My mission with Heart.Soul.Passion.Purpose. is to put some positive news out into the world and I'm starting in Africa. I am traveling to Africa for 3 months (12 weeks) to work with Days for Girls International. They are an incredible organization that provides washable menstrual hygiene kits and health education to girls and women around the world ( I will be starting in Kampala, Uganda and then surrounding areas. Then I will head over to Nairibi and Nakuru in Kenya and reach out to the surrounding areas there too. I will finish off the trip in Ouelessebougou in Mali. I love that Days for Girls International works with grassroots organizations to spread their reach. I love grassroots projects and meeting people who are making an impact in their own community. So when I am not working on Days for Girls projects I will be meeting with and interviewing people who are doing just that. I will highlight these people and groups on my website and share the awesome work they do in their communities. I believe grassroots programs and individuals are the key to making major change in the world. There are so many people with incredible passion and huge hearts who want to make their world a better place. My goal is to share their stories and help support their projects. Each person or group I highlight will draw a design that represents their work, I will then take those drawings and create prints, tee shirts and maybe some other cool things that I will sell on my site. The funds raised will support those projects- either giving them the funds or purchasing something for them that they need to continue their work. Have you ever seen the show Secret Millionaire?If not, you should watch it because I like it and it makes me get all mushy and teary eyed. Well basically I want to do what they do. Nevermind the fact that I am not even a millionaire (not even on the radar) and I don't have a big camera crew (but my mom will be there with a 35mm) and I don't have a budget (that's why I'm fundraising) and.... well, that stuff will figure itself out (maybe not the millionaire part but that's ok). My crew is small but filled with awesome- just me and my mom!

Africa is just the beginning. I would like to do this project with communities all around the world. Contact me at if you have questions, suggestions or positive things to say to me!

To Africa and Beyond

Fun Fact:
We are starting the trip with my 33rd birthday and ending with my mom's 60th!
