Dear Beautiful Friends,
Over the past 15 years, I've dedicated my life's work towards ending the vicious cycle of child sex slavery in Asia with Art to Healing.
As my 40s approaches and I pause in mid-life reflection, there is nothing more certain and sure for me: That I devote the rest of my life. My time, effort and love for this forgotten and marginalised community, so that they can live lives free from slavery...and to give them a chance not just to survive, but to THRIVE, GROW and SHINE.
I am incredibly blessed in my life. Most of all, as I stand at the threshold of my 40s, I feel deeply grateful for the amazing community of generous and magnificent souls who surround and support me.
For my 40th birthday, my wish is to be able to continue the vital work of trauma recovery and mental health support at Art to Healing, so that these girls and women can have a chance to regain their freedom, sovereignty and wholeness.
My birthday wish is that we share our abundance, love and goodwill with those who aren't as fortunate. I am asking you to be part of my wish...contributing to sustainable practical solutions and love in action for one of the darkest and inhumane global, gender-based issues currently in the world today.
At #40for40, I would like to raise $6000 AUD to support 40 other women and girls who have experienced sex slavery, exploitation and trafficking to attend our trauma-informed programs in India and Nepal in 2020.
It costs $150 AUD for one woman to receive valuable, life-changing trauma recovery support. 100% of your donation will go directly to these girls and women.
None of this would be possible without you, so thank you for being apart of my 40th dream and wish this year.
Here's to YOU, and 40 more years of impact. Every cent counts...big or small.
Let's do it!
