It Was Amazing!

While I was in New York I got to see a lot of things. Did you know that Toys R Us has a 60-foot Ferris wheel inside and a huge Barbie House and a 40-foot dinosaur? It was soo cool!!

I also saw the Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty and Time Square and a bunch of famous restaurants. I also met this wonderful manicurist named Jackie Saulsbery, she did mine and Jamie’s nails in Purple!

I want to say “Thank You” to the Anita Kaufmann Foundation and Debbie Joseph’s for flying me to New York. I had a lot of fun. I also want to thank everyone who came to the party. It was nice meeting everyone.

Other things I have done for Purple Day this year are, I made a PSA for the radio and a PSA for TV, you can see them on our website (

I was also on Breakfast television. I have done a lot of other interviews too and Moose FM in Ontario is doing a story on me.

A new friend Aaron, is also doing a mini documentary of me and Purple Day. You can see all kinds of things that are going on at our website.
