Walk In Her Shoes

Today's post is going to be a little different.  Though it doesn't technically have anything to do with natural remedies or being environmentally friendly, the purpose is similar.  The reason I love to pursue a natural, healthy, eco-friendly life is because I am trying to live the best way I can for myself and for our world.  For this same reason, I am going to be participating in CARE Canada's Walk In Her Shoes challenge.  I know the post is long, but I think it's worth the read.  At the very least please check out my fundraising page through this link:

Helping those less fortunate than myself is something that I feel God has been laying on my heart a lot lately. I saw a commercial for CARE on TV, and looked up them online.  Once arriving on their website, this challenge stuck out to me. I was excited to see that the timing was perfect and decided to participate.

In the poorest communities around the world, women and girls are often the ones tasked to collect water, firewood or other basic necessities of life. They walk on average 6 kilometres a day while carrying the equivalent of a suitcase. This leaves little time to attend school, access health services or earn money to support their families.

Yet when women and girls are empowered to tackle these issues, whole families and communities directly benefit.

To help break the cycle of poverty and in celebration of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day I’ve decided to join CARE Canada’s Walk in Her Shoes challenge. I will make a difference for women, girls and whole communities living in poverty around the world.

I will be walking 6 kilometres every day from March 2nd, finishing on March 8th (International Women’s Day) to raise funds to help fight global poverty. I need your support to reach my fundraising goal!

Please support my walk in her shoes challenge by making a donation today!

All donations will go to CARE Canada to empower women, girls and whole communities to improve their lives and the lives of those around them. Together we can make a difference!

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
