Please Help Us Reach Our Fundraising Goal Before Wednesday!

Greetings!

I am thrilled to say that we are now more than half-way towards our fundraising goal to purchase a new industrial sewing machine and serger for our Days for Girls Ecuador group!

There’s £1,405 already raised of our £2,500 goal as I write this – hurray!

We now have 3 more days to reach our goal before the end of October…if you have not already, would you consider contributing to our campaign?

…and if you have already sent us a donation, thank you so much!

I work here alongside a group of local women who sew and distribute reusable cloth menstrual pads and also provide education for women and girls in areas where they may otherwise not have healthy solutions for managing their menstruation.

Days for Girls is an international charity, working in 141 countries worldwide and we are very proud and excited to be the first official Days for Girls enterprise in the whole of South America!

P.S. I know that many people find it confusing that the currency for this campaign is British Pounds rather than US Dollars, which is the currency in Ecuador…this is an unfortunate quirk of the GoFundMe platform…as I’m registered in the UK, it ties the campaign to there and forces everything into Pounds – apologies for any confusion!

New Sewing Machines for Days for Girls Ecuador!

As you may know, I’ve been involved for the last year in setting up a branch here in Ecuador of the international charity “Days for Girls”, which provides reusable cloth menstrual pads and other menstrual solutions for women and girls in areas where they may otherwise not have healthy solutions for managing their menstruation.
 
I work here alongside a group of local women who sew and distribute the pads, along with menstrual cups and information on women’s health.
 
We are in fact very proud and excited to be the first official Days for Girls enterprise in the whole of South America!
 
We currently wish to raise funds to invest in a new industrial sewing machine and serger to move our work forwards more efficiently. We hope to raise £2500 by the end of October for these purchases.

All The People Song!

Here’s my new song, “All The People”…!

Screen Shot 2019-09-03 at 11.01.55 PM

 
 
The idea behind this song is that at any given moment, there are people all around the world going through so many different things…riding bikes, giving birth, crying, laughing, feeling cold, chasing rabbits, opening a letter, sliding on a slide and so on…our lives are all constantly shifting and may this little song, based on the Buddhist “Loving Kindness” Meditation remind us to bless all of those around us, whether they are going through great or not so great times…this too shall pass and may we all feel safe, happy, healthy and live with ease, through it all…!

All love,

England Update!

The girls and I have been in the UK for 2 weeks today…it’s been a huge adventure…!

A busy first week in London followed by a more laid-back time now on the Isle of Wight…sharing fun times and making forever-memories galore…

Today is my birthday and it’s lovely to be back in the land of my birth for my actual birthday – woo-hoo!

Feeling Awareness Game! (Fun Experiment with Children!)

The children and I had fun today learning to express our feelings better with a little game…we set the timer on my phone to go off every 10 mins and 10 seconds, then each time it went off we’d all state how we were feeling…a fun opportunity to see how our feelings come and go, ebb and flow during a day…sad, happy, confused…? Well, this too shall pass…!
