Celebrate Women and Life + Free Women's Day Printable!

For South Africans, 9 August is Women's Day - an annual public holiday.  August is often informally labelled "Women's Month" and while that may sound like an excuse for burning bras and eating embarrassing quantities of chocolate (which I did yesterday - the chocolate, not the bra burning), Women's Month is actually a time for celebrating women for the entire month in which ever way possible.  1 day is simply not enough. 

I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to support women as a performer in this upcoming ladies' event for spreading cancer awareness:


One of the greatest things about being a comedian is using my time to put a smile on people's faces.  It is so rewarding knowing that a joke I spent writing and performing is something that adds a pocket of light in the life of another human being.  It's the main reason I continue to perform comedy.

CancerVive is a great organisation promoting cancer awareness, celebrating life and providing care to survivors after the mental and physical trauma of having experienced Cancer.  I admire this cause and am proud to contribute towards providing a little humour to these women who have been through so much.  If you are a lady, consider attending this event and celebrating the lives of those who bravely fought, continue to fight and have lost their lives to cancer.

As an extra, I have decided to treat the women to a little lasting Winking Plum girl power goodness in their goodie bags - these gorgeous A6 floral notecards by Winking Plum:  Each woman will get one!



If you like it, you can download the free printable and celebrate the life of another woman.  Oh yeah!
