Why choose Uncommon Threads for your end of year donation?
Just ask our clients how they feel after a session at Uncommon Threads…
“I feel like I belong in society.”
“I feel strong and powerful.”
“I feel human again.”
What would you give to help a woman feel strong and powerful?
Please take a minute to learn about Karla, a courageous and hard-working woman who has been an Uncommon Threads client and is now a volunteer and advocate. Her story is a difficult one, but Karla’s strength and determination will inspire you.
It’s that time of the year when you are bombarded with donation requests and it is hard to decide where your money will make an impact. Uncommon Threads’ goal is to strengthen women. For when a woman feels strong and confident, she can move forward. Whether it’s pursuing employment or education, taking care of a family, or moving through struggles and challenges, self-esteem is key for making positive and lasting changes.
Please help us empower more women like Karla this year.
Uncommon Threads has recently doubled in size to accommodate more women and decrease the wait for an appointment. In 2020, we expect to serve over 1,200 low-income women with dignity and respect. But we cannot do this without your help! Your contribution also pays for important programs to give low-income women a “step up.”
Whether you can donate $10 or $1,000, every dollar counts!
“And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.”
― Mark Anthony, The Beautiful Truth
