Supporting Friends Vision

Donations are welcome by anyone wishing to help support our cause and our sponsorship of orphan girls in Kenya. With all my heart, thank you. 


Dear Friend,

How would you like to get "free" mentoring sessions with me while making the world a better place?

Sound great?!

Read on... It gets SO much better!

The idea that launched this mentoring project/fundraiser came from watching a stone ripple on the water. The simple realisation that one small action, when strategically oriented, can create such a far and wide impact, became the solution to my frustration that I just wasn't doing enough for others yet.

The truth is that I am acutely aware of how powerful and lucky we are as women living in a rich country. And I often can't sleep at night knowing that millions of young girls, smart, talented, full of courage never get a chance to even dream of a better future. I've tried for years to help but it was never impactful or lasting enough. I wanted to do more... so much more...

Then it hit me...

As powerful women, when we come together, we can significantly increase our impact and help young girls to get an education and a chance to realise their own true potential.

I have chosen to support Friends Vision because I am inspired by their work and genuine transparency. I have known and worked with Jannah for years and trust that every dollar spent goes to the children's wellbeing and education.

The difference they have made to so many children in Kenya is just extraordinary and I know there are so many others that would benefit from their work, especially girls.

When helping children with their education, the most important aspect is the consistency of support.

Without consistency, children might get started with a lump sum initial donation, but are soon back on the streets or at work. Education takes time!

To guarantee their future, we need regular monthly funding.

That's how I decided to create this fundraiser by inviting women like you, keen to improve yourself and your business.

So how will that work for you?

It's as simple as a stone rippling on water!

Each month, I will run a free mentoring session for Powerful Women like you. To attend, the only requirement is to make a minimum donation of $10 on this page (or more if you can afford it!).

I will run this session each and every month on the third Thursday (TT), starting on Thursday, February 20th, 2020 - from 9:15 am (Brisbane QLD time) to 10:45 am. 

If you are here to have your first one-on-one coaching session with me, note that the minimum donation is $50 with no upper limit.

You can ask me anything from productivity, to marketing, strategy, mindset or communication. I will be fully there for you and guarantee to answer every attendee's question while on the call.

All funds donated will go straight to Friends Vision and all donations will be tracked via this page. (Feeling the goosebumps yet?)

The minimum donation for group mentoring is only $10, with no upper limit. Give as much or as little as you can. Every dollar makes a difference, as consistency is what really matters. You only need to make a donation prior to joining me for a group coaching session. 

That's the equivalent of "coffee with a friend", to change your life and the lives of young Kenyan girls.

Best coffee break ever! ;)


So please start by donating to my CrowdRaiser, as I know they will make the most of every cent received. And I will be very grateful for your contribution too!

Thank you and see you on the next call.

With my deepest gratitude,

Alex Cownie

P.S. Once you've made your donation, please email me your receipt at: alexandra.cownie@gmail.com and I will send you the details to access the next mentoring session scheduled. I use Zoom to run these sessions, you just need the link to join us. Access by phone or computer.
