I'm excited to be taking part in The Girl Effect, an awareness-building campaign driven by girl champions around the globe. On October 4, a whole network of bloggers from all backgrounds will write to increase awareness of girls in the developing world, and play a small role in eradicating poverty, creating thriving communities and slowing the spread of AIDS.

  1. This is very clever. I will definitely tell my wife about this posting. She can make a lot of stuff herself but never thought about making the yoga mat for ourselves. She’s changed at least 4- 5 mats already in the last three years doing yoga. It won’t be cheaper to make them yourself but it’d be fun.
