This week i held a mini fundraiser to support Oxfam's Get Together Event for International Womens Day. It was simply a tea and cake party in my home for a small group of friends, who bring a donation for Oxfam. With the issues that have been going on with work recently i've been thinking a lot about Women's rights and the blatant inequalities that still exist in society. However, our country has it good compared with others. Do you know...
"There are around 1.3 billion people living in extreme poverty worldwide; more than two-thirds of them are women and girls. Statistics like these reflect the bleak reality of life for millions of women in the developing world. All of Oxfam's projects have gender equality at their heart, ensuring women overcome the discrimination they face, and secure their basic rights."
Just by having a few friends over, we raised nearly £50!
Our days/weeks have been busy recently; our usual commitments, lots of playdates for the kids, sorting out my redundancy, hospital appointments for my ear, Aarons eczema, injections..... and so the days are flying by!
