Fionn MacCool’s in Red Deer was the place to be on Aug. 21, 2015! Tammy Twyne, who owns and runs PhitPhysio in town, and her beautiful daughter Madison shaved their heads in support of the Magdalene House.hair

I discovered Magdalene House in Red Deer a few months ago. They are ‘a charitable organization that provides a safe environment for the full recovery of people exploited  by Human Trafficking.’ I want to raise awareness and much needed funds to support their work locally here in Red Deer and in the province of Alberta.

One of the core values I’ve been working to instill in my children this past year has been to Do Something With What You Have. We all have talents, gifts, resources & imagination. We need to start where we are with what we hIMG_1534ave…right now!

I have a lot of hair and a prominent voice! So for me, I decided that I would use both to build a foundation of awareness for Magdalene House and inspiration to all of you to start now…start where you are with what you have. Let’s create a positive movement at home, in our city, province and country.” Tammy Twyne

We are so deeply humbled and thankful for the passion and support that Tammy and Madison have shown. If you would like to contribute to their campaign, please check out their page.
