We’re all connected in some way, shape or form.
Transformations for women can be seen or sought at any time of their life.
Giving is something that was impressed upon us by my mother since we were young…even starting our own non-profit group in middle school! (Ooooh…shout out to the Planeteers!)
There have been many who’ve given to me in so many ways that helped me move forward in my life – so much gratitude and appreciation for them!
One of the things I learned during my life, as well as my experience in the non-profit industry is that Philanthropy is a giving of: time, money or treasure (or resources.)
While my current business may not be a non-profit organization, it surely is a giving one.
Ways I offer the gift of guiding women in Embracing, Embodying and Expressing Her Perfection Through Play comes in different forms, and I go with the flow as other opportunities arise.
Teen Girls and Women touch my heart, specifically, especially as we navigate growing up with these built-in beautiful gifts to be of service for others while simultaneously being surrounded by people, marketing messaging and reduced access to resources that seeks to inhibit this expression.
As my way of supporting Teen Girls and Women, here are the ways I’ve built in Giving to support who I can whenever possible.
I understand there can be limitations presented where, at the present time, it may prohibit someone from receiving assistance and just needs some help. One of these may be financial. This is where you or she can apply for a partial grant (limited availability) to reduce the cost to some of the Experiences on the PlayGround. See each Experience to see which qualify for you to apply to.
Here are a few organizations I’d like to introduce you to that I’m either currently working with or have in the past that I’m just so amazed by the work they do. Check them out and if you have a way to give, please do so!
Creating opportunities to allow girls to DREAM BIG is the jam for Blueprint for Girls. They provide programs at no cost for girls, such as: experiential, social-emotional learning and STEM activities.
This Center is a play-tabulous safe place for girls, where it’s more than a school! They really provide a holistic approach in assessing and providing the tools for them be successful academically and in life!
Center for women in North Pinellas county offering a safe space and community. Ranging from acute and emergent assistance to financial and mental health workshops to clothing and hygiene pantry…you can find it here! Oh, and a whole lotta love.
This beautiful organization involves two of the some of the best things: tea and conversations! Founder, Denise Thomas, formed this organization to bring together Teen Girls and be that space for them to open up and talk about what’s going on while learning life skills and being encouraged to live where their dreams are actually a reality.
These students take their role of educating about Sexual and Reproductive Health seriously and love to be aware of what’s commonly taught as well as what’s also impacting them to encourage mindful health considerations prior to conceiving. By doing this, they’re impacting the health of mothers and the children they bring into the world!
Wanting to give kids with chronic illness the chance to have one wish come true, this organization does some beautiful work in making this happen. From being a desired Cowboy to a pimped out room to meeting their fave chef, the people with this Foundation truly makes it priority to grant the wishes these children so desire. Love granting wishes for these kiddos!
