Alice is the co-founder of two charities (Tilinanu Orphanage and Love Support Unite Foundation) and the innovative fundraising company: Love Specs. Their ethos is about long-lasting sustainable change and they are all about a leg up and not a handout.
Fav quotes from this episode:
“The smallest thing can make the biggest impact to change somebody’s life.”
“You can do amazing stuff in the world and still be thinking – what am I going to do with my life!?”
“If you want to sponsor a child at Tilinanu, you can guarantee that all of the money is going to that and that there isn’t any overheads or administration costs.”
“Find a charity that you really love and whose ethos is very similar and go and either become an ambassador for them or go and intern for them.”
