Words on a Woman's Investment

You might remember I told you about a project supporting micro-finance in the Phillippines.  The invitation was for bloggers and writers to share one sentence on our interpretation of a woman’s investment.

The results are in, and you can enjoy them here:

    Hi Joanna - thanks. There’s some excellent quotes there and I like how you put it altogether on a slideshow.

  4. Cath, thanks. It was Jasmin that put them together into the slideshow - an art I’ve still to master…

    Joanna, thank you so much. I was just thinking of this project over the weekend and intended to dig through your archives today to find the link and get an update. What a wonderful effort and I will be sure to support financially.
