Kind thoughts for Meghan Markle

Meghan explains that she is conscious of the millions of women around the world who left the work force in the last 2 years, largely due to COVID-19 issues. Meghan reminds us that women were disproportionately effected by changes to the work place as a result of the pandemic.

Meghan asks us all to join in this project, writing:  "if you are able, please join us and pledge 40 minutes today in service of others in the way that feels right to you. The time that you donate can contribute to a Global Wave of Service and set in motion meaningful impact in our own communities, and across the world."

Kind thoughts for Meghan Markle

You will see Meghan blow out a candle on a (small) birthday cake in the video, a cameo appearance from Prince Harry, and Melissa McCarthy doing what she does best - making us all smile!
