This weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Dream Fund’s Wing’s for an Angel Butterfly Release in Marystown!
Wings for an Angel is a province-wide butterfly release, hosted by The Dream Fund that gives you the opportunity to release a butterfly in honour of someone who has made an impact on your life, living or deceased. I have been working with this organization for the past two years selling butterflies for the event and it has been extremely rewarding!
The Dream Fund is an organization that helps to make dreams come through for sick children in Newfoundland and Labrador and they are able to do this through funds raised through the butterfly release! This year 1700 butterflies were sold in the province, making it possible for almost four dreams to come true!
The event started off with local musicians, face painting and a barbeque, fun was had by all! At 5:45 all the butterflies were released at all 8 sites across the province. It was such a lovely event to take part in, I thoroughly enjoyed being able to remember my loved ones in such a special way while basking in the beauty of hundreds of painted lady butterflies!
I had such a wonderful day at this event and cannot wait to return next year!
