BENEFITING: Dress for Success

EVENT DATE: Jan 20, 2013

Amara Poolswasdi Hulslander

THE STORY:

Hi everyone!  

I've been a volunteer for Dress for Success Worldwide-West since their doors opened in December 2009. As an in-house volunteer I helped organize the first annual Power Walk and lead a team of runners to the 2012 Honda LA Marathon.   

The Worldwide-West office helps coordinate regional programs along the West Coast to ensure that all women who need help receive it. In addition to managing regional programs, they have served over 2,000 clients by partnering with over 125 community agencies.    

I wholly believe in the mission of Dress for Success. They promote a uniquely sustainable model of giving and receiving. All donations received provides professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.   

It's a smart and sustainable way to get women back to where they belong: in the workplace, creating a stable future for their families, all while maintaining financial independence from public assistance. 

• With a small gift of $10 you can ensure that a deserving woman receives the perfect suit for her first interview!  

• A donation of $25 allows one women to benefit from 5 sessions in the Career Center where she will meet with a career counselor and receive tips on how to sharpen her interview skills and perfect her résumé.  

• Your $50 gift enables a woman to participate in two of our financial literacy sessions where she will learn valuable skills such as balancing a check book, online banking, and how to apply for a mortgage!  

• A donation of $150 will provide one woman with a year’s membership in the Professional Women’s Group, giving her access to monthly workshops and information on financial literacy, health and wellness, workplace issues and more!    

So, if you want to do some good but don't feel like running a marathon, donate and I'll help you connect the dots. :) Every little bit goes a long way!
