Time to get real!
This page comes from a bigger blog post. If you want to read the full post it’s here.
This project of mine is all about educating girls and I know that it CAN be done.
I do a bit of need help though … in these kinds of ways:
If you’re inclined, looking for an Australian tax refundable contribution or you’ve got cash burning a hole in your pocket, or know someone who does – you can donate here:
Frances Antonia – One Girl fundraiser
But that’s just one way, read on…
2. Get your hike or challenge on – Commit
You can create a fundraiser page here. Join the Women Who Hike team and get your trail shoes ON! You can hike anyway you want – set your own challenge:
- Walk to work once a week
- Get off the bus, train, tram a stop early
- Do the stairs or the park at lunch-time
- Meet a friend, do it with your kids, family, colleagues, on your own
- Man I wish I could make a commitment to walk with my mum, that would be a lovely use of time (she lives in Aussie though, soz mum)
- Give up coffee/wine for a week/month – for One Girl
- Rope your workmates in
- Or be like me – plan an epic adventure that works for you
What-evs friends – get creative! Why not? Creativity can look like all of those things and so much more.
Not all of us have spare $ but we all have spare kindness! Say G’day, share the One Girl Story if you like the idea of what I’m doing.
Follow One Girl – be inspired by what they do.
Go for a walk tag it #hikeforonegirl. I’ll find you there and walking in the outdoors you’ll find yourself there too!
See ☝🏼 I found you!
4. Consume Consciously
Get your sanitary products from Tsuno – from Roz, the creator of a better humble pad and tampon. Better for us and better for our planet.
Tsuno pads are made from sustainable, natural bamboo fibre and corn starch. They are super soft, super absorbent, ultra thin and free from chlorine.
Their new range of tampons are made from 100% certified organic cotton and are chlorine and dioxin bleach free.
AND … the boxes are sooooo pretty don’t you think?
How’s this? Tsuno are so passionate about gender equality that half of their profits are donated to charities; empowering women (and girls) living in poverty.
BIG supporters of One Girl’s commitment to educating girls.
That’s WINNING on so many levels friends.
Give meaningful ones.
6. Pledge your birthday – I DARE ya! I’m doing it this year.
Birthdays. We all have them. They come around every year and with it, the inevitable question, “What do you want for your birthday?”
You can here:
Give up your birthday and give a girl and education instead.
That’s a start.
What do you think? What else? Any other ideas for me?
