Supporting a good cause!
This May 10th is the Power Walk for Dress for Success. The event will take place in New York City at Manhattan’s Riverside Park at 10am and I’ll be walking to support Dress for Success alongside my lovely husband. This event will take place in five countries and over 30 cities and I want to invite all of you to support this important cause.
First, let me tell you why I love Dress for Success:
This wonderful not-for-profit organization empowers women by giving them the tools they need to succeed in their careers. In my case, I married right before I graduated from college and my new job as step-mom and wife distracted me from my career goals. I had a job that gave me money but it didn’t make me happy. When I heard about the Going Places Network, a six-week course by Dress for Success to prepare you to find a job, I expected just that, a class about resume writing and interview tips. I must say these ladies exceeded my expectations, they are caring and supportive while also tough and strict and they certainly gave me the push I needed. I haven’t reached my goal yet but I know I will because in my case I learned to balance life and career. I learned that I can adore my family but I have to take care of ME too and do what makes ME happy.
I want to clarify that although the organization’s goal is helping disadvantaged women, they help women from all walks of life. Whether you have an education or not, single or married, whether you have a job or not, or if you are just a little lost and need guidance, these ladies are there to help.
This organization helps a great deal of women by building their confidence and helping them succeed in work and life and I want to help them continue doing so by raising money for this event. So I’m asking all of you lovely people to go to their website to http://www.dfspowerwalk.org and donate (If you want to support my fundraising, I’m participant Claudia Sader, thanks!) or if you want to participate in the walk you can also sign up and get more people involved if you can.
Thanks in advance 🙂
