The Origin of KidsGoals.com
KidsGoals.com was the brainchild of my dearest friend Cassie Martin who spent most of her childhood traveling, and out of school. As a result of a very difficult and isolated start to life, Cassie developed a passion for helping children learn to be strong and resourceful.
Cassie and I met online in 2005 and formed a fast and extremely close friendship. This would have normally been very difficult, because she lived in the UK and I lived in Canada, but thanks in part to technology and yearly visits, we made it work. Even with the eight hour time difference, we connected on an almost daily basis. She asked me to join her in her quest and in 2006 KidsGoals.com was launched.
Tragically, my dear friend and partner in KidsGoals.com passed away suddenly in December 2010. After much contemplation – knowing full-well how difficult emotionally this would be to run KidsGoals.com without her, I decided to carry on, as I truly believe this is what she would have wanted. She is NEVER far from my thoughts ~R.I.P. Sweet Angel
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane.
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say “Goodbye”.
You were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you –
No one can ever know.
Since you’ll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hallowed place within my heart
is where you’ll always stay.
