Please reflect on your blessings and those who may not be so blessed. Assess your expenses and decide what you can share to help others. We know every dollar donated has a positive impact on another life plus blesses the giver. Did you know that people who share their gratitude lower their blood pressure, sleep more restfully, decrease levels of depression, and improve their relationships with others? This study is by University of Zurich psychology professor William Ruch.

As board members of Weld Women2Women (W2W), we are tasked with fundraising year-round. To help others we must raise money. Our founding members started W2W by each asking 10 of their friends to donate $100, and those friends also asked their circles to give.

So our “tradition” is to use the final 100 days of each year to seek out community members to donate to W2W. Our goal is to raise $25,000 so we can continue to help as many women as possible. We are only half way there at $11,775, so we need your help.
