A Leicestershire woman is taking part in a global book launch with 18 other women in a world first – encouraging readers to buy the book, and then pass it on – in order to reach one billion women and send a ‘ripple of hope’ around the world.
Debbie Moore, a Transformation coach from Market Harborough has joined forces as part of a growing global movement called the Women of Contribution, to launch the book entitled ‘The Pay it Forward Series: Notes to My Younger Self”.
The book shares pivotal moments from eighteen women (including Debbie) from the Women of Contribution movement as they write back to their younger selves sharing an experience that changed their lives, and passing on hope, wisdom, knowledge and inspiration as a reminder that even darkest moments can be seen as a guiding light.
In a first, the authors are encouraging readers to purchase the book, and then to follow the ‘pay it forward’ principle; once the book has been read then that person pays it forward to other women: whether that is family, friends or even complete strangers.
They are asked to complete the message box at the front of the book before passing in on, whether it’s leaving on a train or bus, or simply handing it to a friend or family member.
Their hope, by doing that is that a billion lives will be touched, and many women will feel inspired and find a ray of hope.
Debbie Moore, one of 11 authors in the UK featured in the book says: “Sharing my story in the book has taken me way out of my comfort zone, yet I’ve done so for a big reason. With women starting to awaken to the true power of collaboration and contribution and the part they have to pay in changing the world, this book offers a symbol of hope to women that we can all step up, step in and be visible as the leaders of change.
We aim to show women how even the simplest thing like sharing your story can make a massive difference to others.”
The book is available on Kindle for just 99p very soon (see links below) and the paperback version will be launching on 17 March with a launch event at the Women’s University Club at 6pm.
