WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

The Dunmore School

Bahamian students at the Dunmore School with India Hicks and James Andrew.

We here at WIJW do extol the virtues of writing a better story for our lives. We’ve also mentioned that this effort mustn’t simply be some sort of external makeover – true beauty in fact is that which connects us to our better selves. To this end, the effort must invariably come from within!

In our own quest to improve on the picture we’re continually creating, we do encounter really great opportunities not only to connect with our “best selves,” but to help others to do the same. When we heard that India Hicks was running the London Marathon April 2010 to help raise money for The Dunmore School in Harbour Island, we saw just such an opportunity.

“The mission of the school is to instill a love of learning, community awareness, and leadership in young children. This is crucial on our small island where most families need financial assistance,” says Hicks who has been putting herself through some rather grueling training to prepare for the marathon. “During the relentless hours of running, with blistered feet, crippled knees, and compressed discs, I remind myself how my fund raising will help to move lives forward.”

A joyful run with India Hicks and Dunmore School students.

It goes without saying that we here at WIJW wish India well on her run, and we very much hope that you will show your support and well wishes by making a donation to the Dunmore School Foundation. 100% of the funds raised will go towards sponsoring Bahamian children in need.

A check can be made out to ‘The Dunmore School Foundation’ and can be mailed to:

Pictured at top, I’m happily being upstaged by India and some of the incredibly beautiful students you’ll be helping!
