Leap of Faith

It takes a leap of faith to transform lives.

People make life-changing decisions and face their fears everyday. We've been so inspired that we wanted to share some of these stories - stories of bravery, belief and hope. 

This leap year we want you to take a leap of faith and make a difference, big or small. So explore this Leap of Faith story wall, get ready to be inspired and join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #LeapOfFaith.
