Welcome To the First Issue of Kindlings!
Welcome to the first issue of Kindlings!
Over the past few months we have been working together to create an online community and platform to inspire young people to make a difference during their time on earth.
Brought up in the ‘lucky’ generation, where “You can be anything you dream” was our mantra, we were following paths to become doctors, lawyers, designers, musicians - only to find what we really wanted to be was a Kindling.
So many of us today have “followed our dreams,” training to become a career title. Wouldn't it be great if we could find a way to use the skills we’ve learnt along the way to create a world where our core values aligned with our actions?
We began to realise that the satisfaction that our careers, education, appearances and material possessions were promised to provide, wasn't all it was cracked up to be. We met more and more people searching for more.
This dissatisfaction alongside the daily feed of buzzword-filled click bait driven to encourage consumerism, we began Kindlings. Pouring through magazines encouraging consumerism, we decided to create a space for people to realise their true values and discover ways to make a change.
Kindlings is an online magazine and a community. Our content is planned monthly and we welcome fellow Kindlings to contribute their stories and ideas.
In our first issue, we will be releasing one article from each category over the month of March 2016. We are looking forward to many more issues to come and more Kindlings to inspire along the way!
