And a Do-Gooder

On Valentine’s Day 2016, Jamie brought to life a seed that had been sitting in her heart for years, a simple idea that she believed would make a big difference in the lives of girls around the world. Knowing the impact of having a safe and courageous place for yourself, Jamie launched Give a Girl a Journal, an international initiative designed to get journals into the hands of girls. What could be simpler than something to write with and something to write on? What could be more profound?

In the very same year, Jamie went out for a coffee and came home transformed into a loving mama and how-to-love-a-human instructor of three abandoned kittens. The stories and photographs abound!
