Can you really make a difference?
Few of us have the courage or self-belief to think we can make a difference.
But you can. You truly can.
In a world, vast in population and resources, we find dimensions of inequity that take our breath away. And too often, these discoveries make us retreat. Make us step back, look inwards and settle for making our own way. What can I do?
But the world is also filled with men and women who do not choose this path. Countless people. People whose names we will never know. But whose choices we understand. The choice to live expansive outward-looking lives. Doing whatever they can, wherever they are.
And I want to join that team. That movement. Foxglove is all about the everyday person stepping forward and saying,
“I want to stand up; to injustice and inequity. And to stand for; empowerment and self-sufficiency.”
Can you imagine the impact of 1000, 5000, 100,000 people giving, educating and advocating in their everyday lives for women across the world?
I see it. And I can see it is not small.
And in return, I can see we get to live the kind of lives we imagine are out of reach when they are just around the corner.
Yet the first steps are tiny. They may not look like much. They may look like hosting a house party, organising a free dress day, volunteering to help on a stall or simply sharing an article on social media. But they are a point of contact for our soul that tells us we have bought in. We are going to be part of changing the world.
And when we set out on this path, nothing can hold us back.
