Crafting for a Cause: Move with Meaning

My friend and coach Gillian is the creator and organizer of an amazing local event, Move with Meaning. It got its start last year, when 50 women attended a four-hour, six-instructor fitness challenge and raised just shy of $10,000 for Haven Society, a non-profit society that provides shelter services to women and families in unsafe home situations. This year, we had 100 women participating, and we raised nearly $22,000 for Haven!

In addition to participating in the fitness event, I made 100 Body Positivity cards for the participants’ swag bags. I hope these cards will remind everyone that ALL bodies are beautiful, and that body confidence and self-love are not size-specific!

Have you ever wondered what a stack of 100 handmade cards looks like? I have. Wonder no more:    Here’s a photo of the amazing group of women who spent the day working out together in support of Haven Society:

And a sweaty selfie of yours truly, partway through the day!
I’m so glad I got to participate in this, and that I got to use my creative skills to honour all the participants!
