AMP Cares Jenna Lowe Trust
Good Housekeeping’s relationship with Gabi and Jenna Lowe dates back to 2013 when we first shared their story in our magazine. Jenna – aged 17 – had been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension – an extremely rare disease. This coverage continued over the years, as they grew their campaign for awareness around the disease and Jenna launched her remarkable Get Me to 21 campaign, calling for South Africans to sign up as organ donors.
After Jenna passed away, the Lowe family set up the Jenna Lowe Trust to continue Jenna’s legacy and to provide information, care and support for Pulmonary Hypertension sufferers and their families. Gabi retrained as a life coach and launched her Resilience Factory, running workshops to teach and equip people with positive steps they can take when faced with challenging situations.
When it came to choosing our speaker for the Good Housekeeping 2019 Mother’s Day High Tea, Gabi was an obvious choice. As mothers, learning to build up our own resilience, and teaching those skills to our children is vitally important.
On the day, Gabi shared Jenna’s story and the Ten R’s of Authentic Resilience that form the basis of her workshops. Gabi completely captivated our audience, who – through buying raffle tickets on the day – raised an incredible R20 510 for the Jenna Lowe Trust.
