I founded Postcards For Peace in June 2013, inspired by the work of Jeremy Gilley at Peace One Day and also after reading Richard Branson’s Screw Business As Usual and, makers of smoothies and fresh juices, Innocent. The final push I needed came after watching a lecture by Sam Roddick – daughter of The Body Shop’s founder Dame Anita Roddick, in which she reiterated Sir Richard’s view that we should all try and put the skills we have to good use in our community or wider world. I felt postcards gave a massive opportunity to use my skills as a trained graphic designer with over twenty years experience. And Postcards For Peace was born.
I have now made it my mission to dedicate as much time as I can to using the charity to create positive change around the world.
Much of the journey I have taken with Postcards For Peace has been a learning curve but it has been an incredibly rewarding path so far, along which I have made many new friends. I believe that if we can teach children as much about the world, and it’s people, as I have learned since beginning this project, we will be well on the way to create a planet that is more united in it’s diversity.
I am passionate and determined to make this work.
