ educational resources and the school’s infrastructure. There is still a need for more funding, for instance, to supply classrooms with fans that are currently without.

Congrats to Rotaract Club of New Kingston for being recognized by Rotaract District 7020 for this meaningful project, placing 1st amongst different Carribean territories! 👏🏾🏆#SugaSnaps

I am grateful we were able to complete this project together before COVID-19.

Immediate Past President, Alex Robinson, recently handed over a Digital Thermometer to the Principal of Lister Mair/Gilby High for the Deaf, which they needed to proceed with their CSEC Exams.

Rotaract Club of New Kingston’s work continues with Lister Mair, as they also handed over 30 Face shields. Communication is mainly through lip-reading in the Deaf community, so it is important for them, especially the teachers, to use face shields instead of masks.

Today is the Day! Suga’s Birthday!

‘It a keep!’

I am truly blessed to have my Birthday fall on June 10th, when businesses are reopening, persons are heading back to work and well basically, the country is reopening. I find joy in spreading positive vibes and even though some of us including myself may feel naturally nervous about what the future will hold, we are ALL moving forward during and after Covid-19.

Stay tuned to SUGA, yes that’s the good ‘Suga’ with no ‘r’, as I continue to embrace and PROMOTE local and small businesses with love. My 2020 GW Art Collection is ongoing! Thanks to all who have supported GW Art from the very beginning and especially during Covid 19. Looking forward to new support too, as GW Art is for everyone!

During Love In The Time Of Corona continues as I ENTERTAIN you with my Restaurant Reviews and other Culinary outings and experiences.

I truly feel a huge void without the NBA Finals on my Birthday, but I look forward to its return with other Sports and entertaining you with commentary and updates for them too.

As a Certified Personal Trainer & Sports Nutritionist, I practice what I preach and I am pleased and proud to announce that I hit my ‘Dirty 30’ weight, also my Wedding Day weight once again!💪🏾 I am just a phone call away to EDUCATE.

Celebrate with Me!

Most importantly, please remember the Charity Fundraiser, Mariposa, that I am supporting for my Birthday to fight Childhood Cancer!  I am thankful to everyone I have INSPIRED to purchase Cupcakes and Donate to help save Rajé. Here are the details if you would like to participate or donate any day this week until Friday!

JOIN SUGA AND AID ALEX’S CREATIONS’ 2nd ANNUAL CUPCAKE FUNDRAISER TO FIGHT CHILDHOOD CANCER

20200608_132105_0000

Young, 9 year old, Rajé Josephs is currently fighting Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He was diagnosed at the age of 8.

What’s the difference between Hodgkin’s and Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma? 

NonHodgkin lymphoma may originate anywhere in the body, whereas Hodgkin lymphoma usually starts in the upper body, for instance in the neck, chest or armpits. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is often diagnosed at an early stage and is thus considered one of the most treatable cancers.

Rajé is described by his mom, Vanessa Morgan as very spirited and exceptionally bright, being ranked 15th in the Spelling Bee Championship of 2017. His ambition is to become a Medical Doctor.

Rajé is currently undergoing medical treatment at the University Hospital of the West Indies and is en route to start radiation treatment today. Our prayers are with him.

Alex’s Creations, Suga’s best Cupcake Artisan, will be offering a special of $1200JM for a box of 4 of their scrumptious Cupcakes this week until Friday, June 12th from 11am to 4pm. Part proceeds will be in aid of Cancer Treatment for Rajé.

20200609_062101_0000

Kudos to Baker and Owner of Alex’s Creations, Sophia Harris for taking on this initiative once again. #SugaSnaps

Please support ‘Mariposa’ and purchase cupcakes. You will help to save a life. Rajé, his family, Alex’s Creations and Suga will be extremely grateful.

XoXo,
Suga 💖

As we begin to think of going back to the office to work, going outside or how long we will need to wear masks, please remember those that aren’t able to source their own masks. A good deed no matter how small, goes a far way.
