Bracelets of Hope

Carrie-Anne with her Bracelets of HopeWhile in Perth, ON last August, I learned about Bracelets of Hope, an initiative to raise the money necessary to build a medical clinic for a Village of Hope in Harare, Zimbabwe — all by selling handmade bracelets. Even more impressive is that the initiative was dreamed up by a ten-year-old.

I met with Carrie-Anne Bauer and her mother, Pamela, in a park in Ottawa last August (2007) and conducted this interview. I’ve been beating myself up for not having released this interview sooner. That was before I received an update from Pamela this past Friday (April 4, 2008) . Her update inspired me to publish the interview now. I think it has more impact this way.

  • Interview with Carrie-Anne and Pamela Bauer (August 2007)
  • Update on Bracelets of Hope fundraising (April 2008)

Truly one of your best shows, and one that shows that the children of today can and are truly the hope of tomorrow. This was a very touching and moving interview.
