Kate Roche has raised over $3,500 for Walk In Her Shoes!

By CARE Australia March 15, 2012 0 comments

What inspired you to do the Walk In Her Shoes challenge?I read about the Walk In Her Shoes challenge and felt compelled to act. I suppose because I have three beautiful young girls myself. If they are thirsty, they just walk a few steps to our kitchen tap to grab a glass of water or if they're hungry, they just open the fridge. It is truly sad to know that girls in the world's poorest communities who are the same ages as my own have a very different story to tell when it comes to getting the basics in life...food and water!Kate Roche is walking 10,000 steps every day this week as part of CARE's Walk In Her Shoes challenge. She has already raised over $3,000 to support CARE's work empowering women and girls to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty.Had you heard of CARE before signing up for Walk In Her Shoes?Yes I had heard about CARE before. I knew it was an aid organisation but didn't realise it had a special focus on investing in women and girls to help them overcome poverty. I definitely think it's this focus that helped inspire me to participate in the Walk In Her Shoes challenge.
