The J O Y – T R I B E … is a gathering of the beautiful souls who have enriched my life through blogging and connecting. Every now and then I will share a little interview, or simply some of the ways that someone has made the world a better place.
Yvette documents her experience of severe post natal depression openly through her blog ‘She is Sacred‘ and her social media. I have so much admiration and respect for the people who choose to do this, they are shining the light that is needed by those still trapped in their darkness.
I am in awe of people like Amber who do more than just comment on or talk about the things that matter. They actually make it their very real and tangible mission to BE THE CHANGE and do something about those things. The thing that matters to Amber is homelessness, and Feel Good Food Packs is a wonderful project providing packs of nutritious food to people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.
As a Mamma, I’m not sure there is anything more inspiring than a fellow Mamma who has lost a child and gone on from that darkness to change the world. Even more inspiring is when this is done so humbly, generously and honestly. Catherine Hughes lost her precious little Riley (pictured) to a vaccine preventable disease, whooping cough. Catherine and her husband have made it their mission, and Riley’s legacy, to raise awareness about whooping cough and vaccine preventable disease. I hope that by sharing a little of their story we can all help them with this mission.
