Today I had the privilege to meet with 12 spunky, successful women who are taking their professional experience, their money and time out of their busy schedules to help women transition from poverty. These are just a few of the woman who are helping other women to become self-sustaining women caring for themselves.
They are often alone in the care of their children. By simply donating gently used business clothes to give to women who need work clothes seems a simple way to help other woman.
The mentoring and the exchange that takes place between a woman who has made it and a woman who really wants a better life can be so very powerful. There can be no better feeling watching another woman find her joy, and surprise that there are so many women who care about her well-being.
Just One Woman Helping Another – That’s All It Is
The Suit Yourself Program is not about money it is about the respect and kindness one woman gives to another woman. She gains self-confidence and pride in herself. You cannot measure any of this in dollars, gold, or any material stuff. This is about one woman helping another woman along. Can their be any better reward? I think not!
A Simple Way to Help Another Woman
Do not let the day go by without helping one of your sisters along, it can be as simple as a kind word or a pat on the back. Make today a better place for woman by giving her a hand up……not hand out….You both will gain so much. I am proud to say I am one of these woman and the Women’s Initiative of the United Way can help women who have fallen on hard times pick themselves up and make better lives for themselves and their children. We all must help to bring another woman along if we want this to be a better world for her and especially her daughter and her grand daughter.Have a great life…Dr. Nancy
