“My dream is to advocate for people with dementia – to give voice to those who can no longer express their needs.” - Jackie Tweedie

Hi, I’m Tatiana. I’m excited to tell you about my friend, Jackie Tweedie, who has won the opportunity to compete in this year’s Toastmasters World Championship of Public Speaking.

Jackie’s nine-year odyssey into the world of dementia with her dear mum Jean has given her a powerful and compelling message to share with others. She has successfully risen through four levels of competition to become a contest semi-finalist (and hopefully a finalist!) at the 2023 Toastmasters International Convention on August 17.

Jackie’s dream of giving voice to the voiceless with humor and hope on is about to come true on a grand scale, and I’m asking for your help to make it happen. My goal is to raise $3,400 to help Jackie cover the out-of-pocket costs for conference registration, lodging, food and travel expenses.

Will you join me? Please help Jackie as she takes the world stage by supporting her with a contribution of any amount. Your donation is deeply appreciated.

Jackie gave her inspiring speech on the magic of 'just a little' goes a long way. She demonstrated that if we simply sit with our loved one with dementia, we can impact them greatly with calm. Jackie was part of 28 super speakers in the semi-finals. She was not chosen

The contest is 20 days away. Jackie has been diligently writing and practicing her two speeches for the contest. She has collected a team of experts and mentors to develop winning speeches. Her messages around Dementia with Dignity are encouraging and useful for anyone who knows someone with cognitive decline.
