I love what I do
I take time to pause
I think in circles
I build connections
I eat dark chocolate

Raising Funds, Raising Hope
“There can be no successful response to tackling climate change without changing the way we empower women and girls.” Paul Hawken.
I actively fund raise for a goal that is close to my heart, educating girls and empowering women. I support the Malala Fund, the inspirational girl who stood up to the Taliban and won, because every girl deserves to go to school and OneGirl who do great work across Africa.
Educating girls and empowering women is the single best thing we can do to reverse global warming, its hopeful Maths, see the DRAWDOWN project results here.
