In August 2011, my friend Dan and I will be travelling to China to teach English. Whilst there we will be volunteering at orphanages to help abandoned and orphaned children. China's one child policy means that hundrerds of thousands of children are abandoned every year. Please support these children by donating to our project which support the Half the Sky Foundation. Whilst there we will be keeping a blog to let you know how we're doing and showing you the good that your donations are doing.
I have many other projects that are also close to my heart, most notably supporting endometriosis sufferers and supporting families with children suffering from Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome. Aicardi-Goutieres syndrome is something that has affected my family and many other families. My cousins, Emily and Megan, died at a young age because of this genetic disorder and with there only being 50 reported cases worldwide there is very little support for it.
As an Endometriosis sufferer, I want to help other women who suffer from with the disease. it can have a truly horrible effect on the lives of women and affect their fertility.
Please help any of my projects, it's much appreciated!
