This 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.
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!
