Hey Gratisouls!! Since today is “INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY” so I thought to publish one more blog in this series!! TREAT TIME!!! So let’s get started with our 6th blogger!!
So our 6th blogger is not an individual, but an entire community of women. The name of their Non-profit Organization is “WOMEN WITH GIFTS” and they blog over https://womenwithgifts.org/. Women With Gifts International has been in existence since 2010. Their goal is to reach, teach and empower low-income women and families who have the ultimate goal to become self-sufficient and help other women on their way up. So let’s dive into knowing about their inspirational woman!!
S01E06: WOMEN WITH GIFTS
We are not inspired by just one woman but by many. Thinking of a woman who makes leaps and bounds, we could easily think of Oprah or Ellen DeGeneres because they are known to make people smile and they are well-known philanthropist. However, when we think of inspiration we want to think of inspiration as something that is long-term and not a quick fix that last about as long as a television episode.
To change the question up a bit we want to ask WHAT inspires us instead of who? Because who doesn’t last forever but an object does. When we think of what inspires us, we are inspired by people and peace and by people who make good decisions not just for themselves but for generations who come after them. We are inspired by women helping women. There’s a rumor that says women can’t get along or women hate each other, which we believe to be untrue.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
Let’s introduce ourselves for a minute, Women With Gifts International. is an organization which originally started as a blog attempting to motivate women to do better not only for themselves but for their children. The mission behind our blog was to write to inspire. Then we started something as simple as a breast cancer, domestic violence and sexual abuse awareness initiative and that sparked something inside of us to do more. We essentially turned what we considered as a blog into a mission and our mission turned into purpose. Now our true purpose is to share what SISTERHOOD really looks like. Sisterhood looks like helping someone when they are low and when they get up, they in turn continue to help others.
Our motto is, “we are changing the world one woman at a time.” Our learning while we were building our sisterhood-type community is that sometimes women treat other women mean because it’s what they have been taught. If they have been taught the “mean-girl” or “I’m better than you” type way of life then that’s the world and community that they create. However, the more WE and more women like us create a sisterhood that shows love and honor, then that’s the environment WE create. Love conquers all!
What really inspires us?
Recently Nancy, who creates their everyday challenges and shares with others how to overcome them has inspired us tremendously, by Holly Bird who recently wrote a book and shared with others how to write their story as well. Terry writes some really inspirational poems while she is the caregiver to her adult daughter who has an illness. Apart from them, Jennifer is also a true inspiration who advocates for her son, who has Dyrk1a. and by all of the ladies who have taken a chance to tell their stories of their downfalls and continue to strive to be their best. Believe it or not, you all have inspired us to the fullest. We love each and every one of you! We are not in love with you because of your skin tone or because of your looks, we are inspired by you because of your stories. It’s our stories of inspiration and survivor-ship that connects us all!
Well they are true to their words!! Women With Gifts definitely motivate and inspire other women and this can be seen when this amazing community decided to feature your fellow Gratisoul as well!!
