8 Women, 8 Camels, Trekking through the Aussie Desert for 7 Days!

Wow, so who would of thought 2014 would of held such life changing oppurtunities such as this! I'm very stoked to be one of the 8 women picked for this journey.

I've never done anything like this, and 2014 is the first year this trek will be held, so it's a new adventure for all involved.

We will not be riding these camels, they will be our little "pack horses" and comrades on our mission. 10-15 k's per day through terrain that will be completely foreign to me. Open skies, vast, desert plains....maybe some dingoes at night...we will have to have a big campfire to hopefully keep them away! No technology, no homely comforts, I imagine an ABUNDANCE of flies...and toilet??  Under the nearest tree I suppose...the way nature intended ;)

I hope you will follow the journey with me, and if you miss it, we will all be keeping a journal that will later be published as a book for ongoing fundraising.

What Is This About?

This Charity Camel Trek is about empowerment, compassion, and change. 8 women coming together, all with the passion and drive to help stamp out Sex Slavery. It's also about spreading awareness, to some who may not know that this industry is very real and a very large part, of South East Asia, India and across the globe. We will be raising funds to donate to Empower International, an organization that helps these girls, and even boys, get back on their feet after they are rescued from their ordeal. This is done through education, medical attention, ongoing nurture and skill development. Without these organisations exisiting to rehabilatate these abused victims, many would be lost, depressed, and have an onoing struggle throughout their lives.

Empower International is a not-for-profit, fair trade organisation.

They're focus is “empowering the privileged to empower the poor”. They believe in the priceless value of every person and they oppose the many injustices of extreme poverty, particularly human trafficking and sexual slavery in our world.

What Can You Do To Help?

Although we are doing the phsyical part of this journey,this is a team effort. We can't do it without you! We are trusting that the support we get from our communities and networks will get us there!

We have a goal of $1800 each, a very reachable target. Combined this will add up to $10,000 for Empower International.

I would be SO grateful if you chose to support me. A little goes a long way when combined so please donate even if it's just a few dollars :)
