Published on: 2018/08/06 - in Releases

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Happy Soul Project’s SUPER executive squad!

On August 11th 2018, Jenn Evans, Jared Denotter, Karlee Jalbert, and Natasha Goncharenko will become superheroes in their own right as they skydive to raise money for Happy Soul Project.

Jenn is the Executive Assistant for Happy Soul Project. Jared and Karlee are the current President and Vice-President of the Queen’s Happy Soul Project Club. Natasha was the 2017/2018 Events Coordinator for Queen’s Happy Soul Project Club.

All titles aside, they are four individuals who are beyond passionate about Happy Soul Project, so much so that they are willing to jump out of a plane! The 4 tandem skydives will take place at approximately 12pm on August 11th at SkyDive Gan and it is everyone’s first skydive!

Happy Soul Project began as a platform for founder, Tara McCallan, to share her journey when her daughter Pip was born with Down syndrome. What began as a blog has grown into a multidimensional organization which provides support and encouragement to individuals with disabilities, terminal illnesses, and vast differences by advocating for inclusivity.

Through many initiatives, Happy Soul Project reaches countless individuals in incredibly beautiful ways. Happy Soul Project sends Kick-It-Capes to kids fighting cancer, dealing with terminal illnesses or accepting a vast difference. Happy Soul Project also provides meaningful employment opportunities to adults with exceptional needs through a partnership with Grow Studios.

Additionally, every year Happy Soul Project puts out a calendar featuring children with extraordinary needs & vast differences. Not only to bring awareness, but more importantly to make each child in the calendar feel like a Rock-Star and celebrate who they are. Thousands of calendars have been put up in hospitals, clinics, offices, homes and most powerfully schools.

In order to continue growing these initiatives and many more, Happy Soul Project relies on support and donations.

Jenn, Jared, Karlee, and Natasha have a goal of raising $4000 for Happy Soul Project through this skydive! Their GoFundMe page is called “Soaring for Happy Soul Project and so far nearly $2000 has been raised, with their goal being $4000.

They are calling on friends, family, the Kingston community and of course #PipsArmy to help us to shake the world and allow Happy Soul Project to continue to soar.
