Two years ago I started attending Dining for Women meetings. For a brief time I was unable to attend, but the giving mentality of the organization and the women involved brought me back. I just attended my first CARE conference through Dining for Women and I consider it an experience of a life time. It taught me how I can be of service with my local chapter to do even more for the world. I hope to continue to be a big part of DFW as we lobby for women's rights around the world. This organization is a strong starting point for all to learn – no matter your age – of how you can help the world one dinner at a time.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Learning to lobby for womens rights.

Thanks to two great lady friends at my church, I was introduced to DFW and to Marsha about the second year of their existence. Marsha's dedication, as well as the charter members', has led DFW to grow unbelievably. This is the most meaningful free time activity that I participate in. I so love the concept of empowering women in desperate situations to become self sufficient and spread this marvelous example to their children and their neighbors in the villages. I am so proud of the many villages and women we have helped. I am not able to donate huge amounts but it is so reassuring to know that my donation's value increases greatly in these third world countries and has a powerful impact. My son who lives in NY was also very impressed and he donates quarterly to them. A proud member and mother, Anne Marie Currier

sharing an awareness of the need and the responsibility for women outside of our country. It is an interesting conversation and hopefully mind broadening.We may only sow the seeds, but the harvest will be bounteous in time.
