Description

Gratitude + Grace // Creative Fundraiser for Uganda

Saturday May 18 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In 2010 I traveled to Uganda for a Teacher Exchange program - a trip that changed my life and purpose forever. (also where I found love) Since then I have been eager to visit again - waiting for a time when I could share something meaningful, specifically with women and girls. That time has come - I am traveling back to Uganda in July of 2019 to serve with 3 organizations //

Days for Girls International, which "increases access to menstrual care and education by developing global partnerships, cultivating social enterprises, mobilizing volunteers, and innovating sustainable solutions that shatter stigmas and limitations for women and girls." // Sseko Designs, which "creates beautiful ethically made stylish fashion pieces, we provide employment and scholarship opportunities to women in Uganda who are working to pursue their dreams and overcome poverty." // S.O.U.L. Foundation, who Fosters sustainable and vibrant Ugandan communities through unique partnerships focused on education, women's empowerment, food security, and maternal health." With each of these organizations I will be facilitating The Daring Way work, based on the research and curriculum of Dr. Brené Brown, to discuss vulnerability, courage, shame-resilience, and self-compassion.

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm // using the research of Dr. Brené Brown we will learn:

+ what it means to live Wholeheartedly
+ the connection between gratitude, joy, and vulnerability
+ how to cultivate joy in ordinary moments
+ the difference between feeling grateful and practicing gratitude

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm //

+ create Gratitude Jars (all supplies included)

** $40 includes light snacks, wine, worksheets and all art supplies

all proceeds will be used for travel to/from Uganda, in country travel and lodging, food and supplies for activities.
