With the rash of ice bucket challenge films being made across the global by the great and the good I started to think about would my response be, if I were to be nominated…
Giving to any cause for me comes from the heart, a want to give back to a charity I believe does good work in a sector of society that needs support i.e. homelessness, housing, overseas aid
Or to causes friends inspire me to find out more about through their personal connections i.e. Harrison’s Fund or those who I deem ‘crazy’ enough to run a marathon for
So mine time did come and I was called out to do my challenge, it even had a time limit on, which I missed by a day…
And that’s ok as the dare was more than just to fill up a bucket of water with ice and throw it over my head on film… it was an invite to be true to myself and consider one more time what and whom would I want to give my money to and how would I respond given wasting water is not a cool thing to do in my world.
My response was based on being a fundraiser for over 15 years in different guises with the belief that giving needs to be through free choice not through feeling awkward, pressured to conform or being accepted and fit in.
My hope is my version of the ice bucket, well ice tray challenge, is a truer reflection of the creative individual I am who through free choice gives creatively either because I have so much more than enough in my life to share around and/or sometimes it’s worth not having in my more than abundant life so others I may never know can benefit from clean water, a roof over their head, a friendly face and hot food…
What inspires you to give? Have you been nominated? If yes, what was your response?

Feedback used to scare the bejesus out of me… I read it all like criticism, new ways to add to my own internal mindtalk trains of very unhelpful and self critical chatter.
Now I welcome feedback as a tool for change, growth and love to learn (on the whole) what I can use to improve myself and what I love to be and do in the world.
So if you feel called to share your thoughts about any experiences you have had of working directly with me or if you have stumbled across me via Google, a random repost or share… then check out the links below;
For those who have worked directly with me via coaching sessions, workshops or event
For those of you who have found me more indirectly
For both there is an opt in at the end for our prize draws for winning one of 2 lots of £40 vouchers for Cass Arts!
Deadline 5th September 2014
Big Thank Yous in advance…
Open To Create… really would be just another idea if not for so many folk buying into what I am about…
