days for girls

have your heard of

well then let me encourage you to go & read

ok ... you back now?
well i'm joining in their
in fact I'm having a few friends over
to help put together a whole heap
of these kits
if you'd like to help
let me know
or donate even??
we need to buy supplies etc
or join in on the day yourself!!
Friday 11th October
is the
International Day of the Girl

because i believe in a humanity
that gives dignity to all
that all people no matter gender 
or race or status or religion
are equal
i believe that every single person has the right
to be educated 
so to be able to better their circumstances
should they choose to

i believe in the Chinese proverb:
"Give a man a fish 
and you feed him for a day. 
Teach a man to fish 
and you feed him for a lifetime."
 .... or woman!

i have a great calling to act on opportunities
like these ... really in our 'western urban' lives
they are often simple acts
but i have seen how simple acts of kindness
can truly make an impact
global change starts from within
starts with the 'people'
so go on ... join in!

Can't wait to get stuck into sewing these kits - so good to feel like our 'help' is going into something productive.
