Weʼre raising £750 to help me celebrate my 30th birthday: 30 wishes at a time
- Lisbon, Portugal
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I can't begin to tell you all the reasons why this past year has changed, inspired, frustrated, challenged and amazed me. Really, what a year.
I feel so blessed, so privileged, so loved. I feel closer than ever to become who I really aspire to be. Learning and evolving each day on this beautiful and intense journey.
Could I possibly ask for anything more on the celebration of the 30th birthday?
YES, I CAN.
Unfortunately, not everyone has the same opportunities, blessings and support that I have.
I strongly believe that every single person in this world deserves to have the same human rights granted and I'm passionate about bringing more and more awareness to the people around me to the human and gender inequality issues that we all should have a say on.
So, because it's my birthday and on birthdays we can make wishes, I wish to live in a world where everyone is given the same tools to fight for their dignity. Where everyone has access to knowledge and education. Where everyone has the chance to be conscious and to feel empowered. Where everyone can be supported and loved so they too can become the best version of themselves.
And as long as there is someone out there living in inequality we can all do something to close that gap. Small things, on trivial days, with the people closer to us. We can all be part of the change because we can all play a part.
One person at a time. Well, in this case 30 girls at a time.
Please make my wishes come true and help me raise funds to provide 1 full year of education to 30 girls through the Girl Move project on my 30th birthday!
Thank you for celebrating with me. It truly means the world to me.
