Entrepreneurs, no matter the size of their businesses, can change the world for the better.
When clients or students invest in their own healing and evolution, a portion of that money goes to worthy causes, both within the UK and abroad. I am always considering ways to increase impact in the world, and we do this together. Thank you!
Classroom of Hope
Over the course of 2019, I used my business to raise over £3500, to help build a school in Cambodia! A group of Entrepreneurs, mainly based in Scotland, teamed up to raise £45,000, to build a school in rural Cambodia, an area that needs support and resources the most.
I chose to support Classroom of Hope and their efforts to build schools around the world because their values align with mine. I believe that educating girls changes the world. By providing schools, the risk of trafficking is greatly reduced, and the opportunities increase exponentially.
We were able to visit the school in January 2020, to connect with the children and the families within the community. The experience of connecting with the team, raising the funds, and travelling to warm and welcoming Cambodia, was all so wonderful, that I have agreed to join another project! This year, we will be raising money to build a school in Lombok, Indonesia, where schools were destroyed by earthquakes. If you are interested in learning more about the project, or in joining us too (we'll travel to Lombok to see the school, and to Bali for retreat in 2021), you can see more details here!
B1G1: Business for Good
I am a member of B1G1, because I whole-heartedly believe that business can bring about meaningful change, and do good in the world!
Every time a session is booked with me, I give to Free to Shine in Cambodia! I was fortunate enough to visit the organisation in Siem Reap in January 2020, and was able to see first hand the impact of their services. This group is dedicated to ensuring that girls in the surrounding communities are in school (which greatly reduces the risk of trafficking), providing support for families, clean water, bicycles, and other necessary services to keep girls safe and in education.
In 2019, I was invited to support the participants of the Heal Scotland Community pilot programme. This 12-week pilot provided residential support for people with a variety of illness. During their stay, they followed protocols to reduce inflammation in the body, to re-program the subconscious mind, and to heal, both physically and emotionally. The benefits and the stories of healing were pretty inspirational! The hope is that this community will run more regularly in Scotland, helping people to heal in more holistic ways.
The Goddess Gathering is a yearly event held in beautiful Portavadie, offering goddesses from around the UK and beyond a weekend of connection, learning, deep healing, and empowerment. This is an ever-evolving event, supported by powerful women who are ready for change, and the proceeds from this event go towards funding the efforts of Heal Scotland. More information about the upcoming Gathering in November 2020 can be found here.
