When I was growing up the idea that there were people suffering in the world was almost too unbearable to even think about. i wondered if when i grew up I would be able to help and if it was ever going to be enough, these were incredibly overwhelming thoughts for a little girl. I remember being deeply effected by World Vision ads and at Christmas time the television commercials that would show children without food, clothing and the basic necessities that I took for granted. I always felt guilty.
I have travelled to developing countries and been touched by the struggles that my fellow humans endure but I have always become too overwhelmed by the gigantic task of thinking i had to fix EVERYTHING.
In 2012 I had the quote "Be the change you wish to see" tattoo onto my arm, it reminds me every single day that even the smallest act of kindness can be the drop that creates ripples far greater then you'll ever know.
My latest project has been inspired by a recent trip to Sri Lanka, please follow the link to read about our experience and to learn how you can help too!
Together we can ensure the Maithree Childrens home never has to worry about running out of food.
