We SOOOOOOO want you to be part of this…Brave Girl Truth Card Exchange

Brave Girls Club -  Full Circle Exchange -Truth Card ExchangeThis is an invitation to YOU…and we hope you pass this on to to anyone you know and love who wants to be part of something extraordinary.

This is the first of MANY that we will do for the women in MANY parts of the world…so if you can’t do it this time, you will be able to do it next time for sure!

Every day we hear the stories of trials and horrific circumstances faced by women in our own countries and in far away places. Whether these sisters are victims of natural or man-made disasters or even victims of human trafficking, our tender hearts go out to them and we often wish there was something, anything, we could do to help. You know the feeling, right? We ache for them to be set free from their pain, whatever pain that is. In the worst cases, we ache for them to be set free from the situations and beliefs that oppress them…..but often it seems there is nothing we can really do to make a difference.

What if there really was a way to help? What if there was a way to let them know that they are loved…that we are thinking of them, and that they are not alone. What if there was a way for Brave Girls all over the world to come together and do something amazing to bring them comfort and encouragement?

If there really was a way to help, would you accept our invitation? WE SO WANT YOU TO BE A PART OF THIS!

If you’re willing to hear more, then this is going to get exciting!! Please please please watch this short video and you’ll see what we’re talking about…

…it’s called the Truth Card Exchange:

 

 

The Truth Card Exchange is an important part of a project, a revolution, that we have been working on for a very long time…something that we believe in with all of our hearts. The reason we believe in it is because with ALL OF YOU, we know that as a group we can make an enormous difference in the lives of our brave girl sisters who need it the most.

How the Truth Card Exchanges will work: Over time we will identify different groups of women that we will target for a specific period of time, brave sisters from places all over the world, including right here at home. (We’ll connect with these women through our partnership with Full Circle Exchange, an innovative non-profit social enterprise brand dedicated to empowering women to rise above poverty through design partnerships and economic opportunities that are sustainable, holistic and dignified.)

We will put out a short-term ‘call for Truth Cards’ to be sent to us at the Brave Girl Clubhouse, and then we will pass them on as part of other projects we may be doing for them.  We will provide you with a printable ‘kit’ with simple instructions on how to make the cards and how to put your own personal touch on them to make them very personal communications between you and the brave girl who will be receiving them. It’s simple!

What to do next?

Click the links below to learn about our very first TRUTH CARD EXCHANGE we are doing to lift up, support, and love our brave sisters across the world….and how YOU can be involved!

It’s easy, it’s fun, it’s contagious, it will absolutely make a difference, and we hope YOU will be a part of it!

    I am so excited to do this with my Athena Campers this summer! We will send you cards we make from our magical Girl Power camp to spread the healing to our sisters all over the world.

    I have a group of 30 to 70 women who meet monthly to scrapbook, rubber stamp, create jewelry or just sit and visit. We have been together now for about 6 years, and are very committed. We also love to support local charities through our creativity. I would like to sign our group up for this very encouraging uplifting endeavor. Do you need any kind of info. from me for our group, or shall we just create the cards and send them to you?

      Hi, Tammie – This is wonderful!! There are no special instructions for groups…we are excited to have you make cards and send them to us. Since you meet monthly, you no doubt have tons and tons of little bits and pieces that you can use. There are no rules…just be as creative as you like and use up your stashes of stuff with the Truth Card printouts. We are SO thankful for your help, for everyone’s help. Together we can do amazing things, right???! Please give everyone in the group and big hug and kiss on the cheek from me and Melody…we are SO THANKFUL FOR EACH OF YOU!!!

    Was away to participate in the Jan truth cards. I am so looking forward to the next time. Thank you for making this huge commitment to helping others. Brave Girls is an awesome organization! Keep up the good work.

    I sent you some truth cards – you should have received them yesterday. Such a worthy project that I am thrilled to have a small part in.

    I was wondering, however, if perhaps you could start a gallery area, where we could post what we send. It would be so cool to see the truth cards that are being made.

  6. cheryl andrews says

    My heart was longing for something exactly like this! I am so grateful for this opportunity to fulfill, my need to create and give back to someone else, I am excited to get started!

  7. Shayne says

    I spent the 1st day of the new year with my daughters making Truth Cards for these precious women. They are in the mail and we can’t wait to do it again. Thanks for including us.

  8. Barbara Konopa says

    I mailed you 21 Truth Cards today. Hope you get them by Saturday. Can I continue to make them and send them when I get a bunch?? Or do I wait until you ask for more?

  9. says

    Hey girls ~ I am SOOOO excited about this project for these women across the world! Thank you Melody and Kathy for inspiring others from around the world. I sent three cards today – I sure HOPE they reach you in time. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity in Servant Leadership :)

    This is so amazingly fantastic. I am soooo proud of you gals. I am jumping in today to make some cards. Hopefully they will reach you in time!
    love you so much!

  11. says

    LOVE this project and love that we can all send some truth and love to hearts that need lots of both! My cards won’t arrive in time – I’m in Australia – but can I send them anyway and will they be included in future exchanges? xo

  12. says

    I’m in. Not sure if i can make the deadline, but I am downloading the kit so I will be ready for future mailings. Blessings to you for taking this on.

