When you look back on hard times, a difficult phase in your life, what stands out the most? Sadness, the events themselves? No. The moments of light, the happiness and hope which guided you through it. Childhood- what do you remember? The same- only the happy memories shine through. The freedom, the laughing until you cry, the trust and friendships. The Guardian Angel Foundation in Gibraltar was set up with that one vision- to ensure every child has the chance to smile. Whether affected by genuine financial distress, a family member or themselves suffering from illness or disability. The Board ensures that every single penny is directed to the children, and they provide their time, advice and expertise without charge- guardian angels indeed. Every child deserves the memory of a smile and the foundation supports individuals, families or institutions who provide care, support or services to ensure that every child is allowed to smile. Looking back they will also remember that feeling, which is priceless.
When I climbed Kilimanjaro in 2017, I didn't know whether I was walking away or walking towards something in my life. I set off to achieve the goal and find my direction. But I didn't find my answer. I was lucky enough to find something even greater- amazing new friendships, memories of laughter, comradeship and trust. Moreover I learnt that taking hold of life with both hands and actually living it in the present was my reason for being there. Giving, loving and appreciating every hour of every day. So the new challenge for 2018 is to take me on a journey to help children smile, to create memories of happiness for them. Each step, however hard, I will count my blessings that I, and now my daughters, have memories of happiness. The Guardian Angel Foundation's sole purpose.
Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe awaits.. a tough challenge, encompassing alpine training with icy peaks and ridges. A challenge beyond my imagination, but its on! So please give generously to make this expedition a true success.
