Jeanne Lottie: Awarded the Woman of Great Esteem (WGE) – Entrepreneur – Hong Kong/Canada

Monday, March 30th, 2009

On March 28, 2009, Jane Ip was honoured at the 14th Annual Woman of Great Esteem (WGE) Emerald Awards Ceremony at the Palm House, Botanical Garden in Brooklyn, New York. Among the 7 other honourees, the Ip sisters, Jane (Jeanne) and her sister Charlotte (Lottie), were celebrating the overwhelming recognition of their True Happiness inspired handbags, perfume and charities creations’ accomplishments.

School of Science & Technology, founder of WGE and a Democratic Delegate for the 2008 presidential election, in Bermuda in 2008. After learning that not only is Jeanne Lottie a name synonymous with stylish, affordable and fun handbags, but that Ms. Ip is also a humanitarian whose company is actively involved in fundraising events for charitable causes (The Pink Bedroom Party event, for example, was founded and organized by Jeanne Lottie, and has made a big impact by raising awareness about breast cancer for more than six years), Bishop nominated Ms. Ip as a dynamic entrepreneur at this year’s WGE!

And Ms. Ip is in fine company: First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were the individuals chosen by the students of M.A.C.A.D.E.M.Y. to receive a 2010 Woman of Great Esteem Emerald Award.

After a short, “wink it” speech about accepting and creating destiny, Ms. Ip, accepted numerous awards and a certificate, including a crystal trophy handcrafted by Jaffa, a Tiffany pearl necklace, two City Council Citation certificates witnessed by the council members of the City of New York, a Certificate of Appreciation presented by Senator John Sampson, and a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition in recognition of outstanding and invaluable service to the community signed by Yvette Clarke, Member of Congress.

Jane and Charlotte never could imagine 24 years ago, while signing the incorporation of Ontario application at Lottie’s home basement in Toronto, with their dreams of starting a business with the philosophy of true happiness and doing business in a fun and meaningful way would bring them such a huge honour in New York City. As quoted in the welcoming letter by the Mayor of Michael R Bloomberg:

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy.  I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”  Rebindranath Tagore
