I have had the privilege to attend two events of WIP. Both events were positive and uplifting for women. I am thankful to have been involved with this organization whose focus is to celebrate and help females better themselves in every area of their lives. I excitedly gave donations to WIP because I knew that whatever I gave, would benefit some woman or girl who needed help or who had achieved greatly. Encouragement and celebration are two awesome gifts to give women, whether it done verbally or tangibly.

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

Help WIP to come up with more ways to get funding because there are so many women who need help and encouragement.

I've enjoyed working with WIP as a volunteer. The vision is strong and meaningful. Each of the events provide structure and hope for all women. WIP offers hope to women that may not know their value and connect them with others that are willing to assist them in reaching for the stars.

Hello, my name is Rose Hines and I would like to thank all of you for the work you do. My daughter entered me in the contest for Mother's Day. Even though I did not win, I won just the same. The flowers that were sent in my daughter's name are simply beautiful. The unique basket is something I will keep long after the flowers are gone. I just wanted to thank all of you and to encourage each of you to keep up the good work that you do. Thank you so much and may God bless each of you!

My recent first volunteer effort was to facilitate a workshop on Interviewing for several of the women associated with one of WIP's community partners. The experience was rewarding because it offered me an opportunity to connect with others that could use my expertise. The ladies were able to gain inisight and suggestions on how best to approach the job market. They were engaged and found the time well spent.

I would encourage anyone to consider volunteering with WIP and supporting the organization financially. It will be time and money well spent.

I have enjoyed working with WIP (Women Identify Purpose) as both a volunteer and now as a board member. The vision has allowed me and many other women to be touched both emotionally as well as mentally. Each event that I have been involved with has provided a forum where women are able to uplift other women by sharing not only their struggles but also their accomplishments. The events that I have attended as a volunteer have finally given purpose the struggles and trials I have personally endured as a single mother with a limited budget. When women know that they are not alone in their struggles and there is someone who has endured AND overcome, they are empowered by the strength of those around them. This organization not only gives hope to women who feel powerless but connects them with other women and other organizations that will help them step by step rise to the next level of success. I have been able to encourage others that I have met as well as be encouraged when I needed that extra push! Thanks, WIP!!

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

such a way that after every event, I leave inspired by what I have heard and have a greater desire to do whatever I can to to help every woman I come into contact with.

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

increase the marketing so more women who need help would know that WIP is the first step to a major life change. I would also donate in a great financial way so that more women could be personally touched by this organization.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of board members?

Definitely
