Do It In A Dress 2019

I'm fundraising for...

I travelled to Africa in 2012. It was the year that I reconnected with my bucket list and stopped waiting for my person to come along before I started grabbing life in a bear hug.

I went alone. There has always been something about Africa that has pulled me, but I didn't expect to be profoundly changed from being there for just a few short weeks.

I was, though.

I met with local people who were so incredibly open-hearted and welcoming, despite their daily challenges. People who shared with me their stories, their love for their land and animals, their pride in their families, their pain for their struggles. People with whom I fell in love.

People who did nothing other than be themselves to show me how much I needed a kick up the butt to be aware of my own privilege. To humbly see everything I had to be grateful for. To have my perspective shaken on what constitutes a life problem.

I came home, but a piece of my heart remains in Africa. And this year, I'm honoured to join with @onegirlorg for their #doitinadress campaign to raise funds for girls in Sierra Leone and Uganda to give them the right of accessing education - something that was always an unquestioned right in my life, but many girls go without simply because of where they have been born.

We have the power to change this. Education leads to freedom.

I'm walking 13 kilometres every day in September for the 13% of girls in Uganda who are married before the age of 15, instead of being able to grow up innocently and receive education to give them the power of choice over their lives.

Anything you can donate towards educating girls of the future will make a difference. Thank you so much for your suport!