  13. Ami says

    I mailed 16 last night! Woo HOO!!!!! I’ll make more for future trips too!!!! Thanks for giving this opportunity to Bless others! Love you Melody Ross and Brandi too!!!! All of you Brave Girls ROCK!

  14. Audrey says

    I would love to be part of this, I hope there is many more to come as the deadline was a little tight for the first one. I don’t think mine would reach the States in time, coming from Australia. I’ll definately participate in the future. Good luck Melody have a safe and successful trip.

  15. says

    I just finished printing out my “Truth card kit” and will be making some tonight! They will be in the mail to you tomorrow (is there mail on the 1st? if not then the 2nd LOL) Melody, as usual, you ROCK!! You are such an inspiration!! God Bless you!!

    Working on my cards now! I posted a link to this page on the Life Book 2013 site and the Life Book 2013 FB page to reach out to everyone there. Let this amazing outreach spread throughout the world ♥

  17. Colleen Williams says

    Oh my gosh my hearts just fit to bursting with excitement! After reading, crying and smiling through the video and the post of what Truth Card will do…I am going to host a Brave Girl Truth Card Party at my home in OZ. I started organising things already! Im so excited. Thank you BG for planting the seed, now its up to us all to nurture and love this into action. If you are in Perth WA…and are interested…please contact me to find out where/when/time ect. Love and Light to you all xxx

  18. says

    This is absolutely the direction my heart has been headed in – I’m on board! Thank y’all for your sensitivity to these women. I hope to encourage them!

  19. says

    thank-you so much for allowing me to be part of this amazing work. I have asked all of the folks who visit my flea market page to join in as well. I will get my little packet of cards off to you tomorrow. I feel such a sense of gratitude as I make each one. OXO L

  20. Mikell says

    I love this! Can’t wait to make some cards! Thank you for the inspiring idea. I feel blessed and want to return the love.

  21. says

    I made four cards this afternoon. It took a lot of time and they aren’t perfect, but I kept telling myself…”Melody says perfection is not allowed!” haha It was very satisfying. Putting them in the mail tomorrow :)

  22. says

    My 10 year old daughter and I are in. This is one of the most powerful projects I have seen and will be a great way to teach so many life-lessons for my daughter and truly make a difference in the lives of other women. Thankyou for this opportunity.

  23. Amy Nutzell says

    I’m in – I can’t wait to get started. Will do as many as I can even under my circumstances – a few is better than none!

  24. Lori51 says

    I have already started to create my truth cards. I cannot wait to get them in the mail. Thank you for doing this. God bless your journey and mission.

  25. Annie Harris says

    …yes yes yes yes a million times yes…and this is why my Soul has been fed with love…this is why Brave Girls everywhere know the LOVE and HEALING of BRAVE GIRLS CLUB! And the amazing unconditional love of Melody and Kathy…and all Brave Girls staff! Stand up…be strong…create…help these women identified by FULL CIRCLE EXCHANGE! God is with them as they walk this path…

  26. says

    What a fabulous idea! I have been trying to think of something positive and loving to do in response to the Indian woman being gang raped…this is it! Count me in!!

  27. Martha says

    I love this idea and can’t wait to help!
    I do have a question….what if these sisters we’re making cards for don’t speak english?

  28. Trula Hepner says

    As soon as I get home from work I will watch the video and print everything … I dont even need to know what the video is all about, you ladies have helped me so much this past year, if you asked me to jump until I could touch the moon, I would start immediately … count me in !

  29. Krista Harris says

    Okay, so I am challenging myself to create 42 Truth Cards… one for each year of life I have been allowed to freely live, so far. I will let you all know when I have completed this ambitious task. Also, I am planning to gather a group of girlfriends, and their daughters, to share this message of Truth and Encouragement from one brave girl to another. I think I will approach my local craft store, and see if they would be willing to let me host a “Brave Girls Club Truth Card Creation Celebration”, using their classroom. Anyway, these are couple of ideas I have been inspired to pursue in hopes of contributing to this mission. I would love to hear how everyone else is approaching this life changing project?

  30. Sian says

    SO EXCITED and SO PROUD of YOU, Brave Girls Club! What an amazing project to take part in, a ture movement! Good for you! Can”t wait to get started!

  31. says

    I read this and all the links and watched the video. I cried through the entire thing. To think we could touch others in such desperate situations is such a beautiful God thing. It’s late and I’m in bed, but first thing tomorrow I’m sitting at the table and making as many cards as I can…and getting them to the post office Monday morning EARLY. Thank you SO much for giving us that are so blessed such an awesome opportunity to make a difference!

  32. Beverley Clement says

    Dear Brave Girls Club, What a marvelous plan to bring sunshine to someone, somewhere in the world who really needs a lift, encouragement, support, boost to their spirit, caring. I am in on this plan and will be sending you my cards every month. Thank you for being such a loving, caring group of women. You have certainly brought sunshine into my life. I’m glad I can share some of that sunshine.

  33. Jamie Brzezinski says

    Thank you for all you do! So many days your Brave girl emails are directed right at me. I have been able to pass them on and spread your website to other women who need to hear words of encouragement. You always make me believe or at least try on the hard days. It is easier for me to encourage and give to others. You are truly a gift from God and the only way I have stayed positive through my job this year. Thank you kind ladies.
