For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.  For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.  For a very long time I have equated

Me to We

Me to We is a social enterprise with a mission: to change the world one transaction at a time. They measure their success by the number of lives that they have changed and half of their profits are donated to their charitable partner, Free the Children.  

Free the children is the world's largest network of children helping children through education. With the help of your purchases, Me to We is working to bring their already low administrative rate down to zero in the next five years. This way 100% of all donations will go directly to projects.
