Last Saturday I pre-empted my usual Wealthy Women's Lifestyle post to announce the creation of a social network that is a companion to the Wealthy Women's Resource Guide blogsite. We went "live" last Thursday with womenlighte.ning.com and the response to invitations to join has been overwhelming!
Today, though I 'd like to place into the spotlight an organization here in New Canaan, CT that has got it all right - the Young Women's League. Through the leadership of it's current President, Tina Feldman, this organization has grown both in membership and outreach. In addition to raising money for local causes, YWL participates in several programs such as newcanaantravelplanner.org, which offers discount travel services comparable to other websites such as orbitz. A portion of each trip arrangement is donated to the Giving Fund, which is then funneled into local charities. They are also working with I.b.l.a.s.t, another business that benefits local stores and non-profits alike, to generate additional funds.
Those of you who already have access to womenlighte.ning.com can click on the "Group Events" tab to learn more about both of these organizations and perhaps get involved.
The other item you might find interesting in womenlightening is a link to a really great video I found on vivmag.com on how to cook with Agave Juice. If you have never tasted this nectar, you must try this recipe! BTW - I found a subscription to zinio.com (vivmagazine's parent co) is available at our local library for those of you who want to check out the new age of digital publishing. The chairman of Zinio is David Gilmour, who founded Fiji Water, and other commercial ventures. Very few know that profits from Fiji Water products were donated to good cause. David is an example of what wealth can do in the hands of a kind and generous steward.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Until next post, continue to believe, achieve, receive. SDG - JBH
