Rescuing Animals takes a lot of time, patience and research. You have to be committed to find the right shelter or rescue centre to care for them properly, but sometimes it takes days or weeks to find the right place so you need to be prepared to care for the animal safely and properly until a permanent space comes available. Deanne McCallum has spent her whole life saving, caring for and finding proper sanctuaries for injured and abandoned animals.
I had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Shawn Zerback of the Samsara Saints Riding Club and Dr. Liz Saul, Chair of the Board of COPE Service Dogs to discuss the incredible new initiative called Moto Synergy 2020 created by the Samara Saints RC to raise funds for this worthy cause. #MOTOSYNERGY2020 was set to be the Largest Automotive Extravaganza EVER to be held in Simcoe County! It would have been, and may still be (in 2021), a truly Innovative Automotive Experience, fit for the whole family. At its heart, #MOTOSYNERGY2020 was to be a charitable initiative for COPE Service Dogs created by a group of innovative and iconic men called the Samsara Saints. As with every person, business, organization or event, the introduction of Covid-19 made it impossible for #MOTOSYNERGY2020 to continue as planned. If #MOTOSYNERGY2020 is to continue at all, changes needed to be made. Go to www.MOTOSYNERGY.com to register or sponsor this wonderful event. Thank you to Shawn and Liz for taking the time to meet with me. Kindness Is Sexy and so are all those involved in this great event!! ❤️❤️ As always, I want to thank Joao Carlos Silva and JCS Productions for creating and producing the KIS - Kindness Is Sexy jingle. ❤️❤️
During COVID19 there are some people who are willing to get out there and give back to those who are struggling. Dennis Cartwright Jr. and Bruce Brethour decided to do what they can to raise funds for the Barrie Food Bank with a Boot Drive at the Tim Hortons/Petro Canada in Thornton, ON. They will be stationed there from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, May 16th, 2020 to take monetary and food donations to help keep the food bank full through this entire pandemic. We did our best to social distance during this interview, which was a difficult task because we had to contend with the outside noises of cars, bikes and other outside noises ... but we wanted to get the word out for this great initiative. Please show YOUR Sexy Side and take the time to stop by the Tim Hortons/Petro Canada plaza in Thornton, ON on Saturday, May 16th (10am-4pm) to support those in need. I would like to thank Dennis and Bruce for taking the time to speak with me and to remind people that Kindness Is Sexy. As always, a Huge Thank You to Joao Carlos Silva and JCS Productions for creating the KIS jingle and for helping Santa deliver gifts each year.
Many people who know me know that I have been dealing with concussion issues over the past few months, which caused me to have some challenges with regard to headaches, concentration and focus. I wasn't sure when I would get back to doing my videos and I have a couple of interviews from 2019 that I still have put together, but I wanted to start 2020 with this fun interview with Santa Claus. Santa spends each year visiting Nursing Homes to bring joy and gifts to Seniors thanks to a program called "Sponsor a Senior for Christmas". I think this is a great way to start the new year and a new decade!! I would also like to encourage anyone who has time on their hands to visit a senior who doesn't have family or friends and needs company. Sometimes all it takes is 1 hour two or three times a week just to give them someone to talk to or someone to read a story to them. Please give the gift of you time to someone you feel could use it. Thank you Santa (Steve Madeley) for all that you do during the Christmas season and all year long!! Thank you to Fernanda Silva and @Nevia M. Da Silva for starting the "Sponsor a Senior for Christmas" program and for bring so much happiness to so many seniors. As always, a Huge Thank You to Joao Carlos Silva and JCS Productions for creating the KIS jingle and for helping Santa deliver gifts each year. Thanks to all Santa's elves ... your time and presence is invaluable!!

