As some of you may already know from my Instagram stories, and email last week, I have been doing a fundraising walking challenge in June called "Walk Alongside Women" and I have now officially walked a million steps to support Karinya House in Canberra (even more since then!).

As part of this challenge Sissa Sorella has donated 10 pairs of shoes for every 100,000 steps I took during the challenge and until the end of June Sissa Sorella will also donate $5 from every pair of shoes sold directly to Karinya House - our current tally is 34 pairs of shoes, so we're at $170 raised.

Karinya House is a valuable womens community service - a local, community based, not-for-profit organisation servicing Canberra and surrounding regions since 1997, Karinya House provides safety, shelter and a positive support network for women who are pregnant or parenting.

As a 24-hour, seven day a week service, Karinya House is the only service of its kind, specifically for women in the region who are pregnant or parenting, offering case management services which may include residential and/or outreach-based support services. Karinya House offers women practical support and opportunities that enable the development of confidence, a positive sense of self and personal skills and a place of sanctuary and growth for women.

I would love for you to help me out and finish off this valuable fundraiser with a bang!

If you are willing and able to make a direct donation to Karinya House please CLICK HERE or if you have a pair of shoes from our store on your wish list, they will also contribute to the fundraiser - $5 from every pair sold until June 30 will be donated! 

Thank you for following along on this journey and for your support! 

Lots of love from Kate xx
