Not to put a damper on things but it might be a bit more noticable if women at least got a day off for this so called holiday I as many others will still be not only working inside the home but outside as well…So much for a holiday!
When you stop and think what might happening in other women’s lives across the globe, those living in poverty, in war zones, in fear of domestic violence, I just start to feel grateful for my own existence, humble though it is.
Just thinking out loud here..
But I was reading the sister hope website and thinking would it be an idea if we at FF adopted a charity of our own?
If we each were able to make a small contribution to a single charity for women and recieve regular updates through FF?
Of course I know Martin would have to make sure it was all above board but maybe it would help us all bond together in supporting a single cause..??
Cassandra that is such a good idea. Having a supply of pads is a necessity for every woman. It never really occurred to me what women and young girls would do without them in developing countries. But I can’t help thinking that the idea of making reusable ones is also very pertinent for the planet and not just to save money.
