Here's what Plan International do

Plan International UK      Facebook      Instagram    Twitter     @PlanUK

 

"Plan International UK is a global children’s charity. We work to give every child the same chance in life.
 

In every child there’s a spark of imagination, curiosity and ambition. But not every child is born with the same opportunities. When you face poverty or violence the odds are stacked against you. When you’re a girl it’s even harder to be safe, to be in school and to be in charge of your body.

 

All children deserve an education, health care and clean water. All children deserve the chance to thrive. We’re fighting so every child, especially every girl, knows their value. We’re fighting so the communities they’re growing up in – and the world around them – value them too. And if disaster strikes we’re there to protect children, keep them learning and help them recover. We work to give every child, every chance. Are you in?"

Why hmrwrites donates to Plan International

The first time I had heard of or encountered Plan UK was at a service station and one of their adverts was near the door and caught my eye. I was fairly young and I remember it being very poignant and almost hard to look at - even though it was only a few sentences long. It made a real impression on me and I have wanted to support the charity in some form since.

 

I found this charity at a vulnerable time in my life towards the start of puberty, and couldn't imagine having to deal with what I was going through without support, let alone what was and IS happening to girls and young women who are less fortunate than myself - and experiencing things I will never have to experience. To imagine not having ANY support still terrifies me, and this advert really opened my eyes into the reality of what it can be like for girls growing up today. 

 

The ad was one where you could text a number and give a set amount, and I did this straight away. At the time, I was too young to sign up and make regular donations. Since then, I have remained interested in the charity, but have only donated 'on-and-off', with small amounts and - in honesty - probably not as often as I should.  I have never been in a position financially to make a considerable and regular donation, so I chose to apportion the profits from some of my works, and use my platform here as a way of making regular donations to the charity to hopefully make a real difference - all through your help of course!

All of my available work that contributes to Plan is also available for free on different platforms, which I try to make as clear as possible in the different product descriptions in my shop. I want to make all of my work as accessible to as many people as possible, whilst also supporting a  charity I feel passionate about.

 

In order to contribute in as many ways as I can, this is why I offer my work in multiple formats. I realise it is not viable for everyone to pay for my work all the time, but I feel grateful I am able to have this option to support and spread the word of such a valuable cause. I hope you may consider looking into the charity yourself; the work Plan do is invaluable, and I have had only positive experiences with the team (little mention to the lovely Louise for helping me with this page)!

#30dayshmr

#30dayshmr is my BIGGEST collaboration project to date. Originally set up as a challenge to hold me accountable to note-taking, through the supportive communities across my socials, it has turned into an ongoing, collaborative writing challenge that encourages us to think about our notes more creatively, in turn producing better content and improving our own writing skills. Below are a few examples of responses to the challenge:
