Creative Charity Adventure & Connect to Nature Course

Lookie - I've created a Facebook Header too - you might have already seen it!!

Welcome Pack has ARRIVED! WHOOOO HOOOO (and eek!)

My welcome pack is chock full of information as well as some suggested reading concerning the different groups I'll be working with – so I’ll be going through this over the weekend. My tummy did somersaults and was quickly followed by feelings of Eeek! So now it feels Really REAL!  

REMINDER TO SELF: Deep breath, one step at a time & keep it simple. 

I'll be working with the following groups during my 4 weeks in Chiang Mai:
  • Displaced Burmese refugees and migrant workers
  • Indigenous tribal groups
  • Single mothers in crisis
  • Direct and indirect victims of HIV/AIDS
  • Gay and transgender community
  • Children with disabilities

Creative Charity Adventure Fund UPDATE!

Your very kind donations have so far raised £223! THANK YOU! 

I am very grateful for EVERY PENNY! My target is £2,500 so please do consider making a small donation if you feel called to. 

I have also started to contact companies about the possibilities of some corporate sponsorship. So we'll see what happens there. *I am hopeful*

I'm also excited to announce that:

Doors are now open for the next Connect to Nature Course!

Examples from some of last years participants
Now that the weather is improving I'm collaborating once again with the fabulous Jaimie MacDonald & we will be running our Connect to Nature: A series of Creative Adventures course which starts on the 12 April. 

Am SO looking forward to this as it’s wonderful seeing each person develop during the course and their wonderful creations at the end of the 4 weeks. And you don’t even need any previous drawing or artistic-ness. You can take part from anywhere in the world as it’s an online coached course.

We have a super early bird offer of only £44 (normally £88). You also get a tree planted for you with Trees for Life in the Caledonian Forest. Just think of all those happy Red squirrels! Would love to have you join us!

For the full details as well as some films about the course please skip over HERE. 

You know it's hard trying to fit everything that's happened this week into one blog post - I have so much more to share about this past week so think I'll be sharing more often than weekly as the next 7 weeks unfold. ;-)
