Shades of Color, LLC is a proud donor to Women Empowered. Our motto is to uplift & inspire, and Women Empowered does just that. We have given in-kind calendars to the organization's gift bags and most recently Easter baskets for the Girls Today Women Tomorrow mentoring day. Women Empowered is the very type of organization that makes giving easy because we know that they in return will give 10 fold. It is a pleasure to see the group grow, and we will continue to support in any way we can. Congratulations, Women Empowered, and continue to be a great success!

My company, Kai Expressions Jewelry, partners with Women Empowered occasionally throughout the year. We lead two annual jewelry making workshops at the Downtown Women's Center and with Girls Today Women Tomorrow, WE's community partner organizations. Each time the attendees are overwhelmed not only that a group of women are taking time out for them, but that they can tap into their inner creativity and leave with beautiful jewelry they would not normally have access to. It is extremely rewarding, and I thank the ladies of Women Empowered for creating such an environment.

We look forward to partnering with WE again at the "WE Connect: Professional Networking Mixer" in Santa Monica on May 23rd, and will continue to donate to the annual fundraiser in November, "A Night of Empowerment." This is a great organization to get involved with - in any capacity!!.

Our company recently learned about Women Empowered last year and were excited to work with them towards their wonderful mission. For their first annual Cocktail Fundraiser we donated a pair of handcrafted earrings to their silent auction. This year we also participated in a jewelry workshop that WE hosted for members of the Downtown Women's Center in Los Angeles. We look forward to partnering with this organization again in the near future -- hats off to them for creating a great opportunity!

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

Experiencing the joy of women in and outside of the group as they explored their creativity in the jewelry workshop!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Suggest they continue in their efforts to empower women & young girls.

WOW! So Impressed with these ladies! I met Shelly when she came to my business for an appointment. We sat and talked on end about her inspiring story and her journey with WE. It was incredibly touching and I was over-joyed to have the opportunity to donate my business services to the WE fundraising event! (and even more excited when she invited me to attend!) Upon arriving at the event, let me just say - these girls over-deliver!

Shelly's passion for women's empowerment was visible everywhere from the minute I walked in! Her huge vision and giving heart has created a community of strong, beautiful women who are truly making a difference on this planet. The fundraiser was immaculate it it's appearance, the crowd, and the un-believable donations these ladies were able to receive for their silent auction.

I can't say enough good things about WE and my joy in now being a member! I look forward to continued memories and friendships that will bloom out of this beautiful women's organization.

GO LADIES! And THANK YOU for coming from the heart and sharing your light with the world!

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

New Friendships!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Tell the world about it so we could have MORE lovely ladies participating in the vision of WE!

I attended Women Empowered's gala at the Angeleno Hotel and had a wonderful time learning about the organization from members as well as staff. I found WE to be a well-organized not-for-profit organization whose mission is clear and member involvement active.

As a donor, I like to see my money go towards positive causes. I felt comfortable donating to WE since the members are not only empowering themselves, but reach out to the greater community in order to help other women empower themselves. For example, members travel to the downtown Los Angeles Women's Shelter to give manicures to women who cannot afford such luxuries, let alone the basic necessities. The personal stories I heard inspired me since not only did the women in the shelter feel greater confidence about their appearance and appreciate being able to bond with WE members, but the WE members themselves also felt empowered; they found that they can make a difference in someone's life, and sometimes the little things are the big things.

I plan on donating again before year-end and would recommend this nonprofit organization to anyone who loves a woman!

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

...attending the WE gala and speaking with WE members.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

...have it expand!
