Tish also wants to raise awareness of the issues that girls in our nation face including family breakdown, domestic violence and depression. Starting today she is going to ride 40 kms (24 miles) each day for 40 days in an attempt to reach her target of A$15,000 which will be used to help these young girls. City Women is an umbrella for 20 organisations endeavouring to help young women and one of those is Bella magazine which I have mentioned before on my blog.You can watch a short video of Tish as she explains why she is doing the 40 days of bike riding.
She has many friends in Toowoomba including Caitlin from Caitlin's Happy Heart ~ Tales and Tips from a Triplet Mum and Caitlin has written a blog post about her friend who she has known since they were at school together.
A couple of years ago she wrote Fighting For Our Daughters which is now in its second edition. It is a very interesting and captivating book as Tish relates the issues that young women face in modern society.
If any of my readers would like to contribute to the great work that Tish and the City Women team do then you can support her in her attempt to raise the rest of the A$15,000 as, to date, she has already raised $6012. Donations can be made by Paypal or by Direct Deposit here.
I was talking to my friend Cathy last night who was asking me about how I made my rag rugs for my granddaughters so I thought I would give her the link to the tutorial I did a while ago.
So here it is, Cathy ~ Rag Quilt Tutorial. Have fun!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Our Down to Earth forums now have a new home so come over there and join us and say hello. It is all sparkly new!
