Hi all, tomorrow is International Women’s Day! Let’s celebrate “women’s achievements, raise awareness about women’s equality, lobby for accelerated gender parity, fundraise for female-focused charities.” Or maybe you’d just like to find out more about this day.

First of all, you might be wondering what the 2021world theme is this year. Or maybe you forgot…

Each year an IWD campaign theme is supported around the world. The IWD 2021 campaign theme is #ChooseToChallenge with its hand raised gesture that signifies solidarity in choosing to challenge and call out gender bias, stereotyping and discrimination.

That’s right! You will be seeing #choosetochallenge or #IWD2021 everywhere, or maybe you’ve already started using it! What caught my eye on the IWD site was the missions tab. It’s where you can choose which mission interests you. There are 6 to choose from. 

Women Creatives

Women and Technology

Women and Sport

Women’s health

Women at Work

Women’s Empowerment

There are a few missions that speak to me but, this is an art blog so the Women Creatives mission was the tab that I explored. On this page, I found out about ways to support women creatives. This mission is about “celebrating the work of women creatives and elevating visibility for commercial projects and commissions.” You can choose between Street Art, Poetry, Typography, Music, Literature, and more!

Yes, there are different initiatives along with different categories that you can choose from. All you do is find the right one for you, read about it, and if you choose, challenge it. It’s your choice how you would like to challenge it. Whether it’s raising awareness or there’s another way that suites you better, it’s all up to you.

Thanks for joining me, stay well and remember to empower the women around you!

Black History 2021

I’m loving the wealth of information about Black History this year! One blog post I came across was by Deandra from Black Princess Diaries or TBPD. The post is entitled 12 Black Hidden Figures You Probably Didn’t Learn About in School. The title says it all and this post doesn’t disappoint! It does go beyond what we learned in school. What was February like for you in school? For me, it was a few assemblies and a sprinkling of readings on the P.A. System. The celebration often didn’t last the whole month and depending on which teacher was in charge it also included a lunch and maybe a dance. But, I always wondered what was missing about our history? This led to me heading to the library where I only found more of the same as what was gone over in the readings and the assembly. Nothing more!

Deandra’s post stood out to me because the individuals in it are all just as important as the people we all learned about. On that note, grab a cup, sit down and click the link above to her post. Also, if you or anyone you know is looking for greatness to share about Black History think of this post! There is always more to the story.

Thank you for joining me. Have a great week and enjoy the rest of Black History Month!

Here’s a link to the GoFundMe page for those who can’t attend.

The money raised goes towards:

  • Paying the lawyers of young black children who have run into trouble with the law.
  • Hiring tutors for young black children.
  • Any extra money goes towards supporting the families of children who have been killed due to police brutality. Along with other black outreach organizations.

Please do what you can to support the cause

Thank you and stay safe! 




Hi All, today’s post is a list for those who would like to donate towards the fight against inequality. Since there is a wide variety of places to donate time or money do keep in mind that these are only suggestions. Please do your research and assess that your donation is aligned with the type of support you would like to give. I also wanted to remind the Canadians that read this blog that you can donate to Black Lives Matter regionally.

There is also a fundraiser to get justice for Regis Korchinski Paquet. Here’s a link to the Go Fund Me Page that was started by her sister Renee Beals – Justice For Regis. Or, if you’d prefer here’s a link to the Petition – Justice for Regis

To donate to Black Lives matter on a Global scale, there’s Black Lives Matter Global Network


If you’re looking to support the fight for justice in the United States here are 4 links I was able to find:

There are many more non-profits that are taking donations or petitions that you can sign to help. If anyone has anymore suggestions please leave them in the comments section.

Take care.


There is a lot going on in the world right now that we should ALL be angry about. I use this blog to spread positivity and encourage people but honestly, this past week I can’t!
