On October 24th, 2018 I’m taking part in Punch for Life, in Brussels, Belgium. The white collar charity event is organized by MC Boxing and there are 10-11 fights on the card, with almost half featuring women. Proceeds from the event go to Make-A-Wish International, an organization I am proud to support because they inspire and salute the younger generation of warriors.

The plan is to raise $1,800 US dollars for the event.

$1,800 US dollars for Make-A-Wish International fulfils a life-changing wish for a child with a critical illness. Because the fight is taking place in Brussels your donations support a child through the Belgium South branch of Make-A-Wish. I will also be donating some of the proceeds to a local organization that offers combat sport classes to empower young women and girls.


ALL donations will receive a “thank you” because every little bit brings me closer to my goal. If you want to donate and get a t-shirt or sweatshirt there are two designs available via Bonfire, created with the help of @mermaidurielle. Whether you are UNBREAKABLE or SHATTERPROOF remember that we are all #notmadeofglass.

(Shirts are still available and Bonfire ships internationally!)

However, you don’t have to buy a shirt if you have enough clothing in your closet. If you’d prefer to support the cause with funds only contact me directlyOther options for donating are direct PayPal, Venmo, or person-to-person.

If you will be in Brussels (or Paris, or Amsterdam, or London) on October 24th and want to see the fights check the Tour & Taxis site periodically or contact MC Boxing.

The future looks bright, Kids. Thank you in advance for your contribution, big or small! A little goes a long way and we’re stronger together.

Whatever you are fighting for, go after it with all your heart.
