Today is International Women’s Day.
What does that mean? For me, it’s about opening our eyes to the plight of women around the world. It’s about extending the hand of sisterhood. We can’t change the whole world, but we can change the lives of some people.
This week I walked 35 miles (5 miles a day for 7 days) to raise funds for Walk In Her Shoes.
My goal was £100, but with the support of friends and strangers I more than tripled my goal. This will help to build clean, safe water sources closer to communities so that women and girls don’t have to walk five miles a day (carrying about 20 litres of water each). I won’t ever meet any of these women or girls, but that doesn’t matter. I know that I’ve made a difference.
Would you be willing to Walk In Her Shoes? It’s not too late. Why not sign up to walk five miles a day?
I have a busy life as a work-at-home mother. I managed to squeeze in five miles a day because this cause matters to me. Water is a fundamental human right. Together, we CAN make a difference.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported me on my walk! I really appreciate your kindness.
