"I believe in this campaign. I am a recent mother my child is now 14 months and I will do everything to make sure she is safe and loved. However I also believe we should look after every child and person in this world. Parents are not solely responsible for their children’s character and they who they grow up to be, the other people they have come into contact with also shape them as they touch on their lives their teachers, child minders, friends or even a smile from a stranger on the street. Therfore it is important to me that I try to touch on other lives in a positive way and teach my daughter along the way compassion, love, understanding and the privilege of having enough when others may not.
