LNBF EARTH AWARD

About the Award

         

At LNBF, our mission is to empower individuals to create a sustainable world for future generations. We have created a $500 grant to recognize women who have made a significant contribution to her community. She could have established a social entrepreneurship, a charity or a creative project that benefits others (ideas like running a sustainable soup kitchen, a reforestation project or an art co-op that uses recycled materials, or like us, fabricating an ecofashion line).

        Here are some of our past winners and their stories...

        2016 - TENILLE RIECHELMANN

        With the LNBF Earth Award, she hopes to organize more charity fundraisers to benefit the community. Currently she is planning a breast cancer benefit fashion show in which all proceeds will be donated to the Medicine Hat Health Foundation.  She is most excited by the fact that her creations will not only help the environment, but also the women in her community.

                     

        2015 - ANGELA KESTHELY

         

        Today, Angela still continues to knit milk bags and send them all over the world with the help of volunteers, children from 300 Canadian schools and Canada Food for Children (CFFC). Her next quest is to send milk bags to Burkina Faso, Africa, which continues to have one of the lowest literacy rates in the world, with girls’ literacy rates much lower than boys because of preferential schooling. With the funds from the LNBF Earth Award, Angela hopes to continue the project in Haiti and expand to Burkina Faso to help the women and girls there to create their own Milk Bags businesses.

                     

        2014 - JILL DOUCETTE

          

        Jill will use the funds from our Earth Award to build a new website, that will increase awareness around how business and the environment can co-exist. It will show visitors the type of green economy we can build, and give them the encouragement and aid necessary to take action.
