In last week’s newsletter, I shared the news that Stittsville resident, Eva Von Jagow, was selected as one of 10 inaugural members of Canada’s L’Oréal Women of Worth.
Eva was selected from over 300 nominations for her charitable spirit and hard work raising funds for food programs in Canada’s northern territories.
Eva was a student at Sacred Heart High School when she first learned about the exorbitant cost of food in Nunavut. Demonstrating a deep philanthropic initiative, she the founded the first “All that Glam” fundraiser, collecting and reselling used jewelry and handbags to support breakfast programs in Nunavut. Over $97,800 has been raised since then. Building on this success, Eva then went on to found DueNORTH, a foundation to promote access to nutritional and affordable food to all children and youth in Canada’s North.
As a recipient of the award, L’Oreal donated $10,000 to Eva’s charitable foundation DueNORTH with the opportunity to win another $10,000 through an online voting campaign.
Now, I am happy to share that Eva has received the most votes and will now be receiving another $10,000 to put toward food programs in Canada’s North!
I would like to thank all residents who took the time to vote for her and support this fantastic initiative. Congratulations, Eva. You deserve it.