There are times when you find yourself drawn to people simply because they are kind and genuine and the ladies that I Interviewed during this episode of KIS - Kindness Is Sexy are exactly those kinds of people. America and Regina (AmericaRegina Martinez-Vilchez) work hard to bring strength and calm to those around them. They give back to their local animal shelter and promote kindness every day by educating the customers of their business at the Divine Sisters Metaphysical Store. I enjoyed every second of our chat today and I hope you all have a change to check out their store in Uxbridge, ON. As always, Huge Thank You to Joao Carlos Silva and JCS Productions for creating and producing the KIS jingle 😁
Some people come into your life and there is an instant connection. Leeann Pendleton is one of those people for me. We connected right away because of her sweet demeanour and extremely kind heart. Leeann is one of the Hosts of “Viewpoint” on RogersTV Barrie and together with Ron Ptasiuk they bring important community issues to residents of Simcoe County and beyond. https://www.rogerstv.com/show?lid=12&rid=23&sid=6731 I’m thankful to have had the chance to sit down and talk to Leeann about why these shows are important and how we can promote goodness in our communities. Life throws so much at us ... why not throw love and kindness back? As always, Huge Thank You to Joao Carlos Silva and JCS Productions for creating and producing the KIS jingle 😁
I am always drawn to people who believe that Giving Back to their community is important and Lindsay Weiss and Cicco of Cicco's Ristorante are definitely those kind of people. It was a true pleasure interviewing Lindsay and discussing the many ways that they support the communities they do business in. Stop by one of their locations, either in Barrie or Minesing to enjoy their authentic Italian cuisine and tell them KIS sent you. 💋 Always Thankful to Joao Carlos Silva and JCS Productions for producing the KIS Jingle ❤️
There are people in our communities who give back on a regular basis but are so deeply humble that it inspires you and draws you into their kindness and generosity. Don Wright, owner of Running Rabbit Productions and long time local reporter is one of those people. I enjoyed every second of our interview and all the in-between conversations. While it always came back to Don insisting that he doesn’t do anything more than the average person, I happen to know that is completely incorrect. I’m thankful to have such a kind man to call my friend and I hope his words inspire others to do good just because they want to make others happy!! ❤️❤️ Please feel free to contact Don at Running Rabbit Productions (email@example.com) for any of your Video/TV Production needs 😁 As always thank you to Joao Carlos Silva of JCS Productions for creating and producing the KIS Jingle ❤️
When thinking about how blessed I am to have so many Amazingly Kind people in my life, I can’t help but be thankful for JC (Joao Carlos Silva) and his family and friends. JC is a singer, song writer and producer who has a passion for helping others and the backing of his incredible family and friends to make some remarkable things happen. He has an amazing Musical Group called “Luso Fado Group” that wants to share the Portuguese Fado style music with the general Canadian audience. Their music will penetrate your soul and leave you wanting more. JC gives back to his communities in so many ways and he and JCS Productions produced my “KIS” Jingle. Thank you for allowing me to interview you JC in order to highlight your kindness and showcase the hypnotic sounds of Fado. 😁
For Canada Day we wanted to interview someone who always gives back to his community, so I chose to interview my husband Steve Madeley. Steve has been giving back his whole life and that’s what helps him through hard times and makes the good times even better. After finding himself in the middle of the biggest struggle of his life he has chosen to push through it all by giving back even more than he normally does. That's the kind of person I interview ... those who give back without looking for anything in return. Thank you for allowing me to interview you and for telling others why it’s important to give to those in need. Happy Canada Day 🇨🇦 weekend everyone... Be Safe and Give Back!! Big Thanks to Joao Carlos Silva and JCS Productions for the KIS Jingle ❤️
Bikers often get a bad rap, but over the next couple of months I will be interviewing several bikers (male and female) who go above and beyond for others. Bikers like Anne, owner of Bandanas & Bling by Gypsy Hugz. Anne creates amazing bandanas and donates portions of the proceeds from many of her sales to incredible causes like "A Place Called Home" (homeless shelter), Camp Ooch (thru the Burrbilly Girls Weekend)), etc. Thank you so much Anne for going out of your comfort zone and sitting down with me to talk about the kindness that you continue to show to those in need. *As always, thank you to Joao Carlos Silva of JCS Productions for creating and producing the KIS jingle.

This has been the hardest interview for me to do. On April 15th our daughter celebrates her 20th Birthday without her long time friend who passed away due to complications from Cystic Fibrosis, so she has decided to Raise Funds for CF in her honour. Victoria Benner was one of "MY Girls" ... a precious soul who used to call me Momma #3 since she had so many of us who cared deeply for her. Saying Goodbye to such a beautiful soul has made Cassydi want to do something to help those living with the condition and possibly assist in finding a cure. Please watch this week's video and clink on this link below to DONATE to Cass's FB Fundraiser for CF. https://www.facebook.com/donate/995542210642533/ Cassydi's - FB name is Casper Lynn For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I've chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, as we lost our angel Victoria to this beast in the past year and a half, and I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate her life with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I've included information about Cystic Fibrosis Foundation below. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is committed to finding new therapies and ultimately a cure for CF. Please invite your friends to become a fan of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on Facebook, and help make “CF” stand for “Cure Found!” About CF: Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of approximately 30,000 children and adults in the United States. More than 10 million Americans are unknowing, symptom-less carriers of a defective CF gene. Huge Thank You to Joao Carlos Silva for the KIS - Kindness Is Sexy jingle
