The Emily Dahl Foundation has made its first ever contribution to The Compassionate Friends Of Canada Inc.
The Dahl family attended a luncheon and presentation where foundation co-founder and father of Emily Dahl, Sherman Dahl shared his thoughts on happiness and the goals of The Emily Dahl Foundation with The Compassionate Friends Group at Whatshan Lake Retreat Center near Lumby.
Sherman Dahl stated:
“This was not only our first official grant of $500 from The Emily Dahl Foundation, it was the first time I have spoken to a group of parents that have also experienced the loss of child. I was truly happy to be there and feel the entire afternoon created a huge amount of positive energy for us all. The Emily Dahl Foundation is just getting started. The foundation has a strong financial position and continues to receive contributions from all over the world. The Emily Dahl Foundation looks forward to helping fund other worthwhile charitable organizations that have the goal of helping others. The Emily Dahl Foundations goal is to make everyone come in touch with the reality that all along there has been something tremendous within you, and you did not know it.”
