The Vision Mondiale Gift Catalogue comes to life at Arena Martin-Brodeur
MONTREAL, Oct. 7 /CNW/ - World Silver Medalist, five-time Canadian Ladies Champion and a 2010 Olympian, Joannie Rochette, explains why a trip to Peru with Vision Mondiale gave her a much broader understanding of the world and a different perspective on her training in preparation of the XXI Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.
Join Joannie at the Arena Martin-Brodeur where she is currently training for competition. Joannie will be accompanied by some furry friends native to Peru. They are an excellent example of the unique gift options available in the Vision Mondiale Gift Catalogue. You will learn how these gifts can help children and their families to achieve independence, and earn extra income to help provide access to things like education, better nutrition and healthcare and a more secure and hopeful future.
