When I first started Moving Mountains it felt impossible to choose only one place to direct our donations. I felt pulled in so many directions for causes that spoke to my heart. I decided, instead of choosing one charity to focus on, that I would rotate organizations every few months and spread some good all around. It has worked well for us and supporting organizations big and small has been wonderful. But, as Moving Mountains has changed over these last 3 years, so has my understanding and thoughts on the issues facing women and girls around the globe. I am honoured to have partnered with so many worthy organizations over the years and contributed over $4800 to the work they are doing. However, I have felt my heart calling me a certain direction and I have decided to follow it.
As of now, Moving Mountains will be focussing on supporting the education of girls in developing countries. We know that when girls are given access to education they are given the power to transform their families, communities, countries, and the world. The longer girls stay in school, the higher their incomes, the less likely they will be forced into childhood marriages, the more opportunity they have for a rewarding future, and so much more. When we empower women and girls with education we see lasting impacts and meaningful improvements not just for the individual, but entire communities.
We have chosen a partner organization to make this contribution impactful and moving forward, for every piece sold, we will be supporting education for girls in developing countries.
Please reach out if you have any questions about our mission! We are excited to see what the future holds for Moving Mountains and are eager to start on this new path with you!
