Thank you for coming to my blog and reading my posts. I am Amanda Todd’s mom and have found that by writing my rants and raves here, it has helped me to air out my brain and thoughts of all the things that are weighing it down. Amanda’s death has affected the world and beyond. I have decided write my blog and put it out publicly. As the world knows by now, we live in Port Coquitlam BC. It is a wonderful place to live. My community has been so supportive and also so protective for me and my family. We feel so SAFE here. Unfortunately, the world is not always made of kind and empathetic people. If they were, Amanda would probably still be here with us. Instead, I have to spend each day missing her and carrying on her message of being kind to others and decreasing the bullying.
If you read my posts and want to leave a comment, I will only take happy ones. As Amanda would say, if you are a ‘hater’, there is no place for you here.
Here is her video which sparked the world – Amanda’s You Tube video (September 2012).
Here is the video of the Celebration of Life Memorial service that was held for Amanda on November 19, 2012 @ Red Robinson Theatre.
Amanda Todd Legacy and Memorial Foundation (Vancouver Foundation) – Her dream of helping kids is being carried on in the Amanda Todd Legacy, established by her family. This initiative will raise money for anti-bullying education and for support programs to help young people with mental health problems.
Remember to always ‘smother the world with kindness’!!!
