Back in November BE FOR CHANGE hosted a small event. I have since tried to write about it, and failed miserably! Somehow my narration of the night was completely missing the spot. It wasn't until I revisited the photos this week, after the most recent world events (in particular the Women's Rights March and the No Ban, No Wall protests), that the importance of this Friends*Family gathering hit me right in the face: that all these people who have crossed my path at different stages, coming from all corners of the globe, were on that night united to support a cause. BE FOR CHANGE simply wouldn't be the same without their input, their opinions, their diverse points of views.
Surrounded by this loving support group, I felt hopeful and powerful and ready to move forward - not in the way people say when they suggest you 'move on', but forward as in that together it's possible to create real change.
On that night I disclosed to some of these people the next project BFC is embarking on: Honestly Magazine. Honestly Magazine aims to be a safe space where the voices of Millenials and Generation Z can be heard, a platform for original creative work which explores what it means to live intentionally and mindfully in our age. It will be about providing inspiration and exploring what makes life beautiful even when complicated and challenging.
This idea was dear to me to begin with, and it feels increasingly relevant with each passing day. We will be launching a free first edition in June. We are now a small group of people working on making this vision real - if you'd like to support this project you can read more here and drop us a line! Another great way of supporting our work is to share it through social media so it reaches more people who might be interested!
Do leave us your opinions, we really look forward to reading them :)
