    I definitely learned things I didn’t know where happening in the world and how I can make a difference.  If we all just even a little bit, collectively it is huge.

    I bought my Mom an Easter lily and happened to notice on the label that it was a women-owned company!  
  • Reflection Question
    Food Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    I have never had of this term before.  The biggest advantage is helping to save our planet.  And to do so by planting more trees seems like a win overall.  And, who knows, maybe the cattle will like having trees around to lay in the shade.  :-)

  • Reflection Question
    Women and Girls Support Women-Owned Businesses
    Globally, women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. How can you better support communities by supporting women? Can you share any past experiences that may help others take action?

  • Reflection Question
    Women and Girls Help Girls Overcome Health Barriers
    In what other ways could you help girls overcome health barriers to being able to attend school?

    I can't imagine not being able to go to school, or to participate in life, due to having my period.  I feel this is a great cause and I will donate again in the future to help these girls.

    This challenge says to make a donation of 10 Femme kits.  I donated one.  I hope that's OK!
