For those of you unfamiliar with the Junior League, it’s basically a hoity-toity group of women who disguise their social climbing behind a mask of “volunteerism”. It’s essentially where former sorority girls go to die. At least in Houston it is. Just to give some perspective, the Toronto League currently has 88 active members not including the 15 who started today. The Houston League currently has 5,000 active members. You do the math. The Toronto League, unlike the Houston League, though, actually attempts to give back to the community (ok, not totally true, but sort of). It doesn’t care if you’re black, white, brown, big, small, young or old…it just cares that you care. And I care.
Needless to say, I’m excited and am blowing my own little horn about the possibilities that our “little engine” just might achieve. Blaaaaaat!
