Achieved So Far...

November 2018 - October 2019

 

I hit the road to build a home for 8 disabled youngsters in Swaziland, immersed in a loving community. 

 

I have found myself enabled to fulfil this promise by helping people across the UK to make space/offer homes for millions of lives (animal, fish, plant, bug & on and on…) to thrive amongst us in 'wild' community, for the betterment & health of ourselves and our immediate environment.

'Wild Harmony' has evolved naturally out of my Milly Van experiences on the road: I'm grateful to share my progress so far with you...

By January 2019...

It had been a rollercoaster ride.  Punctures, broken laptops, tears, traffic, a few faulty pieces on the van and 2 small dogs who were adjusting to their nomadic new lifestyle.

I also got to meet MM Partners, Jim, Tracey, Simon, Angela & Helen!

From November 2018 to April 2019 I'd been carrying/selling the MOST gorgeous, eco friendly, vegan products, from my super appreciated Mission Milly Partners.

From Plant Based Snacks to Cruelty Free, Biodegradable Glitter and beautiful Coasters made from sustainably sourced rope/paints: the Milly Van was full to bursting from the minute she hit the road.

February - October 2019

 

By February 2019, I'd begun to collaborate with wildlife organisations (like the Peoples' Trust For Endangered Species) and Partner with conservation specialists like Colin Reader, to give back to the landscape I was travelling in.

Being frequently in urban areas - with my new environmental knowledge - I noticed a missed opportunity for urban rewilding on a massive scale: Pocket Protection was born. 

Being drawn more into urban commercial areas (for PP) I also saw a way to increase the sales of my Mission Milly Partners, promoting/selling their planet/animal friendly, 100% natural products ONLINE (instead of just from the Milly Van) to a completely new market of monthly subscribers: the Eco Intent Scheme...  Switching 1000s of businesses over to non polluting, animal friendly products.

-----------

(From February - October, I was also continuing to reach out to new Partners to fund my work: Partners whose products/services I believed should be more readily accessible to an audience of people crying out to realign with nature, tread more lightly and live more lovingly). 

I am blessed every time a new Partner comes on board because I not only get to further my own vision/keep my own promises, but I also get to extend the reach of businesses doing equally good work across the UK.

-----------

The ability to keep my promise to build 'Wild Anchor' for 8 disabled people in Swaziland (18 months earlier than I'd hoped) was achieved in August 2019.
