Week 32: BlinkNow
This week, I want to introduce you to Maggie Doyne and BlinkNow. I first heard about Maggie from the Do Lectures and her story left my jaw on the floor. BlinkNow blossomed “from a teenager with a backpack to a successful foundation and beacon of hope for the children and women of Kopila Valley”. At 29 years old, Maggie was already the mother of 51 children in Nepal.
Watch her tell her story here, I promise it is worth your while.
The BlinkNow Foundation’s mission is to provide an education and a loving, caring home for orphaned, impoverished and at-risk children. They also provide community outreach to reduce poverty, empower women, improve health, and encourage sustainability and social justice.
They place a huge emphasis on working together with our local community, conducting programs and providing scholarships for girls and socially vulnerable young women. BlinkNow offers vocational training skills to develop self-sufficiency including sewing, cooking, gardening, husbandry, computer skills, business and entrepreneurial skills.
I am looking forward to the documentary about Maggie and BlinkNow, called Love Letters for My Children.
Whenever I think of Maggie, I am inspired to work harder, to love harder, and to give more of my soul to the important work of this world. I hug Ollie a little tighter, and I write more love letters. I hope this story touches you as it has me. I am honored to support BlinkNow this week.
Here’s to more love letters,
