Women helping women, it has a good feel and Imagine the Possibilities..
I have been very fortunate to have family and friends – my angels – in my life during difficult times, their support has made all the difference in my life. Having said this, my difficult times can not be compared, at all, to what the women at Sylvia’s Haven have had to endure.
Sylvia’s Haven, provides transitional housing for homeless women and their children, where women are offered food, shelter and the opportunity to recover from the trauma of homelessness, enabling them to go on to build confidence and learn skills to become self-sufficient and independent. Sylvia first started her mission to help women, by taking three pregnant homeless women into her own home, she is a remarkable women.
I first heard of Sylvia, from an article in the Boston Globe, many years ago. I started to send donations, when I could, and have followed the progress of Sylvia’s Haven through the years. Last week, I called Sylvia and asked to meet her and visit Sylvia’s Haven; I was impressed by her caring for “her girls” and her long fight to keep things going.
I have decided that I want to help, a small way of giving back for my good fortune in life. Since I have developed my own Women Only Travel trips, it seemed like a perfect way to help – so I will make a donation to Sylvia’s Haven for each Women Only Trip that I do. Women helping women, it has a good feel and Imagine the Possibilities…
