Why I am supporting CARE Australia

My Story

Hey there - thanks for checking out Paddle the Nile. What can I say, I'm a woman on a mission...to paddle the Nile, all 6,853kms of it and bring as many people as possible on this journey with me. I was inspired to do this after seeing others who’d done firsts. I enjoy my work, but have continued to search for more. After much soul searching, researching and thinking I came up with this expedition. It was like the ultimate light bulb moment when it came together. This is going to be an incredibly challenging trip, both physically and mentally. With it likely to take around 9 months to complete, it’s not going to be quick either! A big part of this expedition is to build a community of women doing their own firsts – Winning Women. This isn’t not about winning in the competitive sense, it’s about having a personal win. These definitely don’t have to be world firsts, but something you’ve always wanted to do. Something with a strong why for you. And with this we build a community of fellow women encouraging, helping and inspiring each other. The other key part of this trip is raising money for women, those women in poverty, are refugees, who desperately need help, who don’t have access to the kind of education and healthcare we here are blessed to have. CARE is a charity feel very passionately about. They are a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to saving lives, ending poverty and achieving social justice. They put women and girls in the centre of all their initiatives because they know we can't overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. So let's help others as we make our way along the Nile! From your friend Sarah

About Winning Women

Sarah Davis started the concept of Winning Women - women going out and doing their ‘firsts’ - when she came up with a dream she wanted to achieve. Sarah is going to paddle the Nile, a first for her and a first for women. Check out Sarah’s video above.

Sarah wants to use her experience to encourage women to go and do their own firsts and WIN – it’s not about winning in the competitive sense, it’s about having a personal win. These definitely don’t have to be world firsts, but something you’ve always wanted to do. Something with a strong reason for you. And with this build a community of fellow women encouraging, helping and inspiring each other.

Some ideas are:

• Enter a run, from a 5km fun run through to an ultra-marathon and everything in between
• Go and try a sport you’ve never done but always wanted to. Maybe you had a childhood dream to ride horses. Time to giddy up and go do it
• Maybe there’s somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit
• Climb Everest, walk the Camino de Santiago, bungee jump

What is something you’ve dreamt of doing? Don’t put it off another day, take action now. You’ll experience that incredible sense of achievement and fulfillment, push your own boundaries, get out of your comfort zone, create lasting memories, maybe let out your inner adventure junkie. And with it, share and inspire others. Oh, and have a heap of fun on the way. This is about LIVING our lives!
While you’re doing your first, how about helping women living in poverty, or refugees, who don’t have access to the kind of education and healthcare we are blessed to have?

Raise money for CARE Australia and you will do exactly that. This incredible charity is a global leader within a worldwide movement dedicated to saving lives, ending poverty and achieving social justice. They put women and girls in the centre of all their initiatives because they know we can't overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

It doesn’t matter how much you raise – whether it’s $10 or $10,000. Even if you don’t fundraise for your own first, donate to one of the other women here, or Sarah herself.
