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!
Women Identity Purpose (WIP) is geared toward the overall well being of all women. If there is a need WIP is there. Whether the need involves helping another agency or nonprofit meet its staffing needs for a particular event that speaks to the mission of WIP OR if the need involves WIP hosting an event just to encourage women of all backgrounds....where there is a need WIP is always available to step in and help. I've attended several events and I've always left more motivated and inspired not only to do more in my own life but in the life of others.
