#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.

IMG-20200606-WA0005

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!

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!

Again, I am Thankful. Cheers to 35 and Going into Overdrive! 🥂
