“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the concerns of all humanity” Martin Luther King

 Do you agree with this? Do you live like this? In such a global age it’s still very easy to live with tunnel vision and just look out for number 1. Often the need is so great that we get overwhelmed and think that helping one person is not enough. But it is.

 Thanks to people like Martin Luther King who lived his life for the concerns of humanity we have seen massive cultural shifts and the voices of the vulnerable are increasingly given expression. But why should we care about others? What’s in it for us? Maybe your belief system or philosophical outlook compels you to live as an advocate. Why else should we care? Do the limited opportunities that others experience have an impact on all humanity, is it just the right thing to do to help others or should people find their own solutions?

I’d love your thoughts on what resonates with you,

If you’d like to connect with us, I’d love you to do so through Facebook, Twitter or by email,

Or if you don’t need any convincing, get involved and support the girls in the Pacific who we are walking along side,

Warmly,

Jane and the a Girl & her world team
