Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 6, 2006
Jennifer Carroll, LifePilot navigator, author and creator of Bigsbee, volunteered her time to enlighten children ages 8-10 on July 14th at the one-hour “Bigsbee’s BootCamp Canada” launch at the Fraserview Boys’ and Girls’ Club. With storytelling, reading, and sharing with each other through interactive games and exercises, the kids had fun while learning essential life skills. “The BootCamp explores all learning styles: visual, auditory and kinesthetic,” says Carroll.
Bigsbee’s BootCamp and book, Bigsbee's Unbee-lievable Journey to Fly, ignite children’s imagination to not only recognize their unique abilities and values but to look at the importance of a great attitude, action steps, perseverance, focus, and seeing past the FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt, i.e., bullies) to the opportunities and dreams of life. This LifePilot program builds character and confidence, instills fundamental values, and teaches children to look to their values for guidance as they come upon various challenges in life.
“Adopting our values-focused LifeManual lessons for children creates real meaning and significance in my life”, says LifePilot founder Peter H. Thomas, who has worldwide experience helping adults from all walks of life discover their values and how to align these with daily goals through the LifePilot Workshop and LifeManual. “We’ll bring Bigsbee to children at elementary schools across the country and continue our current initiatives in the US as well.”
Bigsbee, http://www.bigsbee.com, is a cool little bumblebee with huge ambitions. He has high hopes of becoming the first flying bumblebee ever! We all know that bumblebees are not designed to fly. Their wings are too small to lift their fuzzy, heavy bodies off the ground. Enter Bigsbee Honeywill - an ordinary bee with an extraordinary dream to fly. Through his adventures and misadventures, Bigsbee turns the impossible into endless possibilities. No matter what difficulties are thrust upon him by life, his values guide him along the way.
Bigsbee himself attends every BootCamp with Carroll to inspire the children to: BEE-gin with a dream, BEE-lieve in yourself, BEE-long to a great group, so you can BEE-come all You can BEE!
Founded by Century 21 Real-Estate entrepreneur and Four Seasons hotel developer Peter H. Thomas, LifePilot is an international, values based organization structured as a not-for-profit from inception. Net proceeds from LifePilot programs are allocated towards community and charitable programs with any year-end net earnings distributed to charities via the Thomas Foundation (Canada) and the Todd Thomas Foundation (USA). The concept of LifePilot was inspired by the tragedy of Thomas' son Todd, who committed suicide at age 36 due to mental health disorders. http://www.lifepilot.org
