We’re spotlighting another innovative nonprofit this month — their mission statement says it all: She’s the First provides scholarships to girls in low-income countries with the goal of creating first-generation graduates and our next generation of global leaders. At STF, it’s not about getting her getting school; it’s about getting her to graduation. Along the way, we equip her with all the tools she’ll need to be successful – both inside and outside of her classroom.
We were thoroughly impressed with this organization’s multi-faceted approach to ensuring young women reach their full capacity. From covering the basics (like food, clothing, and shelter) to financial assistance to personal mentorship, the team at She’s the First has clearly done their homework on how to best support and grow our next generation of female leaders. INSPIRING to say the least!
She’s the First will receive 10% of proceeds from purchases on our online store this month. We also encourage you to visit their website (https://shesthefirst.org/our-focus/) to learn about other ways to support them!
What do you see when you look at the above pattern? My first thought … an orange zig-zag … what is this … ? I am so glad my curiosity was piqued — because after learning what I did from one Instagram post to the next; and then going through their website to find even more information — I will never see an orange zig-zag in the same way again.
This month, we are truly honored to partner with Speak Your Silence, a nonprofit on a mission to conquer the stigma of child sexual abuse, fulfilled by each person who wears their symbol, #TheStitch. 100% of donations from their brand will fund in-person, one-on-one counseling for those directly affected.
We reached out to Speak Your Silence because we were not only intrigued by their mission, but we were inspired by their story. Please go to their website (speakyoursilence.org) to learn for yourself about a real-life hero who has used his story to impact and empower so many others. We couldn’t be more proud to collaborate with such an amazing and innovative non-profit.
10% of proceeds from purchases this month will be donated directly to Speak Your Silence – we hope you’ll join us in supporting them!
10% of all purchases this month will be donated to Bay Area Rescue Mission, a non-profit in Richmond, CA serving the community through meal & resource distribution, shelter provision, job & life skills training, job placement, spiritual programs & Bible classes, education, counseling, and more. Please take a moment to visit their website and learn about the wealth of services they provide.
We started our relationship with Bay Area Rescue Mission last year, making quarterly soap donations to their shelters. During our first visit to drop off some soap, we were extremely impressed by their operations and facilities; probably one of the most organized warehouses we’ve encountered! And since then, we’ve visited them several times and we’ve always been met with respect, great rapport, and downright good work ethic. It’s no surprise to us that Bay Area Rescue Mission provides job training and work opportunities to their residents because it shows! It’s a telltale sign of good leadership.
For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen. (Romans 11:36)
This month, we’re spotlighting Ruby’s Place, a non-profit in Hayward, CA that provides comprehensive prevention and supportive services to the community and people impacted by domestic violence, human trafficking or homelessness. Please take a moment to visit their website and learn about the wealth of services they provide – this shout-out doesn’t even scratch the surface of the incredible work they do.
We started our relationship with Ruby’s Place last year, making quarterly soap donations to their shelters. Every time we go to drop off the bars, we are met with the most compassionate and friendly people – it’s one of those encounters that leave you smiling as you walk out the door, and you find yourself still smiling when you get to the car. We couldn’t be more proud to support an organization that provides for the practical and emotional needs of the individuals they serve. BRAVO!
10% of all purchases this month will be donated to Ruby’s Place, and of course, look for additional ways to support them on their website!
