Above the theme images you will see a notification telling you which plugins Passion requires. Click on ‘Begin Installing Plugin’ and the Install on the next page.

The plugin will activate automatically. When you see the following page, click Appearance in the WordPress menu to refresh the page.

Once the page refreshes, you will see a new option under the Appearance menu call 'Import Demo Data'. 

Click this option and you will then see the following page.

Importing the demo data will delete the first post. On a new WordPress install this is the 'Hello Word' sample post. If you are installing this child theme on an existing site, which is not recommended, be sure to backup a copy of your first post (the one with the lowest post ID number).

When you are happy to proceed, click the blue Import Demo Data button.

The demo data will then begin to import, this can take a few minutes so please be patient and only click the button once.

When the import is finished you will see the following screen.

Your site should now look just like the demo.
