Let’s Get Together and #makeforgood!

Etsy Australia is partnering with Plan International to try and change the world for disadvantaged girls living in poverty. Named the #makeforgood initiative, all Aussie sellers are invited to create products inspired by the theme, 'silver linings for girls' and donate at least 20% of the sale price to Plan’s 'Because I Am A Girl' campaign. The #makeforgood collection of products will be launched on October 11, International Day of The Girl, and will be promoted until December 24.

This is a sneak peek at the graphic I have digitally drawn for the theme 'silver linings for girls' which I will apply to prints or note cards. It features a young girl with long flowing hair floating though the clouds – totally free and purposeful. Inspired by my 10 year old niece, Mia, I've watched her grow into a bright, confident girl – she's played basketball, she dances ballet, tap and jazz, she plays violin, she's inquisitive and she's creative – all the wonderful benefits of an educated life in the western world. It is my hope that all young girls around the globe have the same opportunities as Mia - freedom, education, empowerment, and a safe, happy future.
