Valentine’s Day: One Billion Rising

For all those that didn’t hear… One Billion Rising was THE event to attend this valentine’s day.

Reacting  to the emerging news-stories across the globe – that of gang-rape in India and Ohio, USA – One Billion Rising has decided that this is year that we say NO to female discrimination!

Instead of ignoring the situation, or feeling helpless about what it is we could personally do, this organisation made 14th February 2013 a day to remember with their motto; STRIKE, DANCE, RISE…

Events were set up across the globe, in an attempt to connect us as a nation and relish in the power of dance.

Thank you One Billion Rising! For doing something unique and extraordinary, and reminding us that the small things encourage the bigger things to change.

“We are the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become”

– Buddha
