HOP #25: How two friends raised $3 Million to support female entrepreneurship with Mary Fehr

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #25

How two friends raised over $3 Million to support female entrepreneurs with Mary Fahr.

Female Entrepreneur Mary FehrThe timing of this episode could not have been better! With Christmas right around the corner, it was such an honour to share Mary and Sara’s story about how they have now raised over $325,000, for GROW. With funding from the Canadian Government, every dollar they raised has the power of ten. That means $300,000 from their bike ride grows to $3 million for MEDA’s GROW project in Ghana.

We all want to do good in the world, but for whatever reason we let our everyday life get in the way. Fortunately, these two friends set out to find a way to change poverty, and have directly affected the lives of more than 3,200 families through GROW (Greater Rural Opportunities for Women) project.

$3 Million and 3,200 female entrepreneurs and their families is a number that would dumbfound most people. I know when Mary told me during our interview, I had to pick my jaw up off the ground before I could continue. When they first started, they had a goal of $16,000, which is still an incredible feat, but as the story broke and once they completed their journey more and more donations poured it.

Their story inspires me because it shows that when you are passionate about something and you take action can you can a massive impact. I know Mary and Sarah didn’t think they would be changing the lives of 3,200 families, but they did.

This Christmas and Holiday season, I challenge you to find a way to give back and support a cause that will change the world. If you can’t find one you love, then create your own…
