I have been blessed to work with some amazing people over the years and this year is no exception. I have an amazing group of women that I would love to gift with a $100 scholarship to attend a spiritual retreat with me in Asheville, NC. I have already given them 50% off on the retreat cost, but would like to provide some additional support, as they have all gone through some significant family and financial challenges. Below is a little bit of their stories and ways you can help me reach this goal, as well as information about gifts for you too!
Prizes and Free Gift For Participants
When you make a love offering to the Crossroads Coaching Fund for this fundraiser, you will have your name entered in this month’s raffles to win some wonderful prizes (your name will be entered for every $10 love offering – so for example, if you make a $100 love offering, your name will be entered 10 times). Everyone who participates will also receive a free gift of a MP3 recorded guided meditation I created to set up your energy system for the day ahead to help you have a GREAT DAY! Read on to learn more…
I wanted to share a little bit about the people who will benefit from this Fundraiser. Thank you for helping me help them!
Candidate One – This kind soul is the mother of a beautiful little boy. He was born with Down syndrome and other physical challenges that will require special care for his lifetime. His mother has been the principal caregiver for the seven years of his life and she is the most loving, wonderful mother! Along with caring for her son (including having to purée all his food, attempt to communicate with him as he is non-verbal, and meet his other needs), she has also had a chronic illness herself. She has had many other challenges along the way, but instead of giving up, she continues to push herself to learn and grow into her highest potential. She is a very gifted intuitive and has great personal insight. I am very happy to be able to coach her and help her move into her empowerment!
Candidate Two – Have you ever met anyone who always makes everyone feel at home? This candidate is like that. She is so genuinely kind and friendly that she is the heart of whatever group she is in. She always is willing to help and encourage and often takes care of everyone instead of taking care of herself. She has raised a beautiful daughter with Asperger’s Syndrome on her own and also cared for her mother, both of which still live with her. This last year has brought a lot of financial challenges with unexpected expenses because of medical challenges, cars breaking down, and debt from college. Despite all that is on her plate, she continues to focus on how she can grow spiritually, help others, and learn how to unconditionally love and support herself. I am incredibly grateful our paths have crossed and feel very honored to be able to help her continue growing her immense spiritual and personal gifts.
Candidate Three – I have great love and respect for this candidate! She has gone through many trials in her life, including going through breast cancer a year ago. She has spent her career learning about how to help others through studying nursing, nutrition, acupuncture, and social work. Going through cancer and chemotherapy deepened her commitment to a path of spiritual growth, deep inner reflection, and a desire to be of service to others. She has great self-awareness and I feel very lucky to have been a part of her journey! I would love to help her continue growing and healing through a scholarship for this retreat.
How You Can Participate
Coaching Fund Love Offering – Visit the Coaching Fund page at the link below and your name will be entered into the drawing for every $10 love offering. For example, if you made a $100 love offering, you would be entered 10 times into the raffle. We will be pulling names for prizes on 5/11 (New Moon Circle), 5/21 (Women’s Wisdom Book Club) and 5/30 (Spiritual Retreat) and you will be notified if you win. Your name will stay in the drawing for the entire month, so the earlier you make a love offering, the more chances you will have to win! The goal is to provide $100 Scholarships to each of the candidates. Any additional funds raised will be used to meet the goals of the Coaching Fund to provide affordable, ongoing coaching support for those who need it through scholarships, discounted events, and discounted coaching sessions.
