Connection to FACES

"I first became aware of FACES back in 2013 when I was on tour and was booked to play a show in Fort Macleod at the Empress Theatre. Despite many tours of Canada by that point, I had never been to Fort Macleod, and was curious as to who was going to show up at this beautiful 300-seat venue in a town I'd never been to. Much to my delight, I walked out on stage to a packed room full of people enthusiastically singing along.

"I soon discovered that Matt Bullock (FACES session lead and son of FACES founder Rick Bullock) had been performing my songs and sharing my stories as part of the FACES curriculum and that both he and Dave Orr (FACES Owner & Director) had been coming to my shows in Lethbridge and spreading the word throughout the community.  

"They then unexpectedly invited me to come work for FACES as a small group leader…. After such an incredible night, and meeting so many of the wonderful people attached to FACES, I couldn't say no.  That summer, I put my music career on hold, flew out to the mountains of Alberta, and had the most unbelievable 12 days of my life. I'm so proud to say that all these years later, I'm now a Session Leader, and I've been part of 11 FACES sessions.

"It's perhaps a cliché, but I really do get more out of FACES than I could ever give to it.  I've had to grow in many areas in order to be worthy of being in the role of a leader to all these young people and my team members. I'm blessed to get to do meaningful work throughout the year with my career, but there's nothing like the feeling of seeing the students go on the FACES journey, discovering their personal value and developing their personal power.  I've seen the profound impact of the program over and over again, I've had students who were in my small group 7 years ago, who have gone on to be on my staff, or other students who made significant life/career choices based on what they discovered about themselves in the FACES program.

"This program was ALREADY so vitally important for our future generation, but in these current times, it's immeasurably even more so, which is why, I am committing to raising this money to ensure the long-term viability of FACES, whatever may come." -Peter
