“Never underestimate the power of a kind woman. Kindness is a choice that comes from incredible strength.” – Maya Angelou
International Women’s Month represents different things to different people. It is a time for us to remember to look past our borders, bodies, race, and religion; a time for us to think about how we can make future progress and a positive impact on those around us; and a time for us to appreciate the incredible women we have the honor of working with each day.
We’ve shared with you a little about our superheroes at Spread the Joy – the strong forces that stand on our Board of Directors; however, you have yet to meet the many #sheroes behind the scenes that have helped Spread the Joy grow into the foundation it is today.
We wanted to highlight our #sheroes and tell you a little more about them. We are in absolute awe of the dedication and drive they have, and we can’t wait to see what this empowered group of women can do together in time.
