Lana is also involved in humanitary aid , sponsoring the Christian Children’s Fund .
LANA :You asked me to tell you about what charity I am involved with…for about 5 years I’ve sponsored two children, through the Christian Children’s Fund. Two little boys, one is in Dakar, Senegal and the other is in Addis Abba in Ethiopia. I am hoping to become more involved in Children’s’ charity work here, I’ve only been back in Toronto for 4 months. I think work with children is so important because they are the future. So if one can enable a child, Whether it be to read, write or to overcome illness or poverty, even educate them about the differences between people and expand their horizons and help them to achieve, then you have changed the future for that child. Also as a parent it is important, because you know how much children have to give an how fantastically responsive they are. I am also working on some other projects outside of the television and fashion . I wrote and am in the process of illustrating two children’s books, so I’ll see where I go with those.”
Lana Ogilvie is currently living in Toronto Canada , with her husband and children.

"This girl is a real beauty , I’m definitely in love with the first photo , she looks like coming from the moon , I don’t know , something like that … Also it has been very hard to find informations on her , and even to find goods photos actually. I could say that I admire her because She isn't totally focused on herself , but think about others also ... it's not that obvious ( hoping that this involvement is honest) "
