Summer road trips make the best stories; it’s undeniable. So, Saskatchewan entrepreneur Amanda Perrot is coming to Swift Current and Lucky Lake as part of her seven-week Saskatchewan Sisterhood Road Trip.

 

The idea for a trek around Saskatchewan came to Perrot last fall as a way to invoke love, inspire connection and uplift women in Saskatchewan communities. (And the 4,000+ km route sort of draws a unicorn, so it’s clearly a little bit magical.)

“I’m beyond excited to visit these communities and spread goodness,” said Perrot. “I’ve already experienced so much generosity and hospitality as we planned this trip, so you know I’m stoked to visit the southwest corner of Saskatchewan and make new connections.”

This road trip is a natural extension of the Grounded Goodness vision to spread goodness, expanding it to Amanda discovering the goodness in her home province in a way she never has. That means meeting with Saskatchewan women in their own backyards (sometimes almost literally—the July 10 event in Eatonia is happening at a local entrepreneur’s home!). As Amanda finds out what the southwest has to offer, she will be making connections at Swift Current’s Market Square and Farmer’s Market on July 13. And yes, there will be “t-shirts and decals of all kinds.

Then she’s off to Lucky Lake for a free event on July 17, one of more than 15 public events during the tour to remind Saskatchewan women that when we use our voices, they are anything but flat. The Lucky Lake event is co-hosted by Courtney Siemans (designer of the original Grounded Goodness t-shirts) and Basket-Full Gifts owner Laurie Carter.

“Working with Courtney has been amazing,” said Perrot. “She helped take my business to a new level and introduced me and my products to Laurie. This kind of support reminds me that Saskatchewan women are strong, compassionate and kind—and even better together! I’m unbelievably grateful that the Sisterhood events are being embraced in new communities, because I know that finding your voice is transformative and stunning; I can’t wait to share that with new women in southwest Saskatchewan.”
