International broadcaster, humanitarian and activist Anita Wing Lee is coming to Revelstoke for two weeks of events starting Friday.

Lee is the founder of Project Soul Fam, an initiative that harnesses her expertise in livestreaming to create exposure for humanitarian efforts and world issues. She uses the streaming app Periscope to raise the awareness of global humanitarian work. She has more than 15,000 followers online. Revelstoke’s Amanda Hathorn-Geary has been working with her to raise money for Syrian refugees in Greece.

Lee will be in Revelstoke from April 1–14, where she will take part in several engagements. On Sunday, Apr. 3, from 3-4:30 p.m. she will be at Welwinds for a social media event with MastHERmind, a group that encourages female entrepreneurship and empowerment.

On Monday, Apr. 4, she will appear on the Stoke FM morning show. After, she will head to Revelstoke Secondary School where she will spend the day with students talking about refugees, unconventional living, First Nations and more.

On Wednesday, Apr. 6, from 7–9 p.m., she will be at Sangha Bean for a presentation on her work with refugees in Lesvos, Greece.

On Friday, Apr. 8, she will be at the Mountain Co-Lab for a presentation called “What is you wok up every day to serve?” The talk is from 4–6 p.m.

She will lead meditation sessions at Balu on Apr. 9 & 10. Saturday’s session will explore answering your life’s calling, while Sunday’s session will look at turning fear into inner peace and outer success.

Lee’s trip to Revelstoke is being organized by Revelstoke for Refugees and Hathorn-Geary, who worked with Lee on getting supplies to Syrian refugees during a trip to Greece last fall.

All events will be by donation, with 50 per cent of the proceeds going to Project Soul Fam and the rest going to Revelstoke for Refugees.
