I first discovered BoldeReach when it chose a charity I volunteered for as its beneficiary. Together, the two organizations held a very successful fundraiser, that gave a great boost to the beneficiary's work of preventing and freeing children from sexual trafficking.
I was so impressed by the quality, candor, intelligence, and hard work of the BoldeReach Board that I was honored to be invited to join them.
Over five years, I watched these extraordinary women devote their time, talent, treasure, and unfailing good humor to learning about, promoting, and raising funds for several terrific Colorado-based international charities devoted to helping our global sisters and our global children lead healthier, safer lives through:
--clean water and sanitation projects,
--rapid response grants for urgent human rights issues,
--education and leadership classes for orphans and low-income children, and this year
--bicycles for healthcare providers and low-income families
I left the Board ONLY because of a need to focus on other areas of my life, but I could not admire this group of women more. They are role models for how to behave in a world that cries out for help, justice, and love.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I researched the results of Boldreach's funds on microcredit loans and rapid-response grants and was in tears reading of the powerfully transformative changes for the better such funds made in the lives of so many women and their families!
