Did you know that today is Giving Tuesday??
#GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It is touted as a "global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world". GivingTuesday is a global movement that reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and radical generosity. S.O.A.R. continues to do the work year after year within our community.
To date, S.O.A.R. has served over 400 people with its writing for healing workshops. This year, we are raising $10,000 to fund SOAR'S first annual My Daughter's Power Retreat where young women who are at pivotal moments in their lives will be paired with Mother Mentors. These mentors assist young women such as those navigating aging out of foster care to other young ladies just seeking guidance on their journey into adulthood.
We can all remember the challenges of navigating that stage of life when you transition from a girl to a woman. Some of us still have the scars to show for it. Some of us are still trying to work through the traumas, the malicious words, the mistakes, etc. Let's make sure the next generation of women have the tools and support to step into womanhood well-equipped.
SOAR's Purpose is to empower others to claim their space through our writing for healing workshops and retreats.
SOAR's Mission is to use writing as a tool to create a safe space that promotes healing and emotional literacy.
SOAR's Goal is for black women to reclaim their voices to address barriers to their potential.
So Others May Ascend Righteously #SOAR
